This is a tiny processor meant to be nice and simple. Here are a few of the technical goals of this processor:

1. 8-bit processor (8 bit registers and operations)
2. 16-bit address bus (capable through "segment registers" similar to the 8086
3. 1 instruction per clock cycle
4. Hopefully simple to understand code
