You might want to check out the 6402. I have a bunch of them from some
syncronous modems I scrapped a few decades back. It has the distinction
of being from the same family as the 6100 'PDP-8 on a chip' micro, and
is fairly bare-bones. It has several simple registers, but much of the
config is done with hardware by enabling pins and what-not.
