I never saw Computing Today.. However the apnotes and the databook for SC/MP
made it look simple. Only thing was I had an 8A-500 (Pmos first version)
an 8A-600(Nmos sc/mpII) and the 8072 (third version with NIBBLE in internal
rom). Turns out that a few inverters sorts it all out and I went for a dual
processor version and using one cpu to report on the other in a crude debug
monitor. I later used the 8a600 as an IO processor for the 8072 nibble chip
as a unique system to explore the useful techniques for multi cpu systems.
