Of course, the ARM architecture is directly related to the 6502 of 1975!
Leap of some degree there… can you point me at some reference linking 6502 and ARM. Intrigued how they are related, other that there is some silicon involved?
8086 i.e. x86.. where x is variable.. as the name implies
all they have done with this architecture is layer the complexity, rather than actually redesigning the processor.
and when I say "all", I couldn't do it.
Sophie Wilson (was Roger Wilson at the time), one of the main architects of the BBC micro, a 6502 device, was heavily involved in the development of the first Arm instructions set. She''s an expert in 6502, it would be expected some of that expertise went in to the Arm design. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.....hie_Wilson
. She currently works for Broadcom…but is not involved in the Raspberry Pi project
Of course, the 6502 was practically a risc device anyway, so it's not a big jump.
