<processor> An 8-bit processor, with 16-bit addressing, but which could
only access 32K of memory (1-bit for indirection). The Ferranti F100-L was
designed by a British company for the British Military.
The unique feature of the F100-L was that it had a complete control bus
available for a coprocessor. Any instruction the F100-L couldn't decode was sent
directly to the coprocessor for processing. Applications for coprocessors at the
time were limited, but the design is still used in modern processors, such as
the National Semiconductor 32000 series.
