The TPU is a Time Processing Unit, which is executing micro-instructions, by its micro-engine (RISC-like). These micro-instructions are stored in its internal ROM memory called micro-store. The internal micro-instruction and its address within the micro-store was unknown to the user/micro-code developer in the original design, the TPUl.
