Abstract

:AB Disclosed is a means for supporting conditional vector operations with a conventional microsequencer augmented with two extra gates. An enable bit EN is combined with a condition code input and with the second least significant bit of the address generated by the microsequencer so that a conditional instructio generated in response to the condition code when enabled.
