A microprocessor system is associated with a main memory wherein the instructions to be executed are stored. The operation of such a system consists first in fetching an instruction at a given address within the memory, and then executing the instruction. The execution can lead to making a decision on the new address as to where to fetch the next instruction, or more often the next sequential instruction is fetched and executed.
