Abstract: Many exciting developments have taken place recently in the microprocessor market. New devices range from processor chips designed for use in analogue and digital communication systems to architectures which readily support high-level language run-time environments and compilers. Some such architectures have a sophistication which was quite rare in large computers until recently. This paper is a tutorial survey of recent products in both the low and the high end of the microprocessor market. It explains the motivation behind the new 16-bit devices in terms of the economic factors which drive the market, and provides some technical background in the area of high-level language run-time software structures which is necessary to understand the architectures.
