8080 processor

8080 is an 8-bit microprocessor from Intel, which was introduced in 1974 as the successor to the 8008. It has a data word width of 8 bits and an addressing of 16 bits over which memories with 64 KB can be addressed. The 8080 had an instruction set of 56 instructions, was clocked at 2 MHz and had a cycle time of 2 µs. With 640,000 instructions per second (0.64 MIPS) it was clearly above the performance of

the 8008. The8080, which represented

the LSI technology with 6,000 transistors and a structure width of 6 µm, was housed in a Dual Inline Package

(DIP). The 8080 was used in home computers.
