.
From BYTE, 1977, Hilary Jones presents a 35-chip TTL computer on two perf boards. It's an 8-bit wide machine, with 4 opcodes and a 6 bit literal field, allowing for 64 bytes of memory space. Increasing the width to 12 or even 16 bits would boost the address space to a more practical level - especially as a MISC machine takes a lot of instructions to do useful work.

Nice finding.

And if you scroll through the full article another one follows on page 94: David Brader's Komputaar - a 6502 machine :)

Nice find! Quite a few 6502-relevant articles in this issue - perhaps worth a post over on 6502 forums?
