Microcode bus

ok. What is a "microcode bus." ForOldHack (talk) 04:18, 27 February 2020 (CEST)

Look at the prints; the F11 chip set allows additional chips (KEF11-A, KEF11-B) to contain additional microcode, which is carried between them and the main chips (on the basic F11 DIP) via a bus - the term 'microcode bus' therefore seems appropriate. 'Microinstruction bus' is also plausible, since it carries microinstructions from the other chips to the main chip, but since the microaddress is also carried, it's more than just the microinstructions. It carries address+data - just like a 'real' bus. Jnc (talk) 16:35, 28 February 2020 (CET)
