Another meaning

"Microprocessor" also meant "microcoded processor" in some circles. I have seen it used about the Alto and MAXC processors, so maybe it was a PARC thing. If those two examples are all I can find, I will not bring it up any more. Larsbrinkhoff (talk) 20:56, 7 April 2021 (CEST)

Hunh. I have never heard that one; I've always heard the term 'microcoded' for that. I wouldn't mind listing it as 'rare second meaning', if you think it's desirable. Jnc (talk) 21:57, 7 April 2021 (CEST)
Thanks. I think I'd like to see at least one occurrence outside Xerox PART for it to be worthwhile. Larsbrinkhoff (talk) 07:39, 8 April 2021 (CEST)
