This is the fourth in a series of articles on computer architecture for discrete manufacturing control problems. This particular paper evaluates a microprocessor which was presented in Part IlL The instruction set is compared to an INTEL 8080 using speed of execution and memory storage requirements as a comparison basis. The control of an industrial robot is used as an example to illustrate the power of the microprocessor. Again, the INTEL 8080 is used as a basis for the comparison.
