Macro

When a macro instruction is invoked, the current value of the program counter is pushed on the macro stack.
A multiplexor (MUX) that can accept instructions from either the instruction buffer or the Macro Instruction ROM and feed them to the instruction control unit is also associated with the instruction bus interface.
The Macro Instruction ROM (MIROM) is an on-chip ROM (1 K entries X 47 bits) that implements complicated instructions as sequences of simpler hardwired instructions; the opcode for the MIROM implemented instruction is effectively a branch target address into the ROM; the MIROM does not contain microcode.
