Implement a FSM that executes a sequence of instructions which are its input 2. Design a relatively small number of instructions that we can combine to solve many, many problems 3. Solve different tasks by changing the sequence of input instructions, not the circuit With this, we will have achieved, Big Idea #4: Universality (although it is beyond the scope of CPSC 121 to prove formally that we have achieved this) Today, we continue our look at the simple computer used in Lab 7. Reference materials are the Lab 7 handout in PDF format and the supplementary handouts already included with Lecture 24 (links to which are repeated here).and the supplementary handouts already included with Lecture 24 (links to which are repeated here)....
