So, I'm going to build this little modular RISC machine.

Core isn't the right word for a division in this processor. I think `Channel`, is a bit more accurate. Although the design should scale for an arbitrary number of channels, and for channels with an arbitrary bit width, I plan to make a dual-channel, 4bit channel demonstration( an 8 bit computer). With any luck, I should be able to extend the design to a 16 bit computer, which is the limit of the largest SRAM I've been able to find for a low price. So the sections I need to design/purchase:
