Maybe Jean-Fran├žois Garnier could enlighten us as to how a late-production HP-71B equipped with the 1LK7 would react to the issuance of that instruction, and how, on the other hand, the 1LF2 in a standard HP-71B would internally decode the corresponding opcode?

It's has always been a mystery for me why the RSI is opcode 80810 and not just 8081. Maybe this additional fetched nibble gave more time for the RSI execution? I would be glad to get the opinion of people more expert than me in the Saturn chipsets.

Due to this trailing 0, an attempt to execute RSI on a 1LF2 will probably put the CPU out of sync with the next opcodes.

As for the effect of RSI on a HP-71 with 1LK7, I don't know. Actually I'm not sure of the exact effect of RSI on the 28C.

The SASM doc says:
"This instruction causes CPU to consider any input line (ie
input register bits) presently high as a new interrupt. If
the CPU is presently in the interrupt routine it will wait
for an RTI before vectoring, otherwise the CPU will vector
immediately following the RSI instruction. For a complete
discussion on the interrupt system see the CPU Hardware
Specification (A-1LK7-9005-1). This instruction is not
available on the 1LF2 version of the Saturn CPU."


This description is not fully clear for me, and unfortunately, I don't have access to the 1LK7 CPU Hardware Specification.
