I was looking at documentation for another 32-bit processor in order to have some idea of what 32 bit means.··I noticed that they have provided·4· single byte width ports while the Propeller has one 32 bit wide port.· Quite a departure from other RISC architectures.
To me it seems a·little difficult to·visualize how·one pin·of the Port A will be clocking an EEPROM, another pin will be Bit banging data from the EEPROM, a few more pins with be handling Chip select, AND other functions [noparse][[/noparse]such as video and a key board interface] will be working off of other pins which are all on this one and only Port.
