3. Data Formats

The H8/300L CPU can process 1-bit data, 4-bit (BCD) data, 8-bit (byte) data, and 16-bit
(word) data. Essentially all instructions can process byte data. The bit manipulation
instructions process 1-bit data and certain data transfer and arithmetic instructions process
word data. The decimal adjust instructions process 4-bit BCD data.
The figures below show the formats in which data is stored in general registers and memory.
