Hello Am a Beginner.. I know LXI Rp,address(16 bit) is an 3 byte instruction. and M/Cs =3 But am curious to know that.. if the contents are address then of course its going to perform a Memory Read operation. Then why not we consider 4 m/cs instead of 3. 1: opcode fetch 2: operand fetch 3: operand fetch 4: memory Read ???
