The log 97. Core state machine develops the idea of the 2 concurrent state machines but something is missing: the FSMs don't allow the core to request new code again. This log 20. Automated upload of overlays into program memory describes a mechanism where the code can request a reload of (new) instructions in program memory, but this is not implemented in the FSM.

The core has evolved since 2018 and the opcode mapping is a bit different, in particular the MOV and CALL opcodes have changed. However, the OVL opcode is still an alias for CALL (whatever) PC.

I have updated the FSM diagrams :

The source code is not updated though.
