A  = 4-bit Accumulator
C  = Carry flag
X  = 4-bit General register
P  = Pointer, used for memory access
PH = Upper 2-bits of P
PL = Lower 4-bits of P, used for I/O
IC = Instruction counter, to save some space; it counts in a polynominal manner instead of linear manner
S  = Stack for the IC register
R  = 32 nibbles of RAM
There are also 512 (768 for the 3195A) bytes of ROM, where the executable code is stored.
