Abstract. The eight-bit stack processor architecture is proposed, which is designed for the FPGA implementation. The microprocessor with this architecture has small hardware costs, reduced software amount, and ability to add up to hundred new user instructions to its instruction set. The microprocessor architecture is adapted for programming the serial port communications and is able to perform the data stream parsing.

Keywords: stack processor, Forth, FPGA, VHDL.
