Series 8000 or ALPS (Advanced Logic Processor System) was a family of low-end 8-bit microprocessor chipset developed by General Instrument. Designed in the United Kingdom, this series saw most of its success in the European market. A minimum system could be built from just two chips and a single-phase clock, which was smaller than many of the other alternatives at the time. At the heart of the system is the LP 8000 microprocessor unit.
