SAP 2 computers are designed by A. Malvino which is far more advanced than the SAP 1 computer. SAP 2 is an 8-bit computer with 64 Kb (62 Kb RAM and 2 Kb ROM) memory and a 16-bit w-bus used as both address and data bus.

SAP-2 has 2 input/output ports: port 1 and port 2. A hexadecimal keyboard encoder is connected to port 1. It allows us to enter hexadecimal instructions and data through port 1. The hexadecimal keyboard encoder sends a ready signal to bit 0 of port 2.
