A2.5 About the memory model

The processor views memory as a linear collection of bytes numbered in ascending order from zero. For example, bytes 0-3 hold the first stored word, and bytes 4-7 hold the second stored word.

The processor can store words in memory in big-endian or little-endian format. Instructions are always little-endian.
