NOP : No OPeration (do nothing)

This instruction consumes one instruction cycle.

The value of this opcode (00h) is chosen to ease the identification and creation of harmless padding areas in the hexa domain. This value may be recognized in some versions of the core to skip these opcodes.

Long forms are not supported (behaviour is implementation-dependent).
