The No-Operation instruction is a special instruction that does not perform any work. This instruction is mainly used for timing and memory alignment purposes, and will not update any registers or flags.

Usage Examples:

        Hex                Mnemonic                      Action

FFFF       ; NOP               n/a

Updates when Executed:

No flags or registers are updated when this instruction "executes", but a location in memory and a clock-cycle are consumed.
