  • Notes
    A large portion of Special Register section 7 (volumes 13-16) was originally misnumbered, with the object numbers following in sequence from section 1 volume 4; these numbers have thus been given EMC_SR_1 prefixes, despite being recorded in section 7. Hence this object is EMC_SR_1/13443. The SR numbering was then ammended to the proper section 7 sequence, and it was given number EMC_SR_7/22515.
