PParity flag. Set/Cleared by hardware. This bit will set if Accumulator has odd number of 1’s after an operation. If not, the bit will remain cleared. It is used in serial port routines
--User definable flag
OVOverflow flag is set if there was an arithmetic overflow. For signed numbers, results greater than 127 or less than -128 will set OV flag. For unsigned numbers this can be ignored.

RS1Register bank select bit 1 (See below)
F0General purpose flag bit available for user
ACAuxiliary Carry Flag is set if carry was generated out of bit 3 in to bit 4 or if the result in the lower nibble is in the range of 0AH to 0FH. It is useful in arithmetic operations on BCD values.
