Bundles are a collection of instructions that are fetched from memory together. On the Mill there is not a single bundle pulled at a time but two half-bundles are pulled at a time which together comprise a single very long instruction and can contain over 30 distinct operations. Those two half-bundles are also decoded and issued in sync and together as a very long instruction word would. Often a whole EBB consists of a single such instruction bundle, containing all necessary operations.
