Cycle Counter in Emulation increases by 10

I am debugging my application with VisualDSP++ on my BF561 on core A connected via HPUSB-ICE. I see, that when i step through the assembly, the cycle counter for core A increases for every instruction, but not by 1 but for about 10 cycles.



                       // set CYCLES to 0 manually

R7 = 0             // CYCLES is 0000000A here

P0 = R1           // CYCLES is 00000014




When i use the BF561 simulator, then the cycle counter is increased by 1 as expected.


Can anyone explain this behavior?
