Pulses entering the mouse inputs are converted to separate horizontal and
vertical counts.  The 8 bit wide horizontal and vertical
counter registers  can track mouse movement without processor
intervention.

The mouse uses quadrature inputs.  For each direction, a mechanical wheel
inside the mouse will produce two pulse trains, one 90 degrees out of
phase with the other (see Figure 8-2 for details).  The phase relationship
determines direction.
