The classic text "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs"
<URL:> contains an extensive discussion of
register machines for Scheme, and was the basis for at least one Scheme
chip project at MIT. Start reading at <URL:
text/sicp/section/105/> and continue through the end.

Also see ref: [Batali 1982] "The Scheme-81 architecture---System
and chip." (The hardcopy version of the book has a picture of it.)
