32-bit Pipelined RISC Processor Group 1 aka Go Us CS m152b Lab section 1 Alice Wang Ann Ho Jason Fong General Review of a Pipelined Processor IF/ID PC Control ID/EX Register File EX/MEM

MEM/WB ALU Data Memory Instruction Memory Memory Controller Design Design challenge: 32-bit processor with 16-bit memory interface On every memory access, need to get two words from memory One request Data Memory ? 16-bit interface

Two 16-bit words 32-bit word Solution: Clock memory controller twice as fast as rest of processor Results in a memory access on the rising and falling edge of the processors clock cycle Request 32-bits 32-bit Processor Memory 16-bits 16-bits

ID/EX EX/MEM MEM/WB Hardware NOP Insertion PC Adder 1 Hold PC value Insert NOP NOP IF/ID Data Forwarding and Stall Insertions: Observed Results

Sample program: Bubble-sort 6 numbers Assembler insertion of NOPs Machine code size: 66 words of memory Execution time: ~750 clock cycles Hardware data forwarding and NOP insertion: Machine code size: 35 words of memory Execution time: ~400 clock cycles Data Forwarding and Stall Insertions: Observed Results Benefits: Savings in memory and execution time Much simpler assembler Drawbacks: Hardware is now more complex Tradeoff between hardware complexity and software complexity Also demonstrates benefits of understanding the underlying architecture when designing an assembler

Conclusion Some problems we encountered: Off by one stage in pipeline Lack of experience with VHDL Order of bits from memory In Conclusion... Knowledge from previous courses Further research Simple RISC processor Pipelining Multiplier Data Forwarding and Hardware NOPs References Hennessey and Patterson, Computer Organization and Design (2nd Ed.), 1998, pages 476-495
