Crafting an isa - computer architecture, Computer Engineering

Crafting an ISA:

  • We will look at some decisions facing an instruction set architect, and
  • In the design of the MIPS instruction set how those decisions were made.
  • MIPS, such as PowerPC, SPARC and Alpha AXP, is a RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) ISA.
  • few instruction formats
  • load/store architecture
  • fixed instruction length
  • RISC architectures worked due to the reason they enabled pipelining. They carry on thriving because they enable parallelism.
