Abstract

One approach to system architecture relies on the premise that the most efficient architecture is one which is constrained to performing only 'single cycle' instructions. This implies that all loads and stores which allow register to register, storage to register, and register to storage operations can ideally be performed in one 'machine' cycle. The following abbreviations are used herein: (Image Omitted) A pipelined processor can be fashioned from such an architecture mold. Such pipelined processor may be provided with five banks of instruction control registers in the stream.
