2 TMS320 C6xx Y = N  a n x n n = 1 * Prodotto Scalare tra due vettori Instruction Set DSP System Block Diagram Scalar Product of Vector

3 TMS320 C6xx It has been shown in Introduction that SOP is the key element for most DSP algorithms. Two basic Operations are required for this algorithm. - Multiplication - Addition Therefore two basic Instructions are required Scalar Product of Vectors The implementation in this module will be done in assembly for C6xx = a 1 * x 1 + a 2 * x 2 +... + a N * x N Y = N  a n x n n = 1 * SOP Algorithm

4 Multiply (MPY) The multiplication of a 1 by x 1 is done in assembly by the following instruction: MPY a1, x1, Y MPY a1, x1, Y This instruction is performed by a multiplier unit that is called “.M” Y = N  a n x n n = 1 * = a 1 * x 1 + a 2 * x 2 +... + a N * x N

5 Multiply (.M unit).M.M Y = 40  a n x n n = 1 * The.M unit performs multiplications in hardware MPY.Ma1, x1, Y MPY.Ma1, x1, Y Note: 16-bit by 16-bit multiplier provides a 32-bit result. 32-bit by 32-bit multiplier provides a 64-bit result. 32-bit by 32-bit multiplier provides a 64-bit result.

6 Addition (.L unit).M.M.L.L Y = 40  a n x n n = 1 * MPY.Ma1, x1, prod ADD.LY, prod, Y RISC processors such as the C6000 use registers to hold the operands, so lets change this code.

7 Register File A Y = 40  a n x n n = 1 * MPY.Ma1, x1, prod ADD.LY, prod, Y MPY.MA0, A1, A3 ADD.LA4, A3, A4 MPY.MA0, A1, A3 ADD.LA4, A3, A4.M.M.L.L A0A1A2A3A4A15 Register File A............ a1 x1 prod 32-bits Y............ Let us correct this by replacing a, x, prod and Y by the registers as shown above.

8 Specifying Register Names Register File A contains 16 registers (A0 -A15) which are 32-bits wide..M.M.L.L A0A1A2A3A4A15 Register File A............ a1 x1 prod 32-bits Y............

9 Data loading (load unit.D) Q: How do we load the operands into the registers?.M.M.L.L A0A1A2A3A4A15 Register File A............ a1 x1 prod 32-bits Y............ A: The operands are loaded into the registers by loading them from the memory using the.D unit..D.D Data Memory It is worth noting at this stage that the only way to access memory is through the.D unit.

10 Load Instruction Q: Which instruction(s) can be used for loading operands from the memory to the registers?.M.M.L.L A0A1A2A3A4A15 Register File A............ a1 x1 prod 32-bits Y.............D.D Data Memory

11 Load Instructions A: The load instructions. Q: Which instruction(s) can be used for loading operands from the memory to the registers?.M.M.L.L A0A1A2A3A4A15 Register File A............ a1 x1 prod 32-bits Y............ LDB, LDH LDW,LDDW.D.D Data Memory

12 Using the Load Instructions Before using the load unit you have to be aware that this processor is, which means that each byte is represented by a unique address. Before using the load unit you have to be aware that this processor is byte addressable, which means that each byte is represented by a unique address. Also the addresses are 32-bit wide. 00000000 00000002 00000004 00000006 00000008Data16-bits 32 bits address FFFFFFFF Byte

13 The syntax for the load instruction is: Where: Rn is a register that contains the address of the operand to be loaded and Rm is the destination register. LD *Rn,Rm 00000000 00000002 00000004 00000006 00000008Data16-bitsaddressFFFFFFFF a1 x1 prod Y Using the Load Instructions

14 The syntax for the load instruction is: The question now is how many bytes are going to be loaded into the destination register? LD *Rn,Rm 00000000 00000002 00000004 00000006 00000008Data16-bitsaddressFFFFFFFF a1 x1 prod Y Using the Load Instructions

16 Example: If we assume that A5 = 0x4 then: (1)LDB *A5, A7 ; gives A7 = 0x00000001 gives A7 = 0x00000001 (2)LDH *A5,A7; gives A7 = 0x00000201 gives A7 = 0x00000201 (3)LDW *A5,A7; gives A7 = 0x04030201 gives A7 = 0x04030201 (3)LDDW *A5,A7:A6; gives A7:A6 = 0x0807060504030201 gives A7:A6 = 0x0807060504030201 00000000 00000002 00000004 00000006 00000008Data16-bits address FFFFFFFF 0xB0xA 0xD0xC 0x01 0x02 0x03 0x04 0x05 0x06 0x07 0x08 01 The syntax for the load instruction is: LD *Rn,Rm Little Endian la parte meno significativa va memorizzata per prima, all'indirizzo più basso di memoria Using the Load Instructions

17 Q: If data can only be accessed by the load instruction and the.D unit, how can we load the register pointer Rn in the first place? 00000000 00000002 00000004 00000006 00000008Data16-bits address FFFFFFFF 0xB0xA 0xD0xC 0x10x2 0x30x4 0x50x6 0x70x8 01 The syntax for the load instruction is: LD *Rn,Rm Using the Load Instructions

18 The instruction MVKL will allow a move of a 16-bit constant into a register as shown below: The instruction MVKL will allow a move of a 16-bit constant into a register as shown below: MVKL.? a, A5 (‘a’ is a constant or label) How many bits represent a full address? How many bits represent a full address? 32 bits So why does the instruction not allow a 32-bit move? So why does the instruction not allow a 32-bit move? All instructions are 32-bit wide (see instruction opcode). Loading the Pointer *Rn

19 To solve this problem another instruction is available: MVKH To solve this problem another instruction is available: MVKH eg. MVKH.? a, A5 (‘a’ is a constant or label) ahahahah ahahahahx alalalal a A5 Finally, to move the 32-bit address to a register we can use: Finally, to move the 32-bit address to a register we can use: MVKL a, A5 MVKH a, A5 Loading the Pointer *Rn

20 Always use MVKL then MVKH, look at the following examples: Always use MVKL then MVKH, look at the following examples: MVKL0x1234FABC, A5 A5 = 0xFFFFFABC Wrong 87654321 Example 1 (A5 = 0x87654321) MVKL0x1234FABC, A5 A5 = 0xFFFFFABC (sign extension) MVKH0x1234FABC, A5 A5 = 0x1234FABC OK 87654321 Example 2 (A5 = 0x87654321) MVKH0x1234FABC, A5 A5 = 0x12344321 Loading the Pointer *Rn

23 With the C6000 processors there are no dedicated instructions such as block repeat. The loop is created using the B instruction.
