1 Questions For the following code sequence ADD R1, R2, R3 SHL R3, R4, R5 SUB R1, R6, R3 SUB R5, R3, R1 (a)How many potential data hazards are there? (b) Draw a space time diagram showing the progression of the instructions through a 5-stage pipeline (the pipeline as described in notes). (c) How many cycles are saved if internal forwarding is applied? ITCS 3181 Logic and Computer Systems 2014 B. Wilkinson Slides10Quiz.ppt Modification date: Nov 22, 2014
