Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 4 Implementation of Sum of Products (SOP) Implementation of Sum of Products (SOP) SOP (Sum of Products) is the key element for most DSP algorithms. So let’s write the code for this algorithm and at the same time discover the C6000 architecture. Two basic operations are required for this algorithm. (1) Multiplication (2) Addition Therefore two basic instructions are required Y = N  a n x n n = 1 * = a 1 * x 1 + a 2 * x 2 +... + a N * x N

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 5 Two basic operations are required for this algorithm. (1) Multiplication (2) Addition Therefore two basic instructions are required Implementation of Sum of Products (SOP) Implementation of Sum of Products (SOP) Y = N  a n x n n = 1 * So let’s implement the SOP algorithm! The implementation in this module will be done in assembly. = a 1 * x 1 + a 2 * x 2 +... + a N * x N

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 6 Multiply (MPY) The multiplication of a 1 by x 1 is done in assembly by the following instruction: MPYa1, 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

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 7 Multiply (.M unit).M.M Y = 40  a n x n n = 1 * The. M unit performs multiplications in hardware 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.

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 8 Addition (.?).M.M.?.? Y = 40  a n x n n = 1 * MPY.Ma1, x1, prod ADD.?Y, prod, Y

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 15 Load Unit “.D” It is worth noting at this stage that the only way to access memory is through the.D unit..M.M.L.L A0A1A2A3A15 Register File A............ a1 x1 prod 32-bits Y.D.D Data Memory

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 16 Load Instruction Q: Which instruction(s) can be used for loading operands from the memory to the registers?.M.M.L.L A0A1A2A3A15 Register File A............ a1 x1 prod 32-bits Y.D.D Data Memory

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 17 Load Instructions (LDB, LDH,LDW,LDDW) A: The load instructions..M.M.L.L A0A1A2A3A15 Register File A............ a1 x1 prod 32-bits Y.D.D Data Memory Q: Which instruction(s) can be used for loading operands from the memory to the registers?

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 18 Using the Load Instructions 00000000 00000002 00000004 00000006 00000008 Data 16-bits 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. address FFFFFFFF

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 19 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. Using the Load Instructions 00000000 00000002 00000004 00000006 00000008 Data a1 x1 prod 16-bits Y address FFFFFFFF LD *Rn,Rm

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 20 The syntax for the load instruction is: The question now is how many bytes are going to be loaded into the destination register? Using the Load Instructions 00000000 00000002 00000004 00000006 00000008 Data a1 x1 prod 16-bits Y address FFFFFFFF LD *Rn,Rm

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 22 Using the Load Instructions 00000000 00000002 00000004 00000006 00000008 Data 16-bits address FFFFFFFF 0xB0xA 0xD0xC Example: If we assume that A5 = 0x4 then: (1) LDB *A5, A7 ; gives A7 = 0x00000001 (2) LDH *A5,A7; gives A7 = 0x00000201 (3) LDW *A5,A7; gives A7 = 0x04030201 (4) LDDW *A5,A7:A6; gives A7:A6 = 0x0807060504030201 0x10x2 0x30x4 0x50x6 0x70x8 The syntax for the load instruction is: LD *Rn,Rm 01

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 23 Using the Load Instructions 00000000 00000002 00000004 00000006 00000008 Data 16-bits address FFFFFFFF 0xB0xA 0xD0xC Question: 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? 0x10x2 0x30x4 0x50x6 0x70x8 The syntax for the load instruction is: LD *Rn,Rm

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 24  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? 32 bits  So why does the instruction not allow a 32-bit move? All instructions are 32-bit wide (see instruction opcode). Loading the Pointer Rn

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 25  To solve this problem another instruction is available: MVKH Loading the Pointer Rn eg. MVKH.?a, A5 (‘a’ is a constant or label) ah ahx al a A5 MVKL a, A5 MVKH a, A5  Finally, to move the 32-bit address to a register we can use:

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 26 Loading the Pointer Rn MVKL0x1234FABC, A5 A5 = 0xFFFFFABC ; Wrong Example 1 A5 = 0x87654321 MVKL0x1234FABC, A5 A5 = 0xFFFFFABC (sign extension) MVKH0x1234FABC, A5 A5 = 0x1234FABC ; OK Example 2 MVKH0x1234FABC, A5 A5 = 0x12344321  Always use MVKL then MVKH, look at the following examples:

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 29 Creating a loop With the C6000 processors there are no dedicated instructions such as block repeat. The loop is created using the B instruction. So far we have only implemented the SOP for one tap only, i.e. Y= a 1 * x 1 So let’s create a loop so that we can implement the SOP for N Taps.

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 30 What are the steps for creating a loop 1. Create a label to branch to. 2.

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 76 Writing in Linear Assembly  Linear assembly is similar to hand assembly, except:  Does not require NOPs to fill empty delay slots.  The functions units do not need to be specified.  Grouping of instructions in parallel is performed automatically.  Accepts symbolic variable names. ZEROsum loopLDH*p_to_a, a LDH*p_to_b, b MPYa, b, prod ADDsum, prod, sum SUBB0, 1, B0 B loop

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 77 How to Write Code in Linear Assembly  File extension:  Use the “.sa” extension to specify the file is written in linear assembly.  How to write code: _sa_Function.cproc ZEROsum loopLDH*pm++, m LDH*pn++, n MPYm, n, prod ADDsum, prod, sum [count]SUBcount, 1, count [count]SUBcount, 1, count B loop.return sum.endproc.cproc defines the beginning of the code.return specifies the return value.endproc defines the end of the linear assembly code NO NOPs required NO parallel instructions required NO functional units specified NO registers required

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 78 Passing and Returning Arguments  “pm” and “pn” are two pointers declared in the C code that calls the linear assembly function.  The following function prototype in C calls the linear assembly function: int y = dotp (short* a, short* x, int count)  The linear assembly function receives the arguments using.cproc: _dotp.cprocpm, pn, count....return y.endproc

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 79 Declaring the Symbolic Variables  All the symbolic registers except those used as arguments are declared as follows:.regpm, pn, m, n, prod, sum  The assembly optimiser will attempt to assign all these values to registers.

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 80 Complete Linear Assembly Code  Note: Linear assembly performs automatic return to the calling function. _dotp.cproc pm, pn, count.reg m, n, prod, sum ZEROsum loopLDH*pm++, m LDH*pn++, n MPYm, n, prod ADDsum, prod, sum [count]SUBcount, 1, count [count]SUBcount, 1, count B loop.return sum.endproc

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 81 Function calls in Linear Assembly  In linear assembly you can call other functions written in C, linear assembly or assembly.  To do this the.call directive is used: Function1.sa _function1.cproc a, b.reg y, float1 MPYa,b,y.call float1 = _fix_to_float(y).return.endproc Fix_to_float.sa _fix_to_float.cproc fix.reg float1 INTSP fix, float1.return float1.endproc  Note: Branch out of a linear assembly routine is not allowed.

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 82 Invoking the Assembly Optimiser  The development tools recognise the linear assembler code by the file extension “.sa”.  The assembly optimiser uses the same options as the optimising C compiler.  Note: In CCS you can change the options of each file individually by right clicking on the file in the project view and selecting “File Specific Options…”.

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 94 Assembly Optimisation  To develop an appreciation of how to optimise code, let us optimise an FIR filter:  For simplicity we write: [1]

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 95 Assembly Optimisation  To implement Equation 1, we need to perform the following steps: (1)Load the sample x[i]. (2)Load the coefficients h[i]. (3)Multiply x[i] and h[i]. (4)Add (x[i] * h[i]) to the content of an accumulator. (5)Repeat steps 1 to 4 N-1 times. (6)Store the value in the accumulator to y.

Dr. Naim Dahnoun, Bristol University, (c) Texas Instruments 2002 Chapter 2, Slide 96 Assembly Optimisation  Steps 1 to 6 can be translated into the following ‘C6x assembly code: MVK.S10,B0; Initialise the loop counter MVK.S10,A5; Initialise the accumulator loopLDH.D1*A8++,A2; Load the samples x[i] LDH.D1*A9++,A3; Load the coefficients h[i] NOP4; Add “nop 4” because the LDH has a latency of 5.
