The First Microprocessor Intel created the first microprocessor 4004 in 1971. Ran at a clock speed of 108KHz Contained 2,300 transistors and was built on a 10-micron process. Then came the Z-80 by Zilog in 1976 used in TRS-80 6502 by MOS Technologies used in Apple-I and II.
The First PC In 1981 IBM introduced the IBM PC, which was based on a 4.77MHz Intel 8088 processor running the Microsoft Disk Operating System (MS-DOS) 1.0 –30,000 transistor at 4.77MHz –16 bit internal registers (IA-16) /8 bit external data bus –20 bit address bus could address upto ________Bytes? All Processors are backward compatible, like P4, AMD Athlon, etc.
Generation of Microprocessors First Generation (P1) Second Generation (P2) Third Generation (P3) Fourth Generation (P4) Fifth Generation (P5) Sixth-Generation (P6) Seventh-Generation Processors Eighth-Generation Processors
First Generation (P1) 8088 A 40 pin microprocessor with the attributes of an 8-bit and 16-bit processor. Internally it works with 16 bits but data bus is 8-bits. 20-bit address bus - capable of holding 1 Meg memory. Ran in real mode only Companion Coprocessor - 8087 –8086 Same as above only data bus is 8-bits.
Second Generation (P2) 80286 –68 pin chip in various packages. –Backwards compatible with 8088 but much faster. –True 16-bit microprocessor. –Designed for multi-user, multi-task. Has special memory protection/management circuitry that protects the various running tasks from each other and the operating system. –Operates in two modes: Real Mode - runs single tasks, addresses REAL memory up to 1 Meg. Protected Mode - runs multiple tasks, address up to 16 Meg physical memory, plus it can address virtual memory. –Virtual memory is really hard disk space being used as RAM.
Second Generation (P2) 80286 Was available in different clock speeds. Companion Coprocessor - 80287
Third Generation (P3) 80386DX –32-bit (internally & externally) successor to 80286, 132-pins –Had to do 16-bit and 8-bit I/O data transfers to keep it compatible with older software and peripherals. –Could switch between real and protected memory without a reboot.
Third Generation (P3) This advanced memory management allow for ROM shadowing, moving code out of ROM into faster RAM. –New addressing mode was developed called virtual mode. Made the 80386 appear like multiple XT processors so multiple programs could run at once. 80386SX –100 pin chip. –Internally the same as a 80386DX, externally had 24-bit address and 16-bit data bus.
Third Generation (P3) Other Flavours of 80386 –80386SL: used in laptops, had lower (L) power consumption. Had external 32-bit address bus like DX, but external 16-bit data bus like SX. –AM80386SX and DX: AMD manufactured clone. SX was like the SL.
Fourth Generation (P4) 80486DX: –168 pin –Included math coprocessor –synchronous with main processor and executes in fewer cycles than previous math coprocessors 8KB Level 1 memory cache –90-95% zero wait states Reduced instruction-execution time –average of two clock cycles per instruction compared to previous of more than four clock cycles needed Burst-mode memory cycles
Fourth Generation (P4) Other Flavours of 80486: –80486SX: same as DX except there is no coprocessor. Companion coprocessor - 80487 –80486DX2: the processor’s internal speed is doubled. –80486DX4: the processor’s internal speed is tripled. –CX486SLC: Cyrix processor that is basically a 386SX. –CX486DLC:Cyrix processor that is 486DX. –CX486DRU2:Cyrix processor that is 486DX2.
Fourth Generation (P4) AMD 486 (5x86) 486 that runs at 133MHz Some 486 motherboards support this chip Similar to Pentium 75 –AMD A80486DX2-80SV8B (40MHz x 2) –AMD A80486DX4-100SV8B (33MHz x 3) –AMD A80486DX4-120SV8B (40MHx x 3)
Fifth Generation (P5) 64-bit data bus –2 separate 8KB internal caches, 1 for instructions, 1 for data –superscalar microprocessor, runs multiple instructions simultaneously achieved by pipelining –Pipelining breaks instruction cycle into small stages. Each stage is capable of handling many instructions. –Two pipelines in pentium, u-pipe and v-pipe –Each pipeline has its own ALU
Pipelining Fetching and execution of each instruction is split into many stages, all working in parallel. This allows the processing of up to five instructions to be overlapped.
Pipelining In 8085 there was no pipelining. 8086 had enjoyed the first pipelining. In the 486 the pipeline stage is broken down even further, to 5 stages as follows: –1. fetch (prefetch) –2. decode 1 (two stage decode) –3. decode 2 –4. execute –5. register write-back (result goes to EAX)
heavily pipelining By heavily pipelining the fetching and execution of instructions, many 486 instructions are executed in only 1 clock cycle instead of in 3 clocks as in the 386.
Fifth Generation (P5) Pentium First Generation: –273 pin package –60 & 66 MHz (same speed as motherboard) –Same voltage as motherboard Pentium Second Generation: –296 pin package –uses 3.3V –90/100/75120/133/150/166/200 MHz –could run simultaneously with second processor Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP)
Fifth Generation (P5) Pentium MMX: –Pentium Third Generation –Level 1 cache increased from 16 KB to 32 KB –External level 2 cache typically 256KB or 512KB –Addition of 57 instructions related to multimedia and communication processing. –Available in 166/200/266 MHz clock speeds. –Requires different voltage level 3.3V for I/O 2.8V for core
