Preparation for Midterm Binary Data Storage (integer, char, float pt) and Operations, Logic, Flip Flops, Switch Debouncing, Timing, Synchronous / Asynchronous Circuits, Memory Organization, Finite State Machines (FSM) RISC / CISC Computers, MIPS Organization, MIPS Instructions, MIPS Addressing, MIPS Frames / Context Switching, MIPS Assembly/Machine Programming Hamming Code Developing MIPS Datapaths, MIPS FSM Implementations, and Alternative Microprogramming
Preparation for Midterm Midterm Questions/Problems will attempt to evaluate understanding of concepts and ability to use them, e.g. in design. Review Class Slides – use them to test your understanding. Review HW assignments and Projects. Midterm will be Closed Book, Open Minds. Understand material on MIPS Reference Data Card. Bring it with you for the midterm. Midterm will be designed to take approximately ½ of the period. You will have the entire period as needed.

Implementing the Multiple Clock Cycle Machine The Multiple Cycle Machine cannot be implemented simply as combinational logic. Why? Because each instruction requires 3 -5 states (clock cycles) to complete. It will require a Finite State machine (FSM). A set of states. How many? Combinational logic for control signals. Combinational logic for next state inputs. It can be implemented with a PLA(s).

An alternative to a FSM implementation. Most Computers today are at least partially implemented with Micro-program control The concept is to build a simpler internal computer (micro-computer) that implements the control sequences (micro-instructions) that are stored in a micro-computer memory (ROM) The advantage is ease of design, flexibility, and adaptability to “families of computers”. Particularly useful in CICS Machine Implementation. Micro-Programmed Control
Control Unit Organization Tasks of Control Unit: Microinstruction sequencing Microinstruction execution The Control Memory contains sequences of microinstructions that provide the control signals to execute instruction cycles, e.g. Fetch, Indirect, Execute, and Interrupt.
Vertical Micro-programming Word width can be much narrower Control signals encoded into function codes – need to be decoded More complex, more complicated to program, less flexibility More difficult to modify Slower
Next Address Decision ? Like a normal computer, we want to allow branches. Why? Target address depends upon “ALU flags” and control buffer register bits: Get next instruction –Add 1 to control address register Jump to machine instruction routine –Load control address register based on opcode in IR Jump to other new routine based on jump microinstruction –Load address field of control buffer register into control address register
Branch Control: Two Address Fields Branch based upon: Instruction Opcode Address 1 Address 2 Does require a wide microinstruction, but no address calculation is needed
Branch Control: Single Address Field Branch based upon: Next instruction Address Opcode Does require more circuitry, e.g. adder
Branch Control: Variable Format One bit determines microinstruction format: Control signal format Branch format Does require even more circuitry, and is slowest.
Reflection on Microprogramming Control The advantage is ease of design, flexibility, and adaptability to “families of computers”. The disadvantage is speed. Particularly useful in CICS Machine implementation, since they have a lot of complex instructions and hence complex design requirements. One of the advantages of RISC machines is that they intrinsically simple and don’t need a lot of complex options and huge numbers of states to implement. In reality, our view of the MIPS RISC machine is distorted by the simplicity of the subset of the MIPS machine that we looked at.
