Abstract:

The research investigates the relationships between the architecture of a computing system and various hardware designs which implement that architecture. A model of a central processor and a language for describing architecture is developed to study the manner in which architecture influences the data path design. Algorithms are then developed in order to determine the most appropriate data path for a specific performance or cost. The basic problem is that of formalizing the design of a digital computer and developing algorithms and procedures which can be used in optimizing the design of the central processing unit. A number of examples are presented which illustrate both the model of a computer and the programming implementations developed. Author
