Abstract:

The basic principles of operation of pipelining in computer systems are examined and a comprehensive theory of pipeline systems is presented. A classification scheme for the pipeline systems is proposed and investigated. Present practice of computers, employing pipelining, is reviewed and directions for future practice are suggested. Simulation results are given for a simple proposed pipeline system, incorporating the developed theory. Pipeline systems are compared with other competing systems to judge the future of these systems. A pipeline computer system is a problem dependent method using concurrent processing of independent tasks in a stream of jobs by independent functional units. Author
