Pipelining A technique used in advanced microprocessors where the microprocessor begins executing a second instruction before the first has been completed. - A Pipeline is a series of stages, where some work is done at each stage. The work is not finished until it has passed through all stages. With pipelining, the computer architecture allows the next instructions to be fetched while the processor is performing arithmetic operations, holding them in a buffer close to the processor until each instruction operation can performed.

How it works The pipeline is divided into segments and each segment can execute it operation concurrently with the other segments. Once a segment completes an operations, it passes the result to the next segment in the pipeline and fetches the next operations from the preceding segment

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
