March 2, 2005 A single-cycle MIPS processor 25 Summary datapath  contains all the functional units and  connections necessary to implement an instruction set architecture. — For our  single-cycle implementation , we use two  separate memories, an ALU, some extra adders, and lots of multiplexers. — MIPS is a 32-bit machine, so most of the buses  are 32-bits wide. The  control unit  tells the datapath what to do,

Unformatted text preview: based on the instruction thats currently being executed. Our processor has ten control signals that regulate the datapath. The control signals can be generated by a combinational circuit with the instructions 32-bit binary encoding as input. On Friday, well see the performance limitations of this single-cycle machine and try to improve upon it....
