Understanding the Y86 Architecture and its Sequential Implementation Assigned: March 2, Due: Sunday, March 11, 11:59PM For this problem set, you may either work by yourself or in a group of two. If you choose to work in a group of two, then please make sure that you clearly identify both group members on each portion of your solution. 1. Textbook problem 4.32. Hand this one in on paper. 2. Textbook problem 4.33. Hand this one in on paper. 3. The two architecture lab questions contained in this handout. Hand these two in electronically. 1 The Y86 Architecture Lab In this problem, you will learn about the Y86 instruction set architecture, become familiar with its execution on the simulator, and modify the simulator to implement 2 new instructions. When you have completed the lab, you will have a deeper understanding of the architecture and its sequential implementation. 2 Getting started 1. Start by copying the file archlab-handout.tar , available from the link on the course home page, to a (protected) directory in which you plan to do your work. 2. Then give the command: tar xvf archlab-handout.tar . This will cause the following files to be unpacked into the directory: README , sim.tar , and simguide.pdf . 3. Next, give the command tar xvf sim.tar . This will create the directory sim , which contains your personal copy of the Y86 tools. You will be doing all of your work inside this directory. 1
