Unformatted text preview: LSU EE 4720 Homework 1 Due: 3 March 2010 Problem 1: Re-write each code fragment below so that it uses fewer instructions (but still does the same thing). # Fragment 1 lw r1, 0(r2) addi r2, r2, 4 lw r3, 0(r2) addi r2, r2, 4 # Fragment 2 slt r1, r2, r3 blt r1, r0 TARG add r4, r5, r6 # Fragment 3 ori r1, r0, 0x1234 sll r1, r1, 16 ori r1, r1, 0x5678 1 Problem 2: The MIPS code below runs on the illustrated implementation. Assume that the number of iterations is very large. 29:26 25:0 IF + 29:0 = ID 15:0 NPC ME NPC 25:21 20:16 Addr Data Addr Data rtv D In WB ALU rsv Addr +1 EX ALU Mem Port Addr PC 30 15:0 rtv format immed dst MD 01 IMM Decode dest. reg 2’b0 2 Data Data Out In Addr Mem Port Data Out dst dst IR LOOP: lw r3, 0(r1) addi r2, r2, 1 beq r3, r4 LOOP lw r1, 4(r1) (a) Show a pipeline execution diagram with enough iterations to determine the CPI. (b) Determine the CPI. (c) Schedule (re-arrange) the code to remove as many stalls as possible. Problem 3: The MIPS implementation below has three multiplexors in the EX stage. (a) Write a program that executes without stalls and which uses the eight ALU multiplexer inputs in order (perhaps starting at cycle 3) in consecutive cycles. That is, in cycle 3 the top input of the upper ALU mux would be used, (bypass from memory), in cycle 4 the second one would be used (NPC), in cycle 5 rsv, in cycle 6 bypass from WB, in cycle 7 we switch to the lower ALU mux with the bypass from ME input, in cycle 8 rtv, etc. (b) Explain why it would be impossible to use the EX-stage rtv mux inputs in order in consecutive cycles. 2 ...
