Unformatted text preview: straightforward, but how are they used? Are they: (1) programmable units (like the stream pro-cessors) with a (possibly secret) instruction set of their own, (2) functional units (like oating-point ALUs) which are used using stream-processor instructions, (3) state machines that are operated using special control registers (like DMA controllers), (4) just subroutines that run on stream pro-cessors using ordinary stream processor instructions (like system calls or library functions), or (5) something else.
