Unformatted text preview: -bit extremum selections update
TRN0 and TRN1 based on the comparison of two
accumulators’ high words and low words.
TRN0 is updated based on the comparison of the
accumulators high words;
TRN1 is updated based on the comparison of the low words.
When performing a single 40-bit extremum selection the
selected transition register (TRN0 or TRN1) is updated
based on the comparison of two accumulators throughout
their 40 bits.
their TRN0 and TRN1 can hold transition decisions for the
path to new metrics in Viterbi algorithm
implementations. Copyrigh Temporary Registers (T0–T3) Four 16-bit general-purpose temporary
registers: T0–T3 can be used for:
registers: IEE, Slide 44 Hold one of the memory multiplicands for
multiply, multiply-and-accumulate, and multiplymultiply,
Hold the shift count used in addition, subtraction,
and load instructions performed in the D unit
Keep track of more pointer values by swapping
the contents of the auxiliary registers (AR0–AR7)
and the temporary registers (using a swap
Hold the transition metric of a Viterbi butterfly

ALU Copyrigh Registers Used to Address Data Space and
Auxiliary Registers (XAR0–XAR7 / AR0–AR7) The CPU includes eight extended auxiliary
registers Each high part ( ARnH) is used to specify the 7bit main data page for accesses to data space. Each low part ( ARn) can be used as: IEE, Slide 45 A 16-bit offset to the 7-bit main data page (to form a 23-bit
A bit address (in instructions that access individual bits or bit
A general-purpose register or counter

auxiliary register n are accessible via
dedicated instructions .
ARn is mapped to memory
XARn is not mapped to memory. ARnH high part of extended auxiliary register
n is Not individually accessible.
To access ARnH, you must access XARn.
To IEE, Slide 46 XAR0–XAR7 or AR0–AR7 are used in the
AR indirect addressing mode and the dual AR
indirect addressing mode.
Basic arithmetical, logical and shift operations
can be performed on AR0–AR7 in the A-unit
arithmetic logic unit (ALU).

an associated extension register, concatenate
the two form the extended CDP that is called
CDPH is used to specify the 7-bit main data
page for accesses to data space.
The low 16 bits part (CDP) can be used as: A 16-bit offset to the 7-bit main data page
(to form a 23-bit address)
(to A bit address (in instructions that access
individual bits or bit pairs)

accessible via dedicated instructions only.
XCDP is not a register mapped to memory.

(BSA01, BSA23, BSA45, BSA67, BSAC) IEE, Slide 49 The CPU includes five 16-bit circular buffer
start address registers
Each buffer start address register is
associated with a particular pointer
A buffer start address is added to the pointer
only when the pointer is configured for
circular addressing in status register ST2_55.

In the TMS320C54x-compatible mode
(C54CM = 1), BK03 is used for all the
auxiliary registers, and BK47 is not used.
auxiliary Copyrigh Data Page Register (XDP / DP) IEE, Slide 51 Data page register, DP, and associated
extension register DPH can be concatenated
to form an extended DP that is called XDP
The high part (DPH) is used to specify the 7bit main data page for accesses to data space.
The low part specifies a 16-bit offset (local
data page) that is concatenated with the main
data page to form a 23-bit address.
In the DP direct addressing mode, XDP
specifies a 23-bit address, and in the k16
