Processor Cores and Architecture Design
The chapter describes the techniques to design the architecture and micro-architecture for the processor. The case study is created to develop the thought process to evolve the architecture of the pipelined processor. Most of the times, we need to have the processors in the SOC designs. For the complex designs, the processor IP cores can be used. The chapter’s main objective is to develop the thought process of the engineers while sketching the architectures and micro-architectures for the processors. This can be helpful to design the products to implement and new ideas. The chapter is useful to understand the hard IP cores during SOC prototyping.
