With advances in VLSI technology, it is now possible to implement vector processors on a single chip. Vector architectures are ideal for providing the cost-effective, real-time performance demanded by graphic-intensive applications such as MPEG players and video conferencing software. However, these vector microprocessors lack compilers and instead rely on(More)
Increasingly wider superscalar processors are experiencing diminishing performance returns while requiring larger portions of die area dedicated to control rather than datapath. As an alternative to using these processors to exploit parallelism effectively, we are investigating the viability of using single-chip vector microprocessors. This paper presents(More)
