Two methods are used to design the control unit of a processor. The first is the hardwire method, in which each machine instruction is applied directly to an array of decoders. These decoders will then generate the timing and control signals required to implement the machine instruction. The complete structure of the decoder array must be determined during(More)
The design of a host machine architecture for implementing an existing image machine architecture is considered. The proposed microarchitecture uses a microprogrammed control unit to emulate the Motorola MC6809 microprocessor architecture. The detailed hardware characteristics of the proposed machine are described and the microinstruction set is defined.(More)
