To design a new processor or to modify an existing one, designers need to gather data to estimate the influence of specific architecture features on the performance of the <i>proposed machine</i> (PM). To obtain this data, it is necessary to measure on an <i>existing machine</i> (EM) the dynamic behavior of <i>typical programs</i>. Traditionally,(More)
The use of registers in a processor reduces the data and instruction memory traffic. Since this reduction is a significant factor in the improvement of the program execution time, recent VLSI processors have a large number of registers which can be used efficiently because of the advances in compiler technology. However, since registers have to be(More)
