As the complexity of embedded systems, as well as the range of applications, grows, the demand for low power high-performance systems also increases. Solutions to address these issues have been presented in the literature, addressing techniques to increase performance by replacing software features, namely RTOS primitives, by hardware implementations.

This paper presents a micro-architectural feature in a processor's datapath to support the C language's runtime environment. A hardware accelerator for C function calls was embedded in a processor core and its impact on area and performance was evaluated. Results show that the accelerator offers a performance improvement in several different processor(More)
