This paper introduces the notion of a Flexible Instruction Processor (FIP) for systematic customisation of instruction processor design and implementation. The features of our approach include: (a) a modular framework based on \processor templates" that capture various instruction processor styles, such as stack-based or register-based styles; (b) enhancements of this framework to improve functionality and performance, such as hybrid processor templates and superscalar operation; (c… CONTINUE READING
