Functional Verification of a Multiple-issue, Pipelined, Superscalar Alpha Processor - the Alpha 21164 CPU Chip


Digital's Alpha 21164 processor is a complex quad-issue, pipelined, superscalar implementation of the Alpha architecture. Functional verification was performed on the logic design and the PALcode interface. The simulation-based verification effort used implementation-directed, pseudorandom exercisers, supplemented with implementation-specific, hand… (More)
