  author={S. Kimura and Y. Komoto and Y. Yano},
  journal={IEEE Micro},
A description is given of the V60/V70, the first commercially based, general-purpose 32-bit microprocessor in Japan. Its functions include on-chip floating-point operations, a high-level-language-oriented architecture, software debugging support, and support functions to promote a high level of system reliability. Because high reliability is so important, the V60/V70 contains functional redundancy monitoring (FRM) support functions. The discussion covers the overall design considerations…

A 6.7-MFLOPS floating-point coprocessor with vector/matrix instructions
An 80-bit floating-point coprocessor which implements 24 vector/matrix instructions and 22 mathematical functions is described and the performance of 6.7 MFLOPS in the vector-matrix multiplication at 20 MHz has been attained by the use of parallel operations.
A concurrent fault detection method for superscalar processors
The authors describe a method for the concurrent detection of faults in instruction level parallel (ILP) processors. This method makes use of the No Operation (NOP) instruction's slots that sometimes
Design methodologies and CAD tools
It will be stressed that the suppression of abstraction levels in a design methodology will lead to conceptually simple methodologies and the corresponding CAD tools will be more efficient.
