Performance gain from data and control dependency elimination in embedded processors

  title={Performance gain from data and control dependency elimination in embedded processors},

  journal={2010 9th International Symposium on Electronics and Telecommunications},
This paper presents a way of increasing overall performance in embedded processors by introducing a multithreading interleaved execution model that can be applied to any Instruction Set Architecture. Usual acceleration techniques as superpipeline or branch prediction are not suited for embedded machines due to their inherent inefficiency. We will show that by removing dependencies within a processor and thus eliminating the need for extra hardware required for keeping the overall coherence… CONTINUE READING
