This paper describes a novel processor architecture, the prioritized SMT architecture with the IPC control method, to guarantee the execution time of real-time threads. Based on priority set by a real-time scheduler, all hardware resources including cache systems, fetch, issue, and execution units, are controlled, so that our processor can execute multiple threads in real-time. All runnable threads are simultaneously executed as much as possible in priority order, so that the execution order… CONTINUE READING
