The Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) Project investigates an alternatrve to the general trend toward computers wrth increasingly complex instruction sets: With a proper set of instructions and a corresponding architectural design, a machine wrth a high effective throughput can be achieved. The simplicity of the instruction set and addressing modes allows most Instructions to execute in a single machine cycle, and the srmplicity of each instruction guarantees a short cycle time.
