Rethinking Instruction-Set Design for Energy-Efficient Computing

Abstract

Although the RISC revolution improved the regularity of instruction sets, and improvements in manufacturing moved floating-point arithmetic operations from software to co-processors to processor cores, the basic semantics of arithmetic operations have remained largely unchanged since the origins of the microprocessor. We have been exploring the possibility… (More)
