Overview The von Neumann Machine - The programmable digital computer (both program and data are stored in the computer memory) - Computer comprised of: processing unit, memory, control unit, input(s), and output(s) Introducing the LC-3 Computer - A “toy” computer for us to learn from: 16 bit machine, word addressable, 64K or 65,536 locations (Could it have an address space of 1 Gig? 1 Gig needs 30 bits of addressing) Computer Machine Instructions – Computer “native” instructions - The basic instructions that all programs use on that computer (The “atomic” unit of work done by a computer) The Instruction Cycle - The steps in the execution of a machine language instruction (Fetch, Decode, Evaluate Address(es), Fetch operand(s), Execute, and store results)
From Logic to Data Path • Data Paths The data path of a computer is all the logic used to process information. • See the data path of the LC-3 on next slide. • Combinational Logic • Decoders -- convert instructions into control signals • Multiplexers -- select inputs and outputs • ALU (Arithmetic and Logic Unit) -- operations on data • Sequential Logic • State machine -- coordinate control signals and data movement • Temporary (scratchpad) Memory • Registers and latches -- storage elements
LC-3 Data Path: Combinational Logic Storage State Machine
Computer Machine Instruction Formats • What is IN an instruction? • Specifies the operation to be performed • Where to get the operands • Where to put the result • What are the major instruction types? • Data Movement (load, store, etc.) • Operate (add, sub, mult,OR, AND, etc.) • Control (branch, jump to subroutine, etc.)
The Machine Instruction • Necessary information: • Operation code • Input Operand(s) • Output Operand(s) • Typical Operation formats: • 1 operand • 2 operands • 3 operands • Alternative Instruction Design Strategies • Cisc (Complex Instruction Set Architecture) • Risc (Reduced Instruction Set Architecture)
The LC-3 Instruction • FORMAT – generally 2 operand • Operation code • Input Operand(s) • Output Operand(s) • Where are the operands? • Memory • Registers
