Multi-Cycle Data path and Control

Overview :Multi-cycle data path break up instructions into separate steps. It reduces average instruction time. Each step takes a single clock cycle Each functional unit can be used more than once in an instruction, as long as it is used in different clock cycles. It reduces the amount of hardware needed.  (I) Fetch Instruction :An […]

Cache Memory Performance

Types of Caches :L1 Cache : Cache built in the CPU itself is known as L1 or Level 1 cache. This type of cache holds most recent data so when, the data is required again so the microprocessor inspects this cache first so it does not need to go through main memory or Level 2 […]
