Computer Architecture and Data Manipulation Chapter 3 Von Neumann Architecture Todays stored-program computers have the following characteristics: Three hardware systems: A central processing unit (CPU) Arithmetic and Logic Unit (ALU)
Control Unit Registers A main memory system An I/O system The capacity to carry out sequential instruction processing. A single data path between the CPU and main memory.
CPU and main memory connected via a bus Stored Program Concept A program can be encoded as bit patterns and stored in main memory. From there, the CPU can then extract the instructions and execute them. In turn, the program to be executed can be altered easily. Terminology
Machine instruction: An instruction (or command) encoded as a bit pattern recognizable by the CPU Machine language: The set of all instructions recognized by a machine Machine Language Philosophies Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) Few, simple, efficient, and fast instructions Examples: PowerPC from Apple/IBM/Motorola
and SPARC from Sun Microsystems Complex Instruction Set Computing (CISC) Many, convenient, and powerful instructions Example: Pentium from Intel Machine Instruction Types Data Transfer: copy data from one location to another Arithmetic/Logic: use existing bit patterns to
compute a new bit patterns Control: direct the execution of the program Example - Adding values stored in memory Example - Dividing values stored in memory Program Execution Controlled by two special-purpose registers Program Counter: address of next instruction
Instruction Register: current instruction Machine Cycle Fetch Decode Execute The machine cycle Program Execution
Controlled by two special-purpose registers Program counter: address of next instruction Instruction register: current instruction Machine Cycle Fetch Decode Execute The architecture of the machine described in
Appendix C Start of the Fetch Execute cycle All of the instructions were fetched and executed as part of the machine cycle Performing the fetch step of the machine cycle Performing the fetch step of the machine cycle (contd)
Parts of a Machine Instruction Op-code: Specifies which operation to execute Operand: Gives more detailed information about the operation Interpretation of operand varies depending on opcode The composition of an instruction for the machine in Appendix C
3 means to store the contents of a register to memory From register 5 To memory address A7 Appendix C: A Simple Machine Language
A R0X B RXY C 000 D 0XY Operand Description LOAD reg. R from cell XY. LOAD reg. R with XY. STORE reg. R at XY. MOVE R to S.
ADD S and T into R. (2s comp.) ADD S and T into R. (floating pt.) OR S and T into R. AND S and T into R. XOR S and T into R. ROTATE reg. R X times. JUMP to XY if R = reg. 0. HALT. JUMP to XY always

Exercise Write a program that computes the opposite of the value in memory address FF E.g. if the value is +5 then it becomes -5 Communicating with Other Devices Controller: An intermediary apparatus that handles communication between the computer and a device Specialized controllers for each type of device
General purpose controllers (USB and FireWire) Port: The point at which a device connects to a computer Memory-mapped I/O: CPU communicates with peripheral devices as though they were memory cells Controllers attached to a machines bus A conceptual representation of memory-mapped I/O
Communicating with Other Devices (continued) Direct memory access (DMA): Main memory access by a controller over the bus Von Neumann Bottleneck: Insufficient bus speed impedes performance Handshaking: The process of coordinating the transfer of data between components
Communicating with Other Devices (continued) Parallel Communication: Several communication paths transfer bits simultaneously. Serial Communication: Bits are transferred one after the other over a single communication path.
Data Communication Rates Measurement units Bps: Bits per second Kbps: Kilo-bps (1,000 bps) Mbps: Mega-bps (1,000,000 bps) Gbps: Giga-bps (1,000,000,000 bps) Bandwidth: Maximum available rate
Increasing Performance Technologies to increase throughput: Faster clock speed Bigger word size Larger cache memory Pipelining: Overlap steps of the machine cycle Pipelining Why not start fetching the next instruction while were decoding the current instruction?

MIMD: Different programs, different data Dual core, quad core SIMD: Same program, different data SSE, MMX
