Organization is how features are implemented ²Control signals. memory technology. will instruction be implemented by a multiply unit or is it done by repeated addition? . ²e.g. interfaces. ²e. addressing techniques.Architecture & Organization 1 Architecture is those attributes visible to the programmer ²Instruction set.g.
.Function of Microprocessor ? A microprocessor incorporates most or all of the functions of a computer's central processing unit (CPU) on a single integrated circuit (IC. or microchip).
Architecture & Organization 2 All Intel x86 family share the same basic architecture The IBM System/370 family share the same basic architecture This gives code compatibility ²At least backwards Organization differs between different versions .
Structure & Function Structure is the way in which components relate to each other Function is the operation of individual components as part of the structure .
Function All computer functions are: ²Data processing ²Data storage All computer must has the capability of a storage device for the external environment eitherbeing written to or had from Move data between itself & outside world Computer act either as some/destination ²Data movement ²Control .

Performance Balance Processor speed increased Memory capacity increased Memory speed lags behind processor speed .
Logic and Memory Performance Gap .
Solutions Increase number of bits retrieved at one time ²Make DRAM ³wider´ rather than ³deeper´ Change DRAM interface ²Include cache Reduce frequency of memory access ²More complex cache and cache on chip Increase interconnection bandwidth ²High speed buses ²Hierarchy of buses .
Approaches to increase processor speed Increase hardware speed of processor ²Fundamentally due to shrinking logic gate size ± More gates. packed more tightly. increasing clock rate ± Propagation time for signals reduced Increase size and speed of caches ²Dedicating part of processor chip ± Cache access times drop significantly Change processor organization and architecture ²Increase effective speed of execution ²Parallelism .
increasing resistance ² Wires closer together.Problems from Clock Speed and Logic Density Power ² Power density increases with density of logic and clock speed ² Dissipating heat RC delay ² Speed at which electrons flow limited by resistance and capacitance of metal wires connecting them ² Delay increases as RC product increases ² Wire interconnects thinner. increasing capacitance Memory latency ² Memory speeds lag processor speeds Solution: ² More emphasis on organizational and architectural approaches to improve performance .
Intel Microprocessor Performance .
Strategies to increase performance Strategy 1: Increased Cache Capacity ²Typically two or three levels of cache between processor and main memory ²Chip density increased ± More cache memory on chip +Faster cache access ²Pentium chip devoted about 10% of chip area to cache ²Pentium 4 devotes about 50% .
cont Strategy 2: More Complex Execution Logic ²Enable parallel execution of instructions ²Pipeline works like assembly line ± Different stages of execution of different instructions at same time along pipeline ²Superscalar allows multiple pipelines within single processor ± Instructions that do not depend on one another can be executed in parallel .Strategies to increase performance .
Diminishing Returns Internal organization of processors is exceedingly complex ²Further increases in this direction is small Benefits from cache are reaching limit Increasing clock rate runs into power dissipation problem ²Some fundamental physical limits are being reached .
increase in performance proportional to square root of increase in complexity If software can use multiple processors. doubling number of processors almost doubles performance So. use two simpler processors on the chip rather than one more complex processor With two processors.New Approach ² Multiple Cores Multiple processors on single chip ² With large shared cache Within a processor. larger caches are justified ² Power consumption of memory logic less than processing logic Example: IBM POWER4 ² Two cores based on PowerPC .
