Summary: Torrent Architecture Manual
This manual contains the speci cation of the Torrent Instruction Set Architecture
ISA. Torrent is a vector ISA designed for digital signal processing applications.
Torrent is based on the 32-bit MIPS-II ISA, and this manual is intended to be read
as a supplement to the book "MIPS RISC Architecture" by Kane and Heinrich.
Torrent is the ISA of the T0 vector microprocessor which is described in the separate
"T0 Engineering Data" technical report.
Torrent Architecture Manual. Revision: 3.2. 1
Torrent is a vector processor instruction set ar-
chitecture ISA designed for digital signal pro-
cessing applications. The Torrent ISA allows for
a range of implementations performing di ering
numbers of operations per clock cycle, depending
