Abstract
A single­chip fixed­point vector microprocessor is described. The chip contains
a MIPS­II RISC core with a 1 KB instruction cache, dual eight­way parallel
vector arithmetic pipelines, a 128­bit memory interface, and an 8­bit serial host
interface. Each vector arithmetic pipeline contains a cascade of six functional
units that can be dynamically reconfigured by each instruction. The resulting
peak performance is 4.3 billion 32­bit arithmetic operations per second at a
clock speed of 45 MHz.
