Executive Summary

Processor implementation and performance analysis are fundamental in computer architecture education. A processor can be described at different abstraction levels: a black box with inputs and outputs, the composition of RT (Register-Transfer) level components, the composition of gate level components, etc. Performance of a processor is impacted by factors such as clock cycle, programs, and components' propagation delays. With the traditional text-based educational material, teaching and learning of the processor implementation is difficult.
