VLSI Design of a 16-Bit RISC Vector Processor for Computing Applications
In this paper, the authors include the designing of 16-bit RISC processor and modeling of its components using VHDL. The implementation strategies have been borrowed from most popular MIPS architecture up to certain extent. The instruction set adopted here is extremely simple that gives an insight into the kind of hardware which should be able to execute the set of instructions properly. Along with sequential and combinational building blocks of non-pipelined processor such as adders and registers more complex blocks i.e. ALU and Memories had been designed and simulated.
