ARM AND SHARC PROCESSORS PDF

Arm Holdings provides a list of vendors who implement ARM cores in their design application specific standard products ASSP , microprocessor and microcontrollers. At any moment in time, the CPU can be in only one mode, but it can switch modes due to external events interrupts or programmatically. FIQ mode: A privileged mode that is entered whenever the processor accepts a fast interrupt request. IRQ mode: A privileged mode that is entered whenever the processor accepts an interrupt. Abort mode: A privileged mode that is entered whenever a prefetch abort or data abort exception occurs. Undefined mode: A privileged mode that is entered whenever an undefined instruction exception occurs.

Arm Holdings provides a list of vendors who implement ARM cores in their design application specific standard products ASSP , microprocessor and microcontrollers. At any moment in time, the CPU can be in only one mode, but it can switch modes due to external events interrupts or programmatically. FIQ mode: A privileged mode that is entered whenever the processor accepts a fast interrupt request. IRQ mode: A privileged mode that is entered whenever the processor accepts an interrupt. Abort mode: A privileged mode that is entered whenever a prefetch abort or data abort exception occurs.

Undefined mode: A privileged mode that is entered whenever an undefined instruction exception occurs. System mode ARMv4 and above : The only privileged mode that is not entered by an exception. It can only be entered by executing an instruction that explicitly writes to the mode bits of the Current Program Status Register CPSR from another privileged mode not from user mode. Handler mode always uses MSP and works in privileged level.

Instruction set[ edit ] The original and subsequent ARM implementation was hardwired without microcode , like the much simpler 8-bit processor used in prior Acorn microcomputers. The bit ARM architecture and the bit architecture for the most part includes the following RISC features: No support for unaligned memory accesses in the original version of the architecture. Later, the Thumb instruction set added bit instructions and increased code density.

Mostly single clock-cycle execution. To compensate for the simpler design, compared with processors like the Intel and Motorola , some additional design features were used: Conditional execution of most instructions reduces branch overhead and compensates for the lack of a branch predictor in early chips.

Arithmetic instructions alter condition codes only when desired. Has powerful indexed addressing modes. A link register supports fast leaf function calls. A simple, but fast, 2-priority-level interrupt subsystem has switched register banks. Arithmetic instructions[ edit ] ARM includes integer arithmetic operations for add, subtract, and multiply; some versions of the architecture also support divide operations.

The instructions might not be implemented, or implemented only in the Thumb instruction set, or implemented in both the Thumb and ARM instruction sets, or implemented if the Virtualization Extensions are included.

ARM architecture

These original RISC designs were minimalist, including as few features or op-codes as possible and aiming to execute instructions at a rate of almost one instruction per clock cycle. This made them similar to the MIPS architecture in many ways, including the lack of instructions such as multiply or divide. According to the "Oracle SPARC Architecture " specification an "implementation may contain from 72 to general-purpose bit" registers. Each window has 8 local registers and shares 8 registers with each of the adjacent windows.

In addition to satisfying the demands of the most computationally intensive, real-time signal-processing applications, SHARC processors integrate large memory arrays and application-specific peripherals designed to simplify product development and reduce time to market. Irrespective of the specific product choice, all SHARC processors provide a common set of features and functionality useable across many signal processing markets and applications.
