Sample text

Floating point or numeric coprocessors improve the performance of compute intensive applications, by allowing any floating point arithmetic to take place in parallel with the CPU. When the CPU detects a floating point instruction, the operands are passed to the coprocessor, which performs the arithmetic operation while the CPU proceeds with another activity. 8 Summary Computers store and manipulate information as n-bit words. An n-bit word can represent 2n different entities, such as characters and numbers.

If we now take B to logic 1, then S also goes to logic 1, while C remains at logic 0. 3(b). 3(c), is used as a building block for a more useful circuit called a full-adder. 4(a). It is a combinational logic circuit with three inputs, labelled A, B, Ci and two outputs, labelled S and Co. The circuit is used to find the sum S of a pair of binary digits, A and B. Co is 1 if a carryout is generated and is 0 otherwise. Ci or carry-in, is used to allow any carry generated by adding a previous pair of binary digits to be included in the sum.

IP is the Instruction Pointer. This is the name used by Intel in their processors, although Program Counter is a name commonly used for this register. A register is a memory location within the processor. A is the name we have given to a general purpose register within the processor. Such registers are sometimes referred to as accumulators. The Memory Address Register (MAR) holds data going on to the address bus. The Memory Buffer Register (MBR) holds data going to/from the data bus. IR is the Instruction Register.
