1. Microprogramming History -- Mark Smotherman
Summary microprogramming is a technique to implement the control logic necessary to execute instructions within a processor.
A Brief History of Microprogramming
Mark Smotherman
Last updated: October 2005 Summary: Microprogramming is a technique to implement the control logic necessary to execute instructions within a processor. It relies on fetching low-level microinstructions from a control store and deriving the appropriate control signals as well as microprogram sequencing information from each microinstruction.
Definitions and Example
Although loose usage has sometimes equated the term "microprogramming" with the idea of "programming a microcomputer", this is not the standard definition. Rather, microprogramming is a systematic technique for implementing the control logic of a computer's central processing unit. It is a form of stored-program logic that substitutes for hardwired control circuitry. The central processing unit in a computer system is composed of a data path and a control unit . The data path includes registers, function units such as ALUs (arithmetic and logic units) and shifters, interface units for main memory and/or I/O busses, and internal processor busses. The control unit governs the series of steps taken by the data path during the execution of a user-visible instruction, or macroinstruction (e.g., load, add, store).

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Microprogramming (i.e. writing microcode ) is a method that can be employed to implement machine instructions in a CPU relatively easily, often using less hardware than with other methods. It is a set of very detailed and rudimentary lowest-level routines which controls and sequences the actions needed to execute (perform) particular instructions, sometimes also to decode (interpret) them. A machine instruction implemented by a series of microinstructions is thus loosely comparable to how an interpreter implements a high-level language statement using a series of machine instructions. The microcode is normally written by the CPU engineer during the design phase. It is generally not meant to be visible or changeable by a normal programmer, not even an assembly programmer, one of the reasons being that microcode (by design) can be dramatically changed with a new microarchitecture generation. Machine code often retains backwards compatibility . Microcode has often been used to let one microarchitecture emulate another, usually more powerful, architecture.

Earlham College
The purpose of this lab is to give you a chance to explore microprogramming and how the microprogram interacts with the hardware to implement a conventional machine language interpreter. Such simulators are used in the development of real microcode, and this lab is designed to give you a feel for what it is like to write (and debug) true machine language. Using the Mic-1 control store which I have entered (but not thoroughly tested), do each of the following and demonstrate it for your neighbor:
  • Enter an instruction at address 2000(hex) in conventional memory. Use the Mac-1 instruction set (Fig. 4-14 on page 185) and pick an instruction that interests you. Clear the registers and step through the microcode by clock sub-cycle and watch carefully to see what's happening both in the hardware animation window, and in the microcode window. Does the instruction do exactly what you expected? Is it correct?
  • Pick 8 sequential lines from the microprogram. Examine them carefully to see if they are identical (in description) to the corresponding lines in the text (Fig. 4-16, page 190-191). Now, check to see if each of them exacly implements the correct hardware functions. Note that Oddone has eliminated the TIR register (I have used A), and I have assumed that the X12 and Low8 registers have been pre-loaded with the AMASK and SMASK constants (0FFF and 00FF, respectively).

    1. Basis Concepts
    • Micro-operations: We have already seen that the programs are executed as a sequence of instructions, each instruction consists of a series of steps that make up the instruction cycle fetch, decode, etc. Each of these steps are, in turn, made up of a smaller series of steps called micro-operations. Micro-operation execution: Each step of the instruction cycle can be decomposed into micro-operation primitives that are performed in a precise time sequence. Each micro-operation is initiated and controlled based on the use of control signals / lines coming from the control unit.
    - Controller the data to move from one register to another - Controller the activate specific ALU functions
    • Micro-instruction: Each instruction of the processor is translated into a sequence of lower-level micro-instructions. The process of translation and execution are to as microprogramming

    [Abstract] [ Overview New Technologies Bibliography
    Abstract: The microprogram is the essential part of the computer which allows the interaction between hardware and software. In many processors, the microprogram executes machine code instructions directly on the hardware, providing a final level of interpretation between machine language instructions and the basic memory and arithmetic operations performed by the hardware. However, some new architectures do not implement a microprogram. Instead, operations in the digital logic level are run directly by software. In this project, I will examine microprogramming in terms of its role as the intersection of hardware and software, and in doing so, compare and contrast microinstruction-rich and microinstruction-deficient architectures, and examine various new approaches to hardware/software interaction.

    Mic1 Microprogramming Simulator
    As explained in the documentation file, this software simulates the execution of microprograms based on the example machine given in Ch. 4 of Andrew S. Tanenbaum's Structured Computer Organization , 3rd ed. (Prentice-Hall, 1990). Note that his memory-mapped I/O is not supported by the simulator and that the range of memory addresses handled is much more limited that what is used in his text. The simulator gives a visual display of what happens in each subcycle (or cycle, etc.) of the microprogram. This can be useful in introducing students to microprogramming, since it is something that they cannot usually try in practice. With Mic1, students (or the instructor) can run small test microprograms, or even Tanenbaum's Mic-1 microprogram which interprets Mac-1 programs. (Mac-1 refers to his example conventional machine level. Note that Tanenbaum's microprogram interpreter has been modified to handle a Mac-1 HALT instruction.) The Mic1 simulator and associated sample programs are made available as freeware. The latest version of the Mic1 microprogramming simulator runs under most versions of Windows. It was directly tested on Windows 95 and Windows 2000.

    Moore Machine Figure 12.1 gives a Moore state diagram for implementing the simple CPU. Figure 12.2 showed the waveforms for the memory interface, to demonstrate the correct execution of a memory read operation in the instruction fetch states. Repeat this analysis for the state sequence OD, ST0, ST1, IF0 to verify that the interface signals correctly handle a memory write operation. Draw a timing diagram similar to Figure 12.2 labeled by the current state and including the waveforms for the memory address bus, memory databus, request, and read/write signals. Annotate the waveform with comments about the arrival of the appropriate data in the MAR and MBR registers.
    Synchronous Mealy Machine Section 12.1.2 described a strategy for constructing a synchronous Mealy machine by placing flip-flops between the inputs and the next-state logic. Assume that the state diagram of Figure 11.23 has been implemented as a synchronous Mealy machine in which the memory Wait signal is delayed by a synchronizing flip-flop. Verify that the memory interface operates correctly by drawing timing diagrams for all control signals asserted by the instruction fetch states. Include in your diagram the Wait signal as it leaves the memory subsystem and Wait as it is delayed by the synchronizing flip-flop.

    Microinstruction Fields
    This is essentially the name of the line of microcode. You can choose anything you'd like. The label is useful for branching and jumping. For example, if you had a line called , you would use that name anytime you wanted to branch or jump to that line.
    ALU Ctrl
    This specifies the operation the ALU should do. The choices are add subtract , and func . The func operation is something you would rarely use. It is primarily there for the implementation of R-format instructions, where the ALU would use the function bits within that instruction to determine which operation to use.
    SRC1 and SRC2
    These refer to the sources of the two multiplexors that choose the inputs to the ALU. The ALU computation will use and as its operands. Please refer to the microprogrammed datapath as you read the following explanations.
