Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0046704A2] A configurable RISC processor implements a user-definable instruction set with high performance fixed and variable length encoding. The process of defining new instruction sets is supported by tools that allow the user to add new instructions and rapidly evaluate them, to maintain multiple instruction sets & to easily switch between them. A standardized language is used to develop configurable definitions of target instructions sets, HDL descriptions of hardware needed to implement the instruction set, and development tools for verification and application development, thus enabling a high degree of automation in the design process.
