VLIW stands for
Explanation: It is the architecture designed to perform multiple operations in parallel.
The important feature of the VLIW is _______
Explanation: ILP stands for Instruction Level Parallelism.
The main difference between the VLIW and the other approaches to improve performance is
Explanation: The Pipe-lining and super-scalar architectures involved the usage of complex hardware circuits for the implementation.
In VLIW the decision for the order of execution of the instructions depends on the program itself.
Explanation: In other words the order of execution of instructions has nothing to do with the physical hardware implementation of the system.
The parallel execution of operations in VLIW is done according to the schedule determined by _____
Explanation: The compiler first checks the code for inter dependencies and then determines the schedule for its execution.
The VLIW processors are much simpler as they don not require of _____
Explanation: As the compiler only decides the schedule of execution the scheduler is not required here.
The VLIW architecture follows _____ approach to achieve parallelism.
Explanation: The MIMD stands for Multiple Instructions Multiple Data.
The following instruction is allowed in VLIW:
f12 = f0 * f4, f8 = f8 + f12, f0 = dm(i0, m3), f4 = pm(i8, m9);
Explanation: The above mentioned instruction is a complex 48 bit instruction used to perform operations on floating numbers.
To compute the direction of the branch the VLIW uses _____
EPIC stands for
