Hardwired Control in Computer Organization
- To execute instructions, the processor must have some means of generating the control signals needed in the proper sequence.
- Two categories: hardwired control and microprogrammed control
- The hardwired system can operate at high speed, but with little flexibility.
Control Unit Organization
- Zin = T1 + T6 • ADD + T4 • BR + …
- End = T7 • ADD + T5 • BR + (T5 • N + T4 • N) • BRN +…
