Physical design implementation of RISC Processor Subsystem
A reduced instruction set is a set of instructions, which causes the microprocessor of a computer to have lesser cycles per instruction (CPI) than a Complex Instruction Set Computer (CISC). Reduced instruction set computer’s (RISC) most distinguish feature is that the instruction set is designed for a very regular flow of pipeline instruction. Another common feature of RISC is its load/store architecture in which memory is loaded by specific instructions instead of as part of most instructions. The design components regarding the RISC subsystem with their geometric representations are instantiated during physical design flow. Physical design flow is implemented with all the stages namely floorplan, placement, Clock Tree Synthesis (CTS), Routing and signoff is implemented in 14nm technology.
