Horizontal microprogramming:

  1. does not require use of signal decoders
  2. results in larger sized microinstructions than vertical  microprogramming

Horizontal micro programming:

 1)  Each control signal itself  present in control word So no need of signal decoders, To represent one control  signal we need 1-bit  so A, C is true

 2)  In Vertical micro programming control word  contain log(no of control signals) bits to represent control signals.  

 Ex: suppose 16 control signals are there, In HmP  16 bits, in VmP  log16 = 4 bits are required

 so B is true   

 Finally Option D is Answer

In a C program, an array is declared as $\text{float} \ A[2048]$. Each array element is $4 \ \text{Bytes}$ in size, and the starting address of the array is $0x00000000$. This program is run on a computer that has a direct mapped data ... would occur? Justify your answer briefly. Assume that the data cache is initially empty and that no other data or instruction accesses are to be considered.
