Consider the following data path diagram. Consider an instruction: $R0 \leftarrow R1 +R2$. The following steps are used to execute it over the given data path. Assume that PC is incremented appropriately. The subscripts $r$ and $w$ ... of execution of the above steps? $2,1,4,5,3$ $1,2,4,3,5$ $3,5,2,1,4$ $3,5,1,2,4$

In Single bus Architecture for a simple add operation ,we know there are 8 cycles required, where 1st three for Fetch cycle and Others are for execution cycle Steps Action 1. $PC_{out},MAR_{in},Read, Clear-Y,Set Carry Into ALU,Add,Z_{in}$ ... instruction for T? 3) Question is only asking clock cycles for execution cycle. Then why we are considering Fetch and Execution cycles in our answer?

An $8-bit$ data path is to be set up using two $4-bit$ ALU's and suitable multiplexers. The ALU's accept two operands $A$ and $B$ on which a total of $16$ operations can be performed. The operand $A$ is from one of two register-arrays each ... placed on a bus. List the data path control signals, and estimate the minimum width of a signal microcode word needed for the generation of these signals.

The ALU, the bus and all the registers in the data path are of identical size. All operations including incrementation of the PC and the GPRs are to be carried out in the ALU. Two clock cycles are needed for memory read operation - the first one for loading address in the MAR ... $2$ $3$ $4$ $5$

Suppose the functions $F$ and $G$ can be computed in $5$ and $3$ nanoseconds by functional units $U_{F}$ and $U_{G}$, respectively. Given two instances of $U_{F}$ and two instances of $U_{G}$, it is required to implement the computation $F(G(X_{i}))$ for $1 \leq i \leq 10$. Ignoring all other delays, the minimum time required to complete this computation is ____________ nanoseconds.
Consider the following data path of a CPU. The ALU, the bus and all the registers in the data path are of identical size.
