Multimicroprocessor systems As we all know a single processor system has an upper limit of its processing capability. A system having two microprocessor will require only lesser time to complete the task. The study of a system, involving several connected microprocessors, using a certain topology to further enhance the speed of operation is called Multimicroprocessor Architecture.
Perform complicated numeric calculation in comparatively less time. Works in coherence with the main processor. String processing. They are Unable to fetch the code from the memory so they work under the control of main processor. Both microprocessor and coprocessor can execute their respective instructions simultaneously and concurrently.
Intel Numeric Processor. Packed in 40 pin ceramic DIP package. It adds 68 new instruction to the instruction set of How it works : The instruction may lie interleaved in the program, but it. Operation of does not require any software support from the system software or operating system. Control Unit : Function : It interface the coprocessor to the microprocessor system data bus.
Monitors the instruction stream. If the instruction is an ESCape coprocessor instruction, the coprocessor executes it; if not the microprocessor executes it. It receives , decodes instructions, read and write memory operands and executes the instruction.
Instruction either address data in specific stack data register or uses push and pop mechanism to store and retrieve data. Microcode control unit : It generates the control signals required for the execution of instruction.
The internal data bus is 84 bits wide including 68 bit fraction, 15 bit exponent and a sign bit. Indicates the current register addressed as the top-of-the stack ST. Normally register 0. Indicates a non zero result that is too small to represent with the current precision selected.
Flag indicates errors such as those produced by taking the square root of negative number. Selects either affine allows positive and negative infinity or projective assumes infinity is unsigned. Determine whether the error indicated by the exception affects the error bit in the status flag. Exception is generated if at least one of the operand or the result is denormalized. These function in a similar way to the corresponding pins of These enable to keep track of the instruction prefetch queue status of the CPU, to maintain synchronism with it.
No operation. First byte of opcode from queue Empty Queue Subsequent byte from queue. Used to indicate that an unmasked exception has been received during execution. This is usually handled by A.
Used to inform the coprocessor that the address device will complete the data transfer from its side and the bus is likely to be free for the next bus cycle. Usually this is synchronized by the clock generator Used to abandon the internal activities of the coprocessor and prepare it for further execution.
The waits for the grant pulse from the host. In maximum mode all the control signals are derived using a separate chip known as a bus controller. Instruction set of The execution of instruction is transparent to the programmer.
The instructions are fetched by but are executed by Whenever the comes across instruction, it executes the ESCAPE instruction code to pass over the instruction op-code and control of the local bus to After execution the result is referred back. Data transfer Instructions. Coprocessor Control Operations. Floating Point Data Transfer 1. FLD Load real to top of Stack This instruction loads a real operand to the top of stack of the 80 bit register. Integer data transfer Instruction : 1 FILD Load integer to stack top This instruction loads the specified integer data operand to the top of stack.
The content of ST and ST 1 should follow the inequality. Result is stored back at the top of the stack. Comparison Instruction All the comparison instructions compare the operands and modify the condition code flags. The content of the top of stack is compared either with the content of a memory location or with the content of another stack register.

The Intel , announced in , was the first x87 floating-point coprocessor for the line of microprocessors. The purpose of the was to speed up computations for floating-point arithmetic, such as addition , subtraction , multiplication , division , and square root. It also computed transcendental functions such as exponential , logarithmic or trigonometric calculations, and besides floating-point it could also operate on large binary and decimal integers. The was an advanced IC for its time, pushing the limits of manufacturing technology of the period. Initial yields were extremely low. Due to a shortage of chips, IBM did not actually offer the as an option for the PC until it had been on the market for six months. Development of the led to the IEEE standard for floating-point arithmetic.
