Tms320C6X Architecture

  1. 1. TMS320C6x ARCHITECTURE • The TMS320C6711 is a floating-point processor based on the • VLIW architecture . • Internal memory includes a two-level cache architecture with 4kB of level 1 program cache (L1P), 4kB of level 1 data cache (L1D), and 64kB of RAM or level 2 cache for data/program allocation (L2). • It has a direct interface to both synchronous memories and asynchronous memories •
  2. 2. • On-chip peripherals include two multichannel buffered serial ports (McBSPs),two timers, a 16-bit host port interface (HPI), and a 32-bit external memory interface (EMIF). • It requires 3.3V for I/O and 1.8V for the core (internal). • Internal buses – 32-bit program address bus – 256-bit program data bus (eight 32-bit instructions), – two 32-bit data address buses, – two 64-bit data buses – two 64-bit store data buses. • With a 32-bit address bus, the total memory space is 2^32 • = 4GB, including four external memory spaces: CE0, CE1, CE2, and CE3.
  3. 3. 3-Access level of Memory Map 1. L1 Memory -Cache-based Architecture -Program Cache & Data Cache -Size : PC(4Kbyte), DC(4Kbyte) 2. L2 Memory - Size : 64Kbyte - Program & Data 3. L3 Memory External Memory
  4. 4. Internal Memory
  5. 5. • Independent memory banks on the C6x allow for two memory accesses within one instruction cycle. • Two independent memory banks can be accessed using two independent buses. • Two loads or two stores instructions can be performed in parallel. • No conflict results if the data accessed are in different memory banks. • Separate buses for program, data, and direct memory access (DMA) allow the C6x to perform concurrent program fetches, data read and write, and DMA operations.
  6. 6. • C6x has a byte-addressable memory space. • Internal memory is organized as separate program and data memory spaces, with two 32- bit internal ports (two 64-bit ports with the C64x) to access internal memory. • With a clock of 150MHz onboard the DSK, one can ideally achieve two multiplies and accumulates per cycle, for a total of 300 million multiplies and accumulates (MACs) per second.
  7. 7. • With six of the eight functional units capable of handling floating-point operations, it is possible to perform 900 million floating-point operations per second (MFLOPS). • 1200 million instructions per second (MIPS)
  8. 8. FUNCTIONAL UNITS • The CPU consists of eight independent functional units divided into two data paths • Each path has a unit for – multiply operations (.M), – logical and arithmetic operations (.L), – branch, bit manipulation, and arithmetic operations (.S), – loading/storing and arithmetic operations (.D). • The .S and .L units are for arithmetic, logical, and branch instructions. • All data transfers make use of the .D units.
