Abstract

Micro-instruction generation for horizontally microprogrammable computers is examined in order to reduce the number of required micro-instructions for a loop-free segment of micro-operations. The micro-instruction generation process is analyzed and two optimization methods are presented. The first method is algorithmic in that it will always generate the minimum micro-instruction set for a given subblock of micro-operations. The other method is heuristic and does not always result in the minimum micro-instruction set. The methods are shown to achieve better results than those of the existing methods.
