Abstract
THE MAJOR PROBLEM WITH USING MACHINE-INDEPENDENT MICROPROGRAMMING LANGUAGE IS EFFECTIVE MACHINE TARGETING. A MICROCODE COMPILER IS DESIRABLE WHICH EASILY DIRECTS THE CODE GENERATOR OF A HIGH-LEVEL LANGUAGE TRANSLATOR IS DISTINCT MICROPROGRAMMABLE MACHINES. IT IS PROPOSED TO STUDY THE PARTITIOING OF THE MICROCODE GENERATION PORTION OF THE TRANSLATOR INTO TWO SEPARATE BUT RELATED COMPONENTS: A MACHINE-INDEPENDENT MICROCODE GENERATION AI ALGORITHM THAT USES PRE-COMPUTED, MACHINE-DEPENDENT TEMPLATES TO MAP INTERMEDIATE LANGUATE CONSTRUCTS TO MICRO-OPERATIONS, AND A MICROCODE ALGORITHM THAT AUTOMATICALLYCOMPUTES THE MACHINE-DEPENDENT TEMPLATES DIRECTLY FROM A MICRO MACHINE DESCRIPTION. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH SEEK TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING MACHINE-INDEPENDENT MICROCODE GENERATION METHODS IN A RETARGETABLE MICROCODE COMPILER FOR HIGHLY HORIZONTAL ARCHITECTURES, PARTICULARLY VLSI AND VHSIC SIGNAL PROCESSING MICROARCHITECTURES DESCRIBED IN THE VHSIC-VHDL.
