Paper Abstract

This report describes an open source VHDL description of a 64-bit MIPS-based processor. The pipeline can execute most instructions from the MIPS III instruction set architecture (ISA). The full pipeline is made available to digital VLSI engineers as a platform to test cell designs as a part of a complete computing system. The pipeline is an 8-stage RISC based on the MIPS R4000 series of processors, and includes common arithmetic operations on 32- and 64-bit operands, and full IEEE 754 floating point support. This report describes the architecture and components of the MIPS-based processor.
