Abstract

A bit-sliced hardware realization of a CMOVE architecture microcomputer is proposed. AMD 2900 equipment is used in most parts of the system, currently under construction. A comparative study of performance of arithmetic operations, between the CMOVE processor and existing microprocessors (Intgel 8085, 8086, Motorola 68000 and Zilog 8000) has been conducted for both single and multiple precision addition and multiplication. CMOVE turned out to be faster, particularly for multiplications at any precision level. In single-byte addition its performance is comparable to Intel 8085, which is even slightly faster than the CMOVE for this case. An extension of the system into a distributed processor with a capability of connection to a large number of peripherals has been proposed.
