Multiscalar Processors presents a comprehensive treatment of the basic principles of Multiscalar execution, and advanced techniques for implementing the Multiscalar concepts. Special emphasis is placed on highlighting the major challenges involved in Multiscalar processing. This book is organized into nine chapters, and provides an excellent synopsis of a large body of research carried out on multiscalar processors in the last decade. It starts with technology trends that provide an impetus to the development of multiscalar processors and shape the development of future processors. The work ends with a review of the recent developments related to multiscalar processors.
