Because the IALU’s computational pipeline is one cycle deep, in
most cases integer results are available in the next cycle. Hard-
ware (register dependency check) causes a stall if a result is
unavailable in a given cycle.
The ADSP-TS201S processor’s program sequencer supports the
• A fully interruptible programming model with flexible pro-
gramming in assembly and C/C++ languages; handles
hardware interrupts with high throughput and no aborted
instruction cycles
• A ten-cycle instruction pipeline—four-cycle fetch pipe and
six-cycle execution pipe—computation results available
two cycles after operands are available
• Supply of instruction fetch memory addresses; the
sequencer’s Instruction Alignment Buffer (IAB) caches up
to five fetched instruction lines waiting to execute; the pro-
gram sequencer extracts an instruction line from the IAB
and distributes it to the appropriate core component for
• Management of program structures and program flow
determined according to JUMP, CALL, RTI, RTS instruc-
tions, loop structures, conditions, interrupts, and software
• Branch prediction and a 128-entry branch target buffer
(BTB) to reduce branch delays for efficient execution of
conditional and unconditional branch instructions and
zero-overhead looping; correctly predicted branches that
are taken occur with zero overhead cycles, overcoming the
five-to-nine stage branch penalty
• Compact code without the requirement to align code in
memory; the IAB handles alignment
Interrupt Controller
The DSP supports nested and nonnested interrupts. Each inter-
rupt type has a register in the interrupt vector table. Also, each
has a bit in both the interrupt latch register and the interrupt
mask register. All interrupts are fixed as either level-sensitive or
edge-sensitive, except the IRQ3–0 hardware interrupts, which
are programmable.
The DSP distinguishes between hardware interrupts and soft-
ware exceptions, handling them differently. When a software
exception occurs, the DSP aborts all other instructions in the
instruction pipe. When a hardware interrupt occurs, the DSP
continues to execute instructions already in the instruction pipe.
Flexible Instruction Set
The 128-bit instruction line, which can contain up to four 32-bit
instructions, accommodates a variety of parallel operations for
concise programming. For example, one instruction line can
direct the DSP to conditionally execute a multiply, an add, and a
subtract in both computation blocks while it also branches to
another location in the program. Some key features of the
instruction set include:
• CLU instructions for communications infrastructure to
govern Trellis Decoding (for example, Viterbi and Turbo
decoders) and Despreading via complex correlations
• Algebraic assembly language syntax
• Direct support for all DSP, imaging, and video arithmetic
• Eliminates toggling DSP hardware modes because modes
are supported as options (for example, rounding, satura-
tion, and others) within instructions
• Branch prediction encoded in instruction; enables zero-
overhead loops
• Parallelism encoded in instruction line
• Conditional execution optional for all instructions
• User defined partitioning between program and data
The DSP’s internal and external memory is organized into a
unified memory map, which defines the location (address) of all
elements in the system, as shown in Figure 3.
The memory map is divided into four memory areas—host
space, external memory, multiprocessor space, and internal
memory—and each memory space, except host memory, is sub-
divided into smaller memory spaces.
The ADSP-TS201S processor internal memory has 24M bits of
on-chip DRAM memory, divided into six blocks of 4M bits
(128K words × 32 bits). Each block—M0, M2, M4, M6, M8, and
M10—can store program, data, or both, so applications can
configure memory to suit specific needs. Placing program
instructions and data in different memory blocks, however,
enables the DSP to access data while performing an instruction
fetch. Each memory segment contains a 128K bit cache to
enable single cycle accesses to internal DRAM.
The six internal memory blocks connect to the four 128-bit wide
internal buses through a crossbar connection, enabling the DSP
to perform four memory transfers in the same cycle. The DSP’s
internal bus architecture provides a total memory bandwidth of
33.6G bytes per second, enabling the core and I/O to access
eight 32-bit data words and four 32-bit instructions each cycle.
The DSP’s flexible memory structure enables:
• DSP core and I/O accesses to different memory blocks in
the same cycle
• DSP core access to three memory blocks in parallel—one
instruction and two data accesses
• Programmable partitioning of program and data memory
• Program access of all memory as 32-, 64-, or 128-bit
words—16-bit words with the DAB
