Title Fred: an architecture for a self-timed decoupled computer
Date 1996
Description Decoupled computer architectures provide an effective means of exploiting instruction level parallelism. Selftimed micropipeline systems are inherently decoupled due to the elastic nature of the basic FIFO structure, and may be ideally suited for constructing decoupled computer architectures. Fred is a self-timed decoupled, pipelined computer architecture based on micropipelines. We present the architecture of Fred, with specific details on a micropipelined implementation that includes support for multiple functional units and out-of-order instruction completion due to the self-timed decoupling.
