Project Description

You will have to Implement a pipelined processor on a simulator in C. Here is a copy of the school assignment
First, read and understand the documentation for the pipelined version of LC-3b you are going to implement. You may download it from the link below:

Your job is to implement the pipelined LC-3b microarchitecture exactly as it is described in the above documentation. Some of the logic blocks in the pipeline are left for you to implement. It is advisable that you design these logic blocks on paper before you start writing the simulator code.

The accuracy of your simulator is your main priority. It is suggested that you start out by writing a one instruction program and simulating the execution of this program cycle by cycle using the idump command to verify that the instruction propagates correctly through the pipeline. We suggest that you start out by making sure a simple instruction, like an ADD, flows correctly through the pipeline. Then you can move on to more complicated instructions like loads and branches. Try instructions one by one to make sure each works as it is supposed to. After you get the memory and control instructions working correctly, you can try more complicated programs that contain dependencies and test whether or not your pipeline stalls correctly.
