Fixed point addition and subtraction of bit numbers were handled in the Long Add Unit, using ones' complement for negative numbers. Fixed point multiply was done as a special case in the floating-point multiply unit—if the exponent was zero, the FP unit would do a single-precision bit floating-point multiply and clear the high exponent part, resulting in a bit integer result.
Integer divide was performed by a macro, converting to and from floating point. In-stack jumps were quicker than out-of-stack jumps because no memory fetch was required. The stack was flushed by an unconditional jump instruction, so unconditional jumps at the ends of loops were conventionally written as conditional jumps that would always succeed.
Memory organization[ edit ] User programs are restricted to use only a contiguous area of main memory. The portion of memory to which an executing program has access is controlled by the RA Relative Address and FL Field Length registers which are not accessible to the user program.
When a user program tries to read or write a word in central memory at address a, the processor will first verify that a is between 0 and FL This process is known as base-bound relocation; each user program sees core memory as a contiguous block words with length FL, starting with address 0; in fact the program may be anywhere in the physical memory.
Using this technique, each user program can be moved "relocated" in main memory by the operating system, as long as the RA register reflects its position in memory. A user program which attempts to access memory outside the allowed range that is, with an address which is not less than FL will trigger an interrupt, and will be terminated by the operating system.
When this happens, the operating system may create a core dump which records the contents of the program's memory and registers in a file, allowing the developer of the program a means to know what happened. Note the distinction with virtual memory systems; in this case, the entirety of a process's addressable space must be in core memory, must be contiguous, and its size cannot be larger than the real memory capacity.
ECS was built from a different variety of core memory than was used in the central memory. This made it economical for it to be both larger and slower. The primary reason was that ECS memory was wired with only two wires per core contrast with five for central memory. Because it performed very wide transfers, its sequential transfer rate was the same as that of the small core memory.
A CPU could directly perform block memory transfers between a user's program or operating system and the ECS unit. Wide data paths were used, so this was a very fast operation.
ECS could be used for a variety of purposes, including containing user data arrays that were too large for central memory, holding often-used files, swapping, and even as a communication path in a multi-mainframe complex. Substantial parts of the operating system ran on the PP's; thus leaving most of the power of the Central Processor available for user programs.
If necessary, PP 0 would assign another PP to load any necessary code and to handle the request.
The unique role of PP0 in controlling the machine was a potential single point of failure, in that a malfunction here could shut down the whole machine, even if the nine other PPs and the CPU were still functioning properly. Cray fixed this in the design of the successorwhen any of the PPs could be the controller, and the CPU could reassign any one to this role.
Each PP included its own memory of bit words. This meant that the execution units the "slot" would execute one instruction cycle from the first PP, then one instruction cycle from the second PP, etc.
This was done both to reduce costs, and because access to CP memory required 10 PP clock cycles: Wordlengths, characters[ edit ] The central processor had bit words, while the peripheral processors had bit words. CDC used the term "byte" to refer to bit entities used by peripheral processors; characters were 6-bit, and central processor instructions were either 15 bits, or 30 bits with a signed bit address field, the latter allowing for a directly addressable memory space of K words of central memory converted to modern terms, with 8-bit bytes, this is 0.Oct 15, · Ryan White guidance had been adapted by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).
