Getting Started with OpenVMS System Management

Getting began with OpenVMS process administration offers new VMS approach managers a jumpstart in coping with this strong and trustworthy working procedure. Dave Miller describes the necessities of what an OpenVMS method supervisor must deal with. He defines parts of OpenVMS procedure administration and describes why every one is necessary and the way it suits into the bigger administration job.

Application Analysis Tools for ASIP Design: Application Profiling and Instruction-set Customization

This e-book presents an outline of the new developments in innovative layout automation instruments for software particular Instruction-set Processor (ASIP) improvement. ASIPs have gotten more and more universal in lots of embedded System-on-Chip architectures as a result of their exact mixture of flexibleness and performance/energy potency.

Systems Architecting : A Business Perspective

Derived from industry-training sessions that the writer teaches on the Embedded structures Institute at Eindhoven, the Netherlands and at Buskerud collage collage at Kongsberg in Norway, platforms Architecting: A enterprise viewpoint areas the approaches of structures architecting in a broader context by means of juxtaposing the connection of the platforms architect with firm and administration.

Sample text

The entries in the vector table are instructions that branch to specific routines designed to handle a particular exception or interrupt. The memory map address 0x00000000 is reserved for the vector table, a set of 32-bit words. On some processors the vector table can be optionally located at a higher address in memory (starting at the offset 0xffff0000). Operating systems such as Linux and Microsoft’s embedded products can take advantage of this feature. 6). 6 ■ Reset vector is the location of the first instruction executed by the processor when power is applied.

Coprocessors are used to extend the instruction set and functionality. Coprocessor 15 controls the cache, TCMs, and memory management. An ARM processor is an implementation of a specific instruction set architecture (ISA). The ISA has been continuously improved from the first ARM processor design. Processors are grouped into implementation families (ARM7, ARM9, ARM10, and ARM11) with similar characteristics. 9 Summary Chapter Introduction to the ARM Instruction Set 3 This introduction to the ARM instruction set is a fundamental chapter since the information presented here is used throughout the rest of the book.

10 ARM10 six-stage pipeline. The pipeline design for each ARM family differs. 9. 1 Dhrystone MIPS per MHz—an increase in instruction throughput by around 13% compared with an ARM7. The maximum core frequency attainable using an ARM9 is also higher. 10. 3 Dhrystone MIPS per MHz, about 34% more throughput than an ARM7 processor core, but again at a higher latency cost. Even though the ARM9 and ARM10 pipelines are different, they still use the same pipeline executing characteristics as an ARM7. Code written for the ARM7 will execute on an ARM9 or ARM10.
