Name : 1. (20) The first two bytes of a 2M x 16 main memory have the following hex values: Byte 0 is FE Byte 1 is 01 If these bytes hold a 16-bit two's complement integer, what is its actual decimal value if: a. memory is big endian? b. memory is little endian?
a. FE0116 = 1111 1110 0000 00012 = -51110 b. 01FE16 = 0000 0001 1111 11102 = 51010

2. (20) A digital computer has a memory unit with 24 bits per word. The instruction set consists of 150 different operations. All instructions have an operation code part (opcode) and an address part (allowing for only one address). Each instruction is stored in one word of memory. a. How many bits are needed for the opcode? b. How many bits are left for the address part of the instruction? c. What is the maximum allowable size for memory? d. What is the largest unsigned binary number that can be accommodated in one word of memory?
a. 150 instructions implies 28 (27 will only give us 128 instructions), or 8 bits for the opcode. b. 24 - 8 = 16. c. 216, or 32M. d. 24 1's, or 224 -1.

3. (10) Suppose that a 2M x 16 main memory is built using 256K x 8 RAM chips and memory is wordaddressable. a. How many RAM chips are necessary? b. How many RAM chips are there per memory word? c. How many address bits are needed for each RAM chip? d. How many address bits are needed for all of memory?
a. 16 (8 rows of 2 columns) b. 2 c. 256K = 218, so 18 bits d. 2M = 221, so 21 bits

4. (40) Suppose we have the instruction Load 1000. Given memory and register R1 contain the values below: Memory Address 1000 --1100 --1200 --1300 --1400 Value 1400 400 1000 1100 1300

Assuming R1 is implied in the indexed addressing mode, determine the actual value loaded into the accumulator if R1= 200 and fill in the table below: Mode Value loaded into AC

5. (10) A major advantage of direct mapping of a cache is its simplicity. The main disadvantage of this organization is that a) It does not allow simultaneous access to the intended data and its tag b) It is more expensive than other types of cache organizations c) The cache hit ratio is degraded if two or more blocks used alternately map onto the same block frame in the cache d) Its access time is greater than that of other cache organizations e) The number of blocks required for the cache increases linearly with the size of the main memory.

6. (20) A hypothetical microprocessor communicates with its memory and peripheral over an 8-bit data bus and a 16-bit address bus. It contains an 8-bit accumulator A and two 16-bit registers: program counter PC and index register X (see diagram below) The opcode of each instruction is one byte (8 bits) long. Assume that any internal processor time is negligible, and that the time to address memory and transfer one byte in either direction over the data bus equals unity (one memory cycle). The time taken to fetch and execute the 3-byte instruction store A in some address indexed by X is a) 3 b) 4 (3 cycle for fetch and 1 cycle for store. Then total is 3+1 = 4) c) 5 d) 6 e) 7 7. (30) If a cache access requires one clock cycle and handling cache misses stalls the processor for an additional five cycles, which of the following cache hit rates comes closest to achieving an average memory access of 2 cycles? a) b) c) d) e) 75 80 (2 = h*1 + (1-h)*6 83 86 98 h=0.8)

8. (80) Write the microinstruction sequence to implement the two word machine level instruction OR R1, X where the address mode is indicated as indexed based addressing, and R6 and R7 are the index and base registers, respectively a) On a single bus organization b) On a double bus organization For single bus // For fetching first word PCout, MARin, READ, INC, Zin WFMFC, Zout, PCin MDRout, IRin //For fetching second word PCout, MARin, READ, INC, Zin WFMFC, PCin MDRout, Yin //Y register contains offset X // Add R6+R7+X

R6out, ADD, Zin Zout, Yin R7out, ADD, Zin Zout, MARin, READ //Get the data at address pointed to by (R6+R7+X) WFMFC, R0out, Yin // To save time, copy R0 into Y register MDRout, OR, Zin Zout, R0in END

9. (40) The parameters of a hierarchical memory system are specified as follows: Main memory size = 8K blocks Cache memory size = 512 blocks Block size = 16 words Determine the size of the tag field under the following conditions: a. Fully associative mapping b. Direct mapping c. Set associative mapping with 16 blocks/set

a) b) c)

TAG 13 4 8


WORD 4 4 4

10. (30) What is the average access time of a system having three levels of memory hierarchy: a cache memory, a semiconductor main memory, and magnetic disk secondary memory. The access times of these memories are 20 ns, 200 ns, and 2 ms, respectively. The cache hit ratio is 80 per cent and the main memory hit ratio is 99 per cent. h1 = 0.8 : cache hit ratio, h2 = 0.99 : main memory hit ratio atc = access time for cache atm = access time for main memory ats = access time for secondary memory Then the formula for average access time is (if access time for upper memories does not include lower memory accesses) Aat = h1*atc + (1-h1)[atc + h2*atm + (1-h2)*(atm + ats)] If it includes Aat = h1*atc + (1-h1)[h2*atm + (1-h2)*ats] 11. (20) If the clock frequency of a computer system is 50 Mhz, what is the period of this clock in ns? F*T = 1 T = 1/(50*106)sn = (1*109) /(50*106)ns = 20ns
