The definitive source for the DLX instruction set architecture introduced
in John L. Hennessy and David A. Patterson's Computer Architecture: A
Quantitative Approach. DLX is a selective amalgam of several sophisticated
load/store architectures; it was developed to serve as a simple example of
a pure RISC architecture and is invoked throughout Computer Architecture to
demonstrate design principles. With its complete and up-to-date information
on the details of DLX, this handbook is a valuable supplement for anyone
studying from Computer Architecture, whether self-taught or as part of a
class. It will also make an informative addition to the library of any
computer systems designer or RISC aficionado.
Beginning with the origins and history of DLX, the opening section of the
handbook covers the essential topics of registers, data formats,
addressing, and interrupt handling. The second section provides a general
description of the instruction set architecture, followed by the specifics
of DLX instruction types, format notation, and operation notation.
Appendices provide a quick reference to the instruction set and the latest
available version of documentation for the DLXsim simulator.
