Homework Assignment 7 -- CS429 Fall 2013
Due Date: 16 Oct 2013
- I have two arrays of length 120: x and y. I want to add the contents of x[i] to the contents of y[i],
for the entire array. This could be best done with
- a SISD machine
- a MIMD machine
- a SIMD machine
- a MISD machine
- a Von Neumann machine
- a Harvard model
- On the x86, instructions are variable length. How do I know how long an instruction is?
What is the maximum length of an instruction?
- On the PDP-8, there is no load instruction. How do I load a value from memory into the A register?
Does this, in effect, make the PDP-8 a variable length instruction machine?
