Dependences are a property of programs. Text from page-4 Lecture Plan Subject Code: For example, we cannot take an instruction from the then-portion of an if-statement and move it before the ifstatement.

For example, in the code segment: Name Dependences The name dependence occurs when two instructions use the same register or memory location, called a name, but there is no flow of data between the instructions associated with that name.

Various types of Dependences in ILP. Every instruction, except for those in the first basic block of the program, is control dependent on some set of branches, and, in general, these control dependences must be preserved to preserve program order.

Whether a given dependence results in an actual hazard being detected and whether that hazard actually causes a stall are properties of the pipeline organization. Text from page-2 Lecture Plan Subject Code: This renaming can be more easily done for register operands, where it is called register renaming. Here is a simple example of a loop, which adds two element arrays, notee is completely parallel: The importance of the data dependences is that a dependence 1 indicates the possibility of a hazard, 2 Determines the order in advanved results must be calculated, and 3 Sets an upper bound on how much parallelism can possibly be exploited.

Note for Advanced Computer Architecture – ACA by Rajib Swain

The second condition simply states that one instruction is dependent on another if there exists a chain of dependences of the first type between the two instructions. Archltecture original ordering must be preserved to ensure that i reads the correct value. Touch here to read.

To exploit instruction-level parallelism, determine which instructions can be executed in parallel. If two instructions are dependent they are not parallel and must be executed in order.

Static Technique — Software Dependent 2. Both anti-dependences and output dependences are name dependences, as opposed to true data dependences, since there is no value being transmitted between the instructions.

The presence of the dependence indicates the advancsd for a hazard, but the actual hazard and the length of any stall is a property of the pipeline. A control dependence determines the ordering of an instruction, i, with respect to a branch instruction so that the instruction i is executed in correct program order.

The various techniques that are used to increase amount of parallelism are reduces the impact of data and control hazards and increases processor ability to exploit parallelism There are two approaches to exploiting ILP. This vomputer is critical to understanding how instruction-level parallelism can be exploited.

An instruction that is control dependent on a branch cannot be moved before the branch so that its execution is no longer controlled by the branch.

architdcture This dependence chain can be as long as the entire program. The ordering between the instructions must be preserved to ensure that the value finally written corresponds to instruction j. Lecture Plan Subject Code: Data Dependence and Hazards: Add Add to Favourite Add to classroom. CS Name of the subject: An instruction j is data dependent on instruction i if either of the following holds: There are two types of name dependences between an instruction i that precedes instruction j in program order: There are three different types of dependences: Cs23544 parallelism ILP is the potential overlap the execution of instructions using pipeline concept to improve performance of the system.

Text from page-1 Lecture Plan Subject Code: Since a name dependence is not a true dependence, instructions involved in a name dependence can execute simultaneously or be reordered, if the name register number or memory location used in the instructions is changed so the instructions do not conflict.


Executing the instructions simultaneously will cause a processor with pipeline interlocks to detect a hazard and stall, thereby reducing or eliminating the overlap. Advancex from page-3 Lecture Plan Subject Code: Register renaming can be done either statically by a compiler or dynamically by the hardware. Share it with your friends. If two instructions are parallel, they can execute simultaneously in a pipeline without causing any stalls.

In general, there are two constraints imposed by control dependences:
