US Patent 6944746 - RISC processor supporting one or more uninterruptible co-processors
1. A method of processing instructions in a computer system comprising a processor
and a co-processor communicatively coupled to the processor, wherein the processor includes a co-processor interface communicatively coupled to the co-processor, the method comprising:

(a) processing instructions in the processor in an instruction pipeline wherein instructions are processed sequentially by an instruction fetch stage, an instruction decode stage, an instruction execute stage, a memory access stage and a result write-back stage; and

(b) if a co-processor instruction is received by the processor, performing steps of:

(b)(i) providing the co-processor instruction to the co-processor interface during the instruction execute stage: and (b)(ii) transmitting the co-processor instruction from the co-processor interface to the co-processor during the memory access stage.

2. The method of claim 1 further comprising a step (c) of:

(c) if an interrupt or exception is received by the processor, canceling an instruction that is in the instruction execute stage when the interrupt is received and reissuing the instruction starting at the instruction fetch stage.

3. The method of claim 2 wherein if an interrupt or exception is received by the processor when a co-processor instruction is in the instruction execute stage, the co-processor instruction is canceled before the co-processor instruction is transmitted to the co-processor and the co-processor instruction is reissued starting at the instruction fetch stage.

4. The method of claim 1 wherein the co-processor is a processing element for which sending the same co-processor instruction to the co-processor twice decreases the performance of the co-processor.

5. The method of claim 1 wherein the processor is a reduced instruction set computer (RISC) processor.


6. The method of claim 1 wherein the system is a media decoding system, the processor is a core decoder processor and the co-processor is a decoding accelerator adapted to assist the core processor with a decoding function.

7. A computer system comprising:

a processor adapted to process instructions in an instruction pipeline wherein instructions are processed sequentially by an instruction fetch stage, an instruction decode stage, an instruction execute stage, a memory access stage and a result write-back stage, the processor including a co-processor interface; and

a co-processor communicatively coupled to the co-processor interface of the processor and adapted to perform processing tasks in response to co-processor instructions provided by the processor;

wherein the processor is adapted to provide a co-processor instruction to the co-processor interface during the instruction execute stage and wherein the co-processor interface is adapted to transmit the co-processor instruction to the co-processor during the memory access stage.

8. The system of claim 7 wherein if an interrupt is received by the processor, the processor is adapted to cancel an instruction that is in the instruction execute stage when the interrupt is received and to reissue the instruction starting at the instruction fetch stage.

9. The system of claim 8 wherein if an interrupt is received by the processor when a co-processor instruction is in the instruction execute stage, the processor is adapted to cancel the co-processor instruction before the co-processor instruction is transmitted to the co-processor and to reissue the co-processor instruction starting at the instruction fetch stage.

10. The system of 7 wherein the co-processor is a processing element for which sending the same co-processor instruction to the co-processor twice decreases the performance of the co-processor.

11. The system of claim 7 wherein the processor is a reduced instruction set computer (RISC) processor.

12. The system of claim 7 wherein the system is a media decoding system, the processor is a core decoder processor and the co-processor is a decoding accelerator adapted to assist the core processor with a decoding function.

MadMonkey:

Thanks, that's a nice feature ,but can I add that after you do your plug-in updates, you may ask yourself why is my computer running slower then normal?

it's because after you do these updates (ie: itunes does it) a lot of these updates will reinstall the automatic to "run on start-up"... you will be running programs that you can start manually.. I like to go to CCleaner.com and check my registry integrity and disable uneeded programs that "run on start-up"....

IMPORTANT

This goes out ALL to Firefox users.

Most of you know what Add-ons & Plug-ins are i hope. In short, they are other programs attached to Firefox to enable it do other things.

Most of the time Add-ons will update themselves as Firefox checks them.

Plug-ins can take ages to update which can lead to security issues & cause crashes.

Firefox are building a Plug-in checker into the upcoming versions of Firefox.

For now, visit THIS PAGE and allow it to do a check for you, and install any updates it finds.

Bookmark that page and check regularly until the new Firefox is released

Относно: Microsoft at it again.....
Over the last day, Firefox users may have seen a Add-on related message telling them Firefox is blocking certain Microsoft Plugins.

DO NOT PANIC... It has been caused because of Microsoft releasing more software with a serious security vulnerability. Microsoft released many new updates on Tuesday, and thanks to Windows Update (if you have ii switched on) you would of been given this dodgy update.

"While the vulnerability is in an IE component, there is an attack vector for Firefox users as well," admitted Microsoft engineers in a post to the company's Security Research & Defense blog on Tuesday. "The reason is that .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installs a 'Windows Presentation Foundation' plug-in in Firefox."

"This update adds to Firefox one of the most dangerous vulnerabilities present in all versions of Internet Explorer: the ability for Web sites to easily and quietly install software on your PC," said the hints and tips site. "Since this design flaw is one of the reasons [why] you may have originally chosen to abandon IE in favor of a safer browser like Firefox, you may wish to remove this extension with all due haste."


According to Microsoft, the vulnerability is "critical," and also can be exploited against users running any version of IE, including IE8.

I had that same problem before unzipping and extracting drives.oh i whish i could recall all of it but it's extremely frustrating and switching back and forth from USB to ethernet.Are you trying to set up three at the same time or have you tried them individually?I do remember something about a network card but can't recall if i replaced it or not.

I use the same Ethernet cable for this PC so i know thats ok.
Dry joints......seems doubtful to be on all 3 units. (i know all 3 were working networkly before the company sold them off)
The Ethernet card is on board, as in fixed straight to the mother board.
I used the same XP Pro instal disk as i put on here (and on my LapTop Sunday) so thats fine.

It is most perplexing, it does sort of say the disk......but

Universal Eyes: I have downloaded the up to date drivers for that pc onto a USB stick, and installed them from there, so they should be ok.

I was given 2 IBM base units and a laptop. They were ex-company stuff, and all worked fine when they were networked in the enviroment.
I have installed new opertaing systems on them (just XP Pro, which they were using before).
Now the problem...... none of them will recognise the onboard Ethernet.
I have tried everything i can think of.
It knows the Ethernet is there, but thats it. In the device manager is showing as a problem along with the Vidoe Controller & Multimedia Audo Controller. I have been onto the IBM sites, found the correct drivers etc... downloaded them to a usb stick, and installed them. Still nothing.

Ideas anyone ?
