Ql) A computer

en.rploys

RAM chips of 256 x 8 and ROM chips of 1024 x 8. The

computer systelnneeds 2K bytes of R A,M,4K bytes of ROM, and four interface


units, each with four registers. A memory - mapped I/O configuration is used.
The two highest-order bits of rhe addrEss bus are assigned 00 for RAM, 0l
for ROM, and. 10 for intedace registers. Give the address rlange ir hexadecimal
tbr RAM, ROM. and interface.

C5) A DMA controller transfers 16 - bit words ro memory using cycle stealing.
The words are assembled from a det ice that transmits characters at a rate of
2400 characters per second. The CPU is fetching and executing instxctions
at an average rate of 1 million instructions per second. By how much will the
CPU be slowed down because of the DMA transfer?
Q6) Discuss the hard.**.

Q7) Explun in detail the main features of at least two perfonnance eyaluation
benchmarks.

(a) Explain why poor load balancing leads to less-than-linear speedup?


(b) A given processor has 32 registers, ir'ses 16-bit immediates, and has 1,12

Q8)

instructions in its ISA. In a given program, 20% of the instluctions take


one input register and have one outpur register. 30% have two input
registers and one output registel 257o have one output and one input
register and take all immediate input as rvell, and the remaining 257r
have one immediate input register,rnh o,.,a ortput r"gister. For each of'
the fbur types of instructions, how maly bits are required? Assume that
the ISA requires th.rt all instrLrctiors be a l-lrltiple of 8 bits in ]ength.

Q9)

(a) How does pipelining improve perfonnance'l


(b) What is the lesult of the following operatiors wlten executed on a S,bit
