A Preliminary Evaluation of Trace Scheduling for Global Microcode Compaction

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Fisher has recently described a new procedure for global microcode compaction which he calls “trace scheduling.” We have implemented this procedure and tested it on several microcode sequences. We report in this correspondence on the relative effectiveness of local compaction, manual compaction, and trace scheduling on these sequences.
