Processor reconfiguration through instruction-set metamorphosis
March 1993 (vol. 26 no. 3)
pp. 11-18

The processor reconfiguration through instruction-set metamorphosis (PRISM) general-purpose architecture, which speeds up computationally intensive tasks by augmenting the core processor's functionality with new operations, is described. The PRISM approach adapts the configuration and fundamental operations of a core processing system to the computationally intensive portions of a targeted application. PRISM-1, an initial prototype system, is described, and experimental results that demonstrate the benefits of the PRISM concept are presented.
