The packet instruction set computer (PISC) architecture is a synchronous dataflow architecture developed for network processors. It uses a deep pipeline that contains two types of processing elements: PISC processors, which perform programmable data manipulation, and I/O processors, which provide access to shared resources such as look-up table memory, hardware accelerators, or coprocessors.
