A Software-Configurable Processor Architecture
September/October 2006 (vol. 26 no. 5)
pp. 42-51
A software-configurable processor combines a traditional RISC processor with a field-programmable instruction extension unit that lets the system designer tailor the processor to a particular application. To add application-specific instructions to the processor, the programmer adds a pragma before a C or C++ function declaration, and the compiler then turns the function into a single instruction.
