Register range calculation


Recommended Posts


How the registerFile range is calculated.

For example, if I have a register file with dim=4, this register file contains the following

- Register R1 32 bit

- gap 32 bit

- Register R2 32 bit

- gap 32 bit

Then what will be the range for this registerFile.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Kushi,

The registerFile range is an element inside the register file. Its value is expressed in addressUnitBits of the memory map. Assuming the addressUnitBits value is 8, then. in your example, the register file range shall be at least 16 (4 for each register and 4 for each gap). The total range is equal to the register file range multiplied by the dim, so that is 64 addressUnitBits (=64*8 bits) in this example.

Best regards,
