Pipeline Execution of Instruction Types
4.2.1 Single-Cycle Instructions
Single-cycle instructions complete execution during the E1 phase of the pipe-
line (see Table 4−3). Figure 4−8 shows the fetch, decode, and execute phases
of the pipeline that single-cycle instructions use.
Figure 4−9 shows the single-cycle execution diagram. The operands are read,
the operation is performed, and the results are written to a register, all during
E1. Single-cycle instructions have no delay slots.
