1.Hard-wired instruction decode logic instead of microcoded ROMs todecode2.Pipelined execution3.Possible single cycle executionRISC Advantages:1.Smaller die sizes2.Shorter time to develop3.Possible higher performance than CISC4.High clock rate with single cycleRISC Disadvantages:1.Generally less code density than CISC2.Cannot execute x86 code, at least not without some sort of conversion andperformance drawback
PROCESSOR OVERVIEW :-
ARM offers a wide range of processor cores based on a common architecture,that deliver high performance together with low power consumption and systemcost.The ARM processor range provides solutions for:
Open platforms running complex operating systems for wireless,consumer and imaging applications.
Embedded real-time systems for mass storage, automotive, industrial andnetworking applications.
Secure applications including smart cards and SIMs.The ARM processor is a powerful low-cost, efficient, low-power (consumption,that is) RISC processor. It's design was originally for the Archimedes desktop
