M. • The instruction bytes are transferred to the instruction queue.Internal Architecture of 8086 • 8086 has two blocks BIU and EU. • EU executes instructions from the instruction system byte queue. • The BIU performs all bus operations such as instruction fetching.

Specifically it has the following functions: • Instruction fetch. • The bus interface unit is responsible for performing all external bus operations. • The BIU uses a mechanism known as an instruction stream queue to implement a pipeline architecture. Instruction queuing.Internal Architecture of 8086 (cont. Krishna Kumar MM/M1/LU3/V1/2004 9 . M.

With its 16 bit data bus. the BIU is free to look ahead in the program by prefetching the next sequential instruction.Internal Architecture of 8086 (cont. Krishna Kumar MM/M1/LU3/V1/2004 10 . • After a byte is loaded at the input end of the queue.. When ever the queue of the BIU is not full. • These prefetching instructions are held in its FIFO queue. M. it automatically shifts up through the FIFO to the empty location nearest the output.) • This queue permits prefetch of up to six bytes of instruction code. the BIU fetches two instruction bytes in a single memory cycle. it has room for at least two more bytes and at the same time the EU is not requesting it to read or write operands from memory.

. • These intervals of no bus activity. It reads one instruction byte after the other from the output of the queue. If the queue is full and the EU is not requesting access to operand in memory. • If the BIU is already in the process of fetching an instruction when the EU request it to read or write operands from memory or I/O. the BIU first completes the instruction fetch bus cycle before initiating the operand read / write cycle.

Krishna Kumar MM/M1/LU3/V1/2004 12 .) • The BIU also contains a dedicated adder which is used to generate the 20 bit physical address that is output on the address bus. the physical address of the next instruction to be fetched is formed by combining the current contents of the code segment CS register and the current contents of the instruction pointer IP register. • The BIU is also responsible for generating bus control signals such as those for memory read or write and I/O read or write.. • For example. M. This address is formed by adding an appended 16 bit segment address and a 16 bit offset address.
