Math Co-processor

A few instructions are available to perform data transferring between the coprocessor and the AX register of the microprocessor. It worked in tandem with the or and introduced about 60 new instructions. Archived from the original on 30 September The Intelannounced in copgocessor, was the first x87 floating-point coprocessor for the line of microprocessors.

Intel microprocessors Intel x86 microprocessors Floating point Coprocessors. The x87 instructions operate by pushing, calculating, and popping values on this stack. An important aspect of the from a historical perspective was that it became the basis for the IEEE floating-point standard.

Just as the and processors were superseded by later coprkcessor, so was the superseded. This is especially applicable on superscalar x86 processors Pentium of and later where these exchange instructions are optimized down to a zero clock penalty. The did not implement the eventual IEEE standard in all its details, as the standard was not finished untilbut the did. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

The redundant duplication of prefetch queue hardware in the CPU and the coprocessor is inefficient in terms of power usage and total die area, but it allowed the coprocessor interface to use very few dedicated IC pins, which was important. If an instruction with a memory operand called for that operand msth be written, the would ignore the read word on the data bus and just copy the address, then request DMA and write the entire operand, in the same way that it would read the end of an extended operand.


The was able to detect whether it was connected to an or an by monitoring the data bus during the reset cycle. At run time, software could detect the coprocessor and use it for floating point operations. Trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential functions are built into the coprocessor hardware. The handles infinity values by either affine closure or projective closure selected via the status register.

The Ms and Rs specify the addressing mode information. The maintains its own identical prefetch queue, from which it copricessor the coprocessor opcodes that it actually executes.

Other Intel coprocessors were the, and the The x87 family does not use a directly addressable register set such as the main registers of the x86 processors; instead, the x87 registers form an eight-level deep stack structure [13] ranging from st0 to st7, where st0 is the top. The looked for instructions that commenced with the ” sequence and acted on them, immediately requesting DMA from the main CPU as necessary to access memory operands longer than one word 16 bitsthen immediately releasing bus control back to the main CPU.

This yielded an execution time penalty, but the potential crash problem was avoided because the main processor would ignore the instruction if the coprocessor refused to accept it. The was an advanced IC for its time, pushing the limits of period manufacturing technology.

However, dyadic operations such as FADD, FMUL, FCMP, and so on may either implicitly use the topmost st0 and st1, or may use st0 together with an explicit memory operand or register; the st0 register may thus be used as an accumulator i. Intel Math Coprocessor. Initial yields were extremely low. With projective closure, infinity is treated as an unsigned representation for very small or very large numbers.


Discontinued BCD coprofessor 4-bit If the operand to be read was longer than one word, the would also copy the address from the address bus; nath, after completion of the data read cycle driven by the CPU, the would immediately use DMA to take control of the bus and transfer the additional bytes of the operand itself.

The microprocessor intercepts and executes the normal instruction set and the coprocessor intercepts and executes only the coprocessor instructions. Because the instruction prefetch queues mzth the and make the time when an instruction is executed not always the same as the time it is fetched, a coprocessor such as the cannot coprpcessor when an instruction for itself is the next instruction to be executed purely by watching the CPU bus.

Bill took steps to be sure that the chip could support a yet-to-be-developed math chip. The stack register within the coprocessor is 80 bits wide.

Development of the led to the IEEE standard for floating-point arithmetic. You get question papers, syllabus, subject analysis, answers – all in one app. The retained projective closure as an option, but the and subsequent floating point processors including the only supported affine closure.
