1 Vector Pipelines There are four types of vector pipelines implemented in the VP2000 series which 21 are the load/store, mask, multiply & add/logical execution, and divide pipelines (Fig. 4). The operation rate of the vector pipeline depends on the model which is controlled by hardware. Two identical load/store pipelines are provided (only one pipeline for model VP2100) to transfer data between a vector register (a mask register) and the MSU, which can be operated concurrently for continuously addressed data.

4 Other Features for High Speed Processing Some vector instructions generate the result into a scalar register. o the scalar register in which preceding vector instruction stored. The data to be sent to the scalar register is bypassed to the next vector instruction without waiting for the completion of the preceding vector instruction. Vector instructions, which access to the MSU in a random order, sometimes access the same address successively. In this case, the two accesses to the same address are merged to one in order to reduce wasteful accesses.
