    Hello everyone

    In the last couple of months, I have become very interested in CPU
    design. Specially the ones that you can actually build and fire up
    right on your kitchen table (i.e. the ones you can get into a decent
    FPGA). I have read the classic texts on the subject (Enoch Hwangs book,
    Jan Grays articles and scanned all code I could find on OpenCores, to
    name a few). What I am still missing is some real-world design
    examples. You know, things like L1 and L2 caches, TLB and all that
    stuff. Things that differs PicoBlaze from ARM9 :)

    While ago, I saw a recommendation here in the group about few books
    that taught state-of-the-art techniques. It contained references to
    things like the newest ARM, Intel and AMD CPUs. Unfortunately, I cannot
    find the post anymore.

    Any idea which book or books it was?

    (any general recommendation is also very welcome)

    Might look at Leon3. I think that is what you had in mind.
  3. My bible on CPU design is "Computer Architecture, A Quantitative Approach".

    I never stop reading it.
