MIPS Core PSP
The MIPS Core PSP for Prism provides enhanced analysis capabilities for users of MIPS processors with particular support for users migrating sequential applications onto the Hardware Multithreaded (MT) and Multicore devices of the 34K and 1004K core families, and in optimizing application performance on those devices.
This application note provides a detailed tutorial of how to use the features of the MIPS Core PSP within Prism. End users who are either considering migrating existing software applications onto the 34K or 1004K core, or who already use those cores but wish to optimize their operation are the target audience for this paper. In keeping with the general Prism methodology, the analyses illustrated below do not require code changes; as usual, the intent is to establish the benefits of potential code changes prior to making them. The source code and architecture models used are available from CriticalBlue and it is assumed that the reader is familiar with using Prism and has at least completed the built-in tutorials.
