Differences of horizontal and vertical micro code - Computer architecture and design
Explain the differences of horizontal and vertical micro code
Horizontal Micro Code
- In this types of code the micro code contains the control signal without any intermediary.
- Horizontal micro code instruction contain a lot of signals and hence due to that the number of bits also increase.
Vertical Micro code.
- In case of vertical micro code every action is encoded in density.
- Vertical micro code are slower but they take less space and their actions at execution time need to be decoded to a signal.
