The WIZ

This document assumes you already know all about the ZOZ. You MUST read the ZOZ first or you will not understand the WIZ!
For a shorter overview: In the ZOZ book, read "The big picture". Then here, read The WIZ circuits 1, 2, and 8, and A chip full of WIZes 1, 2, 3, and 6.


Prologue

   1.  From ZOZ to organized ZOZ

   1.  The frontend circuit
   2.  Example backend circuits
   3.  RAM
   4.  Constants
   5.  Instruction timing
   6.     Timing: ILP and OOO
   7.     Timing: datapaths and pipelines
   8.  The gateway circuit
   9.  The stored program
  10. The goto & gotoIf circuits
  11. Summary

One hundred thousand WIZes: the chip

   1.  A chip full of WIZes
   2.  Some history and rationale behind the WIZ
   3.  Inter-WIZ communication (internal details)
   4.  Inter-WIZ functions and bare-naked WIZes
   5.  WIZ-level parallelization
   6.  OS services and the placement algorithm
