ForestaPC (Scalable-VLIW) User Instruction Set Architecture

        This document describes the ForestaPC User Instruction Set Architecture. It covers the base instruction set and related facilities available to the application programmer. This architecture is tailored for extensive exploitation of instruction-level parallelism (ILP) in programs, that is, for executing many basic (primitive) instructions at a time. ForestaPC is a scalable-VLIW architecture, which also allows implementations exploiting limited instruction-level parallelism.
