Very Long Instruction Word
Jump to user comments
(VLIW) Used to describe an assembly language instructionset implemented using horizontal microcode. A horizontally
encoded instruction word which encodes four or more operations
might be considered "very long".
VLIW architectures are sometimes classified as a type of
static superscalar architecture. They are static in the
sense that which units operate in parallel is determined by
the instruction rather than by dynamic scheduling at run time.
