Write the following statement of an Arithmetic Instruction using RTL.
If op-code is 0, the instruction is ‘add’. The values in register rb and rc are added and the result is stored in register rc
Question No: 18 ( Marks: 2 )
Given below are the various fields of an SRC instruction register.
a) operation code field : op<4..0>
b) target register field : ra<4..0>
c) operand, address index, or branch target register : rb<4..0>
