ColdFire optimizing compilers

The Green Hills MIPS optimizing compilers use a common code generator with architecture and processor specific optimizations. MIPs-specific features include:

  • Processor Options—Specific to each MIPS architecture and processor supported for optimal performance. This setting determines the instructions permitted as well as the pipeline optimization strategy used.
  • Position Independent Code (PIC) and Data (PID)—Allows code and data to be placed anywhere in memory and still run correctly.
  • MIPS16e Instruction Set—Generates code for the MIPS16e ASE.
  • MIPS-3D—Supports the MIPS-3D ASE through intrinsic functions.
  • 64-bit Integers—Supports 64-bit data types, constants, and expressions for all MIPS processors.
  • Far Function Calls—Handles code that exceeds the limits of the MIPS call instruction.
  • Inline Prologue—Generates inlined code or calls a routine when saving and restoring registers.
  • Linker Optimizations—The Green Hills Linker optionally performs additional optimizations for speed and size.
  • MIPS32/MIPS64 Release 2—Generates code for the latest version of the MIPS architecture.
  • Memory Allocation Functionality—The alloca() function provides a mechanism to allocate a fixed size of memory that is automatically freed when the current function exits
  • Small Data Area—The Green Hills Compilers collect frequently accessed variables into a 64KB block of memory. This enables single instruction access to data within this block, saving code size and improving performance.
