This talk will be about the heart of a NoISA processor, the Hotstate machine. The Hotstate machine is an advanced runtime loadable microcoded algorithmic finite state machine. Unlike other FSMs the Hotstate machine includes many CPU-like features. It supports subroutines and single cycle interrupts. The Hotstate machine is programmed in a subset of C that supports all C control statements and can be debugged using any C debugger. The Hotstate machine is heavily parametrized and is written in SystemVerilog. The compiler will generate parameters from the program and size the machine to fit the program.
