Description: In this paper, we present a novel hardware Central Processing Unit (CPU) design methodology based on a 5-step approach. The method starts with a definition of the target CPU internal components and data and address size. The method is applicable to a higher level of abstraction and complexity. However, for ease of illustration a basic CPU with a minimum size instruction set is selected. The instruction set complies with the instruction set completeness criteria. The instruction format is likewise chosen to be simple and illustrates the way our methodology is implemented. The CPU is implemented on an Altera FPGA/CPLD Flex10K device using schematic approach with the Altera MAX+Plus II software CAD. The design was simulated and tested using Altera UP2 board.
