Register Files

  A register file is an array of registers that is capable of simultaneous multiple read and write operations on different registers. An example is shown in Figure 128.

Figure 128: A register file.

The register file in this example is capable of two read operations and one write operation. A register file such as this could be used in an ALU design with two operands and one result.
