CHAPTER 32 — Floating Point Comparison Instructions

The MIPS Floating Point Accelerator (FPA) chip (now, usually part of the processor chip) has a condition bit that is set to 0 or 1 to indicate if a condition is false or true. Several FPA instructions affect this bit and several CPU instructions test this bit.

Chapter Topics:


Are the FPA (floating point accelerator) and coprocessor 1 the same?
