Abstract : Nebula is a standard instruction set architecture designed for embedded military applications. Several new ideas were incorporated in the standard that allow a family of implementations to effectively use advancing technology. In addition to following design principles that allow Nebula to be a good target for high level languages, the designers also adopted a visibility approach in architecture design that provides more freedom for the hardware implementor while still maintaining software portability.
