The three independent execution units within the central processing unit (CPU) are an IEEE single extended precision arithmetic logic unit (ALU) for central math and logical processing, a program control unit (PCU) for fetching, decoding and dispatching instructions, and a dual address generation unit (AGU) that calculates addresses of data to be fetched from memory.
