Summary form only given, as follows. IAS-S Supports boosting with 'seminar register' and boosting boundary register to remove the dependences caused by conditional branches. In IAS-S, there is no dedicated shadow register file, and multiple levels of boosting is supported without multiple copies of register files. Any general-purpose register in IAS-S can be regarded as a sequential register or a shadow register flexibly. Furthermore, a multiway jump mechanism is combined with boosting to reduce the penalty due to frequent control transfers.
