This research adopts the VHDL (Very high speed IC Hardware Description Language) design of a direct mapped cache controller for a pipelined MIPS (Microprocessor without Interlocked Pipeline Stages) processor. In this design, the instruction cache and data cache are separated and located in the CPU (Central Processing Unit) core. Write back policy is used while no replacement algorithm is required. After completing the cache controller design, it is combined with a pipelined MIPS processor and
