YACC (Yet Another CPU CPU) is MIPS I (TM) subset cpu written in Verilog.-2001HDL. YACC has 5 pipeline and shows 110DMIPS in stratix2 with synthesized allowable clock of 165MHz. It is independent design of plasma, although YACC uses gcc-elf-mips tools provided by Steve Rhords, author of plasma (Most mips written in VHDL).
The core was developed by using Veritak Simulator, with post layout gate simulation, and tested by actual FPGAs, using Xilinx spartan3 starter kit and Cyclone by Altera,running 800 digits of pi calculation ,(255,223) Reed Solomon Error Correction ,and Interactive calculator written by C language.

When I am developing VHDL to Verilog translator , I found plasma core in opencores. It is excellent work to learn a lot. After I translated plasma written by VHDL to Verilog HDL almost automatically using Veritak Translator, I stated to design my own CPU per following target spec.
