Abstract: A data processing system includes a number of processing elements wherein each of the processing elements generates one or more condition signals, one or more memory elements associated with the processing elements for storing instructions and data associated with the processing elements, at least one register for storing a predicate associated with each of the processing elements and logic for comparing condition signals from each of the processing elements with a corresponding predicate to generate one or more branch test signals, and combination logic to provide a single take branch signal based on branch test signals and logic masks associated with each of the predicates.
