3.2.5. Datapath

A datapath is a chain of registers and Boolean logic in a digital circuit that performs computations.

For example, the datapath in Pipelining consists of all of the elements shown, from the input register to the last output register.

Memory blocks are outside the datapath and reads and writes to memory are also considered to be outside of the datapath.
