Short for Very Long Instruction Word, a microprocessor design technology. A chip with VLIW technology is capable of executing many operations within one clock cycle. Essentially, a compiler reduces program instructions into basic operations that the processor can perform simultaneously. The operations are put into a very long instruction word that the processor then takes apart and passes the operations off to the appropriate devices.
