Sisd

Flynn's taxonomy (multiprogramming context)
Single instruction stream Multiple instruction streams Single program Multiple programs
Single data stream SISD MISD
Multiple data streams SIMD MIMD SPMD MPMD

In computing, SISD (single instruction stream, single data stream) is a type of computer architecture in which a single uni-core processor, executes a single instruction stream, to operate on data stored in a single memory. This corresponds to the von Neumann architecture.

SISD is one of the four main classifications as defined in Flynn's taxonomy. In this system, classifications are based upon the number of concurrent instructions and data streams present in the computer architecture. According to Michael J. Flynn, SISD can have concurrent processing characteristics. Pipelined processors and superscalar processors are common examples found in most modern SISD computers.[1][2]
