A data processing apparatus having a dataflow architecture includes an addressor module, an operational module and a memory module, and data to be processed is accompanied by a command and is applied to the respective module through a uni-directional bus. The addressor module and the operational module are integrated within a common hardware circuit having a feedback loop. A normal operation (an arithmetic and logic operation) is executed by the common hardware circuit by using only the uni-directional bus, while an address generating operation is executed by the common hardware circuit by using the uni-directional bus and the feedback loop.
