A chip includes a programmable logic device and a microprocessor, wherein at least one of the associated registers of the microprocessor is distributed in the programmable logic device. The distributed register is coupled to both the microprocessor and the programmable logic device. In this manner, the microprocessor has the ability to access the register and place a value into the programmable logic device all in one clock cycle. Additionally, the logic functions in the programmable logic device are also advantageously available to the microprocessor.
