Mambo is a full-system simulator for modeling PowerPC-based systems. It provides building blocks for creating simulators that range from purely functional to timing-accurate. Functional versions support fast emulation of individual PowerPC instructions and the devices necessary for executing operating systems. Timing-accurate versions add the ability to(More)
This paper describes the design and validation of a performance and power simulator that is part of the Mambo simulation environment for PowerPC ᭨ systems. One of the most notable features of the simulator, designated as Tempo, is the incorporation of an event-driven power model. Tempo satisfies an important need for fast and accurate performance and power(More)
This paper describes the design and application of a full-system simulation environment that has been widely used in the exploration of the IBM PowerPCt processor and system design. The IBM full-system simulator has been developed to meet the needs of hardware and software designers for fast, accurate, execution-driven simulation of complete systems,(More)
