  • This paper discusses the design and construction of a micro controlled mini-computer used as peripheral processor unit for the PDP-11/20 in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. The instruction set for this computer is determined by the micro code in a read only memory (ROM) and is therefore flexible: Changing the ROM results in a different set of machine instructions. The instruction set currently implemented while general purpose in… CONTINUE READING
