This paper describes the simulation approach utilized in the design of a Large Scale Integration (LSI) computer. The objectives to be fulfilled via software simulation were verification of the computer design and the associated micro-code. Since no Vendor Technology Logic (VTL) breadboard was planned, the fulfillment of the objectives was critical to the success of the total design effort. The simulation approach supported not only the initial computer design and introduction of micro-code to… CONTINUE READING
