Using a Microprocessor in an Intelligent Graphics Terminal

  title={Using a Microprocessor in an Intelligent Graphics Terminal},
  author={Jacques Raymond and Dilip K. Banerji},
Graphic terminals allow on-line interaction between the user and his program, thereby enabling him to alter the displayed picutre according to his requirements. However, a major problem with the use of a graphic terminal is the cost associated with it. There is no doubt that low-cost graphic terminals are available, but their utility is very limited since they have no processing capability (or intelligence) and must depend on a host processor attention, while at the same time putting additional…

Microcomputer Peripherals
A general microcomputer-based digital system design philosophy is presented, a rationale for microcomputer peripherals is provided, and the operation and application of commercially available micro computer peripherals are considered.
Component-Based Design of Embedded Software: An Analysis of Design Issues
An analysis of the true nature of embedded systems, which is predominantly real-time control and monitoring systems, has been used to formulate the guidelines used to develop COMDES – a software framework for distributed embedded applications.
Using timed Petri net to model instruction-level loop scheduling with resource constraints
A new timed Petri net model is presented to integrate functional unit allocation, register allocation and spilling into a unified theoretical framework, and it is proved that the optimum loop schedules can be found with polynomial computation complexity, for almost all practical loop programs.
Phase Ordering of Register Allocation and Instruction Scheduling
This paper presents a unified approach to instruction scheduling and global (beyond basic blocks) register allocation and states that register allocation should be performed before scheduling.
