The Use of Software Simulators in the Testing and Debugging of Microprogram Logic
July 1981 (vol. 30 no. 7)
pp. 519-523
G.J. Myers, Microcomputer Division, Intel Corporation
Recent trends in computer architecture have increased the amount of control logic (e.g., microinstructions) in digital systems, thus making testing and debugging a more formidable task. This correspondence discusses the needs and objectives of software simulators for testing and debugging microprogram logic, and discusses a simulator developed to aid the development of a large microprogrammed system.
Index Terms:
testing, Debugging, microprogramming, processor simulation
