Abstract:

The Microprogrammed Control Unit MCU is a high-speed, user-microprogrammable, executive, input-output processor and interrupt handler for the NRL Signal Processing Element SPE, a part of the All Applications Digital Computer AADC. The report describes the MCU architecture, a new programming language AMIL, and its translator. AMIL A MIcroprogramming Language is a FORTRAN-like language which allows MCU users to write microprograms in a convenient format instead of binary bit patterns. The AMIL translator converts AMIL programs into the microinstruction bit patterns which the MCU will execute. This program marks the start of MCU software development. Author
