Pagination or Media Count:
The research is directed toward the development of tools required to optimally design computers in a new environment which makes use of microprogram control, microcontrol storage, medium and large scale integration. The effort is extended over a broad area languages, computer models, optimization and culminates in a computer aided design method for the optimal selection of functional components for microprogrammable central processing units. The report is divided into several interrelated parts a general design method is proposed, a new language is proposed, a cost performance model of a microprogrammable central processing unit is developed, and an optimization procedure is developed. Several examples are presented. Author
