Abstract:

A graphics-application program was developed to interface an existing digital-logic-simulator program with the Control Data 6000 series, 274 Interactive Graphics System. The logic simulator simulates synchronous and asynchronous digital-logic networks. The graphics-application program interfaces the logic simulator with the graphics system, thereby enabling one to play an interactive role in digital-logic simulation. The program allows the user, while operating at the graphics console, to draw his network on the CRT face of the console screen, input the network parameters and data through lightpen picks or keyboard entries, and observe the results of the simulation of the network as they are displayed on the CRT. After observing the results of a simulation, the user is allowed to easily make changes to his network, network parameters, or data for another simulation. Several suggestions related to possible useful extensions of the interfacing program are presented. Author
