Abstract:

This is the final report of a program initiated to implement a complete emulator utilizing the GPU circuit. When it was discovered that the GPU was going to require some mask changes the effort was redirected to start the definition of the LSI Micro Controller Circuit and to start developing an LSI Simulator for systems interface verification. This report covers work performed to establish the initial requirements and characteristics of a high performance microprogram controller IC. Some key elements of the study were op-code decomposition techniques of target machines, definition of the controller function, and architecture of target machines with regards to requirements for the controller IC. The information developed under this contract will be of direct use in a follow-on contract to design and develop the controller IC. Author
