Abstract:

The INTEL 432670 microcomputer system contains the iAPX-432 microprocessor which executes compiled ADA programs. The compiler resides on a host VAX 11780, and compiled programs are downloaded to an INTEL MDS 800 system where they are transferred to the 432670 for execution. This thesis describes a preliminary performance evaluation of the INTEL 432670 through the use of selected benchmark algorithms from the Computer Family Architecture CFA study. A description of the hardware components of both the MDS 800 and 432670 is provided, including the modifications made to the operating system to allow compatibility with existing hardware. Additionally, the benchmark program source code and a users manual are appended. Author
