Abstract:

This research investigates the requirements needed to simulate VHDL electronic circuit descriptions by using an MC68020 based parallel engine. It analyzes the potential parallelism of the simulation of VHDL descriptions and presents a detailed design of the system hardware and software requirements. It presents timing models of the overall system for speedup, network operation, and synchronization. It concludes with a description of an N.2 simulation program which validates the operational characteristics of the design. Thesis.
