A Digital Logic Simulator with Concurrent Programming Considerations.

The digital logic simulator, LOGSIM248, a re-engineered version of LOGSIM, version 5.5, has been implemented as a component of the digital design environment, IDIET Integrated Digital Engineering Tool. This new design expands the capabilities of the older version by improving run time performance, maintainability, and compatability. Written in the C programming language, LOGSIM248 boasts looser coupling between functional modules while exhibiting greater functional cohesion within these modules. As an integral part of IDIET, the simulator overcomes difficulties created by the complicated user interface of earlier versions. With greater run time performance as a goal, this new simulator was studied and adapted to produce a concurrent implementation. Here, several roadblocks were encountered which essentially showed this algorithm and data structure implementation to be difficult to parallelize at best.
