This research develops an object-oriented approach of modeling
microprocessor architecture. A generic modeling library, bBlocks, is proposed as a
framework for constructing microprocessor simulation. bBlocks is a collection of
predefined abstract components (blocks) implemented in Java, the object-oriented
Blocks are defined and used as the basic components in...
This paper corrects an apparent deficiency in the published
information concerning Hardware Description Languages (HDLs) by
introducing and discussing an approach for selecting an HDL for
use in a design project. Although three classes of HDLs are discussed
in this paper, High-Level Languages (HLLs), General Purpose
Simulation Languages (GPSLs) and...
SIDAC-I is a digital analog simulator which permits analog as
well as hybrid simulations to be programmed on a digital computer.
FORTRAN, a scientific computer language, may be included as an
integral part of the SIDAC-I simulation language. The simulator
consists of a controller program and a set of predefined...
This simulation is a model for a tidal power-peaking plant that
can be used to determine the electrical peaking generation for a given
set of conditions.
The simulation internally contains a tide producing function
for a specific year, the hydraulic characteristics of the plant, and the
plant's machines' characteristics. The...
