Abstract or Summary
  • REGTRAN (REGister TRANsfer), a hardware description language and SYSSIM (SYStems SIMulation), a simulator for the system described by REGTRAN were originally developed by Edward Pett, Jr [33] at the University of Texas at Austin. These two programs are successfully used to simulate many digital systems of complex nature. It is the primary purpose of this paper to describe the implementation of these two programs for KRONOS at Oregon State University. In this process, various problems, due to the differences in the operating systems, were faced. These problems are discussed in detail and the changes that were made are included. REGTRAN and SYSSIM are not capable of simulating micro-instructions or a microprocessor. For this reason, another simulator MICRO is developed. Detailed description of MICRO and its use as a general purpose simulator as well as a microprogram simulator are given in detail. As an example, partial emulation of DEC PDP-8 is shown. Suggestions for the improvement of MICRO, REGTRAN and SYSSIM are mentioned.
