Abstract or Summary
  • Computers have made a great contribution to the design process in various applications, such as design analysis and simulation. A new technology called Computer-aided design (CAD) has helped the designer to design and build very intricate systems. While most of CAD software is run on workstations or microcomputers with one or more display devices of high resolution for graphics, a considerable amount of CAD software has recently been developed and introduced for personal computers. This software can be run on personal computers with minimum configuration, making them suitable for use in educational environments such as Computer Engineering design courses. Schematic Logic Analyzer and Verifier (SLAV) is one such software package for personal computers and has been granted to the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of Oregon State University by Automated Logic Design Company (ALDEC) for educational purposes. SLAV is being evaluated for use in a digital computer design course at the Department. A major drawback is its lack of a step-by-step instruction manual for the users, who are not familiar with the software. This thesis provides a solution to this problem by showing how to use the software, eventually providing a full instruction manual for SLAV. To demonstrate its potential, the Central Processing Unit (CPU) of a simple digital computer has been designed by using SLAV. This computer is simple with a minimum hardware configuration. It is an 8-bit machine with a memory unit, an arithmetic logic unit, a control unit and six registers. Three representative instructions are implemented to allow simulation of the computer to show how it works.
