Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Implementation of microprocessors are becoming more and more complex and difficult to understand for the student beginning to learn how to design computer hardware and to program in assembly language. Currently, the Computer Systems Engineering Department offers a course where a digital circuit is designed with the Motorola 68000 microprocessor. In order to enhance the laboratory exercises for the students and to allow them to experiment with more than one microprocessor, a simulator is under development which will allow student to choose among the microprocessors in the 68000 family and to place them into digital circuit designs. The student can get an idea of what he/she wants before using the computer aided design package to complete the design of the circuit.
