Title: A language for microcode description and simulation in VLSI
Author: Hennessy, John L.
Date: July 1980
Abstract: This paper presents a programming language based system for
specifying and simulating microcode in a VLSI chip. The
language is oriented toward PLA implementation of microcoded
machines using either a microprogram counter or a finite
state machine. The system supports simulation of the
microcode and will drive a PLA layout program to
automatically create the PLA.
