A Description of the MATHILDA System

  • Bruce D. Shriver


A dynamically microprogrammable processor called MATHILDA is described. MATHILDA has been designed to be used as a tool in emulator and processor design research. It has a very general microinstruction sequencing scheme, sophisticated masking and shifting capability, high speed local storage, a 64-bit wide bus structure, a horizontally encoded microinstruction, and other features which make it reasonably well suited for this purpose. Also, hardware modification is relatively easily undertaken to enhance the experimental nature of the machine.
