Applications of microprogramming - computer architecture, Computer Engineering

Applications of Microprogramming:

  • Microprogramming application:: emulation

o   Use of a micro program on 1 machine to execute programs initially written to run on another (different!) machine

o   By changing the microcode of a machine, you can execute software from another machine

o   typically used in the past to permit new machines to continue to run old software

  • VAX11-780 had 2 -modes?

o   Normal 11-780 mode

o   Emulation mode for a PDP-11

o   The Nanodata QM-1 machine was marketed without native instruction set!

  • Universal emulation engine
