Tools for Computer Architecture and Organization: An Integrated Approach
The ARCTools assembler and simulator support the ARC subset of the
SPARC instruction set, which is used throughout the book. Written as
Java applications for easy portability to Windows, Unix, Mac OS X, and
The tools support the examples used in the book, and have several new
features than prior ARCTools versions, including support for input
and output, halfword and byte data types, and several new instructions.
VHDL Description and Implementation of ARC Processor
A VHDL description of the ARC processor has been made available to you, courtesy
of Professor Bert Molenkamp, University of Twente, the Netherlands. There are
working examples (you can try them in ModelSim/Questasim) that match the ARC des
cription in the book chapters. Have a look!
