    A frame of reference is established for evaluating the various philosophies or approaches to the microprogramming of control logic. Three new measures for analyzing microprogramming philosophies are introduced: "monophase" versus "polyphase," "parallel" versus "serial," and "encode" versus "little encode." The terms monophase, polyphase refer to how long the microinstruction is valid. Parallel, se... View full abstract»

    Functional memory (FM) is a general-purpose systems technology and has been proposed as a solution to the problems of large-scale integration. It is based on an associative array, composed of writable storage cells capable of holding three states; 0, 1, and DON'T CARE. The functional memory module can be used either as a local store, control store, associative store, or logic block. In its use as ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a small computer, Interdata Model 3, that has been microprogrammed to serve as an intelligent terminal. The Interdata is connected to a System/360 multiplexor channel with a high-speed interface, and uses an ARDS direct view storage tube as a display console. The new Interdata target machine is patterned after the /360 (including all five instruction formats), but also has ins... View full abstract»

    With increased use of microprogramming in present computer systems, the need arises to automate the checking and optimization of microcode. This paper reviews the optimization objectives, characterizes microprogranis, and discusses the machine structure. A translator from machine code to microcode appears feasible and is described. Some compiler techniques are reviewed and adapted to improve micro... View full abstract»

    This report describes the microdiagnostics which were developed for incorporation into the IBM System 360 Model 30 maintenance package. These microdiagnostics enable the System 360 Model 30 to develop internal diagnostics with fault detection and location capabilities, and led to a reduction in the amount of training and service equipment required to adequately service the system.
