    Occam is a low-level programming language designed specifically to program an array of transputers, although it may be implemented on a single transputer or other processor using a suitable run-time support system. The paper describes the use of occam to model combinatorial and sequential logic systems. The suitability of occam for such modelling is discussed. View full abstract»

    Testing microprocessor systems at the development stage can take up to a third of the total development time and yet techniques for testing may only be thought about once the design stage has been undertaken. A correct approach to testing can considerably reduce the time needed to take a prototype through to a working system, and this not only means that a product can be on the market faster, but the development costs can be considerably reduced. The paper looks at the techniques and requirements for testing microprocessor-based systems and suggests alternatives to expensive development systems. View full abstract»

    The paper describes a distributed basis for implementing remote software development facilities over a local area network. High-level facilities are resident in a host development computer and can be used to develop or debug software in remote target computers through simple communications and control primitives resident in each machine. Software downloading and high-level debugging in C are specifically illustrated. View full abstract»
