CPU and Memory simulation

Logo for CPU and Memory simulation
This applet is a graphical look at the ways in which commands are executed in memory. The graphical nature of this applet makes comprehension of what is happening a bit more intuitive for newer students. I highly recommend using the sample files and reading instructions before proceeding.

My review of the material consisted of using the Java applet with one of the
supplied assembly programs. The quality of the context is quite good. I think
the xComputer applet would be an excellent method for providing a visual
representation of CPU operation.
