Computer Simulator

Logo for Computer Simulator
The above Java Applet simulates a simple computer consisting of 32 8 bit memory words. The computer operates by fetching a word in memory pointed to by the Program Counter (PC) into the Instruction Register (IR)and then executing this instruction. The Program Counter is then incremented by one and the process is repeated until a Halt instruction is fetched at which time the computer stops and the binary number in the Accumulator (ACC)can be read. Example Programs of Prime Number Generator,... More

After going through the simulation of the computer data path I found this a remarkable tool to teach future students in computer repairs. I like how you analyze and go through a data stream to teach a first time computer person. Just needs to be updated with some new break through with the new Computer's CPUs.

A much more user-friendly Computer Simulator than some. Nice layout.
Relatively easy to understand.
