UMA FERRAMENTA PARA ENSINO DE ARQUITETURA DE COMPUTADORES BASEADA EM ATORES UTILIZANDO O FRAMEWORK PTOLEMY

Ramon L. V. Medeiros, Alisson Brito, Antônio Carlos Cavalcanti

Abstract


One of the most difficulties in theMicroelectronics field is find formed professionals. For thisformation many resources are necessary – human andmaterials – which most of the time, are costly. Thus, it isnecessary a solution accessible for institutions andresearchers. It should be also adaptable to their needs,adding escalability and dissemination to the formationprocess, without forget the quality. The objective of thiswork is to develop a tool for teaching Computer Architecturebased on Actor Models with the Ptolemy Framework. Thestudents will be able to model graphically and simulatedifferent architectures, as generate VHDL code to be testedin FPGAs. Actually the tool is in a initial version and theefforts are concentrated on the VHDL code generation. Thenext steps are finish the code generation and a mechanismfor the student verify if the proposed exercises were doneaccording to the teacher specification.Index Terms ⎯ Computer Architecture, Learning, Ptolemy,Actor-based models.
