FAST is a Flexible Architecture Simulation Tool. FAST was designed as a framework for fast processor simulation. Its modular design allows for the easy addition of timing and statistics modules. The current release only supports the execution of DLX assembly programs. Features:

  • Fast execution
  • Supports the simulation of muliproccessor programs via: fork(), join(), barrier(bar_num,num_bars),shared memory using shared global variables
  • A monitor mode for debugging DLX programs
  • Dynamic instruction count statistics
  • A cycle level timing module
