A framework for microprocessor correctness statements
free download

M Aagaard, B Cook, N Day ,Correct Hardware Design and , 2001 ,Springer
Most verifications of out-of-order microprocessors compare state-machine-based
implementations and specifications, where the specification is based on the instruction-set
architecture. The different efforts use a variety of correctness statements, implementations, 

DDD-FM9001: Derivation of a verified microprocessor
free download

B Bose ,Correct hardware design and verification methods, 1993 ,Springer
The DDD-FM9001 is a 32-bit general purpose microprocessor formally derived directly from
Hunt’s mechanically verified Nqthm FM9001 microprocessor specification. The exercise was
part of a project to construct an implementation of the FM9001 by applying the DDD 

 A Holter-type, microprocessor-based, rehabilitation instrument for acquisition and storage of plantar pressure data

ZO Abu-Faraj, GF Harris ,Journal of , 1997 ,rehab.research.va.gov
Abstract—A Holter-type, microprocessor-based, portable, inshoe, plantar pressure data
acquisition system has been developed. The system allows continuous recording of
pressure data between the sole of the foot and the shoe during the performance of daily 

A framework for superscalar microprocessor correctness statements
free download

MD Aagaard, B Cook, NA Day ,International Journal on , 2003 ,Springer
Abstract. Most verifications of superscalar, out-of-order microprocessors compare state-
machine-based implementations and specifications, where the specification is based on the
instruction-set architecture. The different efforts use a variety of correctness statements, 

The DUAL-EVAL hardware description language and its use in the formal specification and verification of the FM9001 microprocessor
free download

BC Brock ,Formal Methods in System Design, 1997 ,Springer
We present the full formal semantics of the DUAL-EVAL hardware description language.
DUAL-EVAL is a hierarchical, occurrence-oriented simulator for synchronous Mealy
machines. We briefly describe the FM9001 microprocessor, whose design has been 

Power-performance modeling and tradeoff analysis for a high end microprocessor
