AbstractEvery effective simulation system should offer enough flexibility to allow thorough examination of the simulation object. HPSIM is a non-interactive function level Hardware Program SIMulator which is used to simulate synchronous clock mode sequential circuits. HPSIM, although a powerful design tool, lacks the flexibility to let the user carry out a "trial and error" simulation or inspect the behavior of the circuit for several inputs without having to prepare separate input files and re-run the entire program for every input. This thesis explores the drawbacks of HPSIM and offers solutions to produce a more effective design tool. The result is the interactive version of HPSIM or HPSIM/I which includes all features of HPSIM plus several added capabilities.
