AbstractThe purpose of this experiment was to implement an alternative mapping realization of the hierarchical abstract simulator on the Intel Multibus 1 microprocessor system. Utilizing three 286/10 single board computers, integration of the M286 monitor with the hierarchical abstract simulator algorithm and execution of the distributed simulator system (DSS) was studied. Seven experiments were done on the DSS showing that the DSS correctly executes the algorithm of the hierarchical abstract simulator. An additional benefit is that parallelism is achieved even without external input: one simulator executes the internal transition function, with other executing the external transition function. This system has demonstrated that the hierarchical abstract simulator concept can be implemented on present-day, available hardware.
