Title

A MIPS assembly language simulator designed for education

Abstract

The MIPS computer architecture is widely used in undergraduate computer architecture and organization courses because of its straightforward design. MIPS is the primary example of the popular textbook Computer Organization and Design, used at over 400 universities. We describe a GUI, Java-based simulator for the MIPS assembly language, with characteristics that emphasize usefulness to undergraduate computer science students and - importantly - their instructors.Java and Sun are trademarks or registered trademarks of Sun Microsystems, Inc. in the United States and other countries.
