Level-3 Software Development


DAQ will provide a mechanism to port and test software which has been developed in a simulation environment to the embedded environment of the level 3 CPU. A high level language will be supported.


Conditions in the simulation environment will be quite different from that encountered in the level-3 CPU. First, it is unlikely that TAS records will be supported in level-3. Second, the level-3 CPU does not have an attached keyboard and screen for debugging. Finally, support for memory swapping may not be provided by the operating system running on the level-3 processors.
