Abstract: Digital systems composed of cooperating microprogrammed units are considered. A concurrent microprogramming language C-MIDDLE is proposed; it is an extension of the sequential language MIDDLE. C-MIDDLE has a denotational semantics which constitutes a basis for reasoning about the behavior of concurrent microprograms and their compositions. A Petri-net-based modeling method of C-MIDDLE programs as well as a verification system VECOM are also presented.
Keywords: cooperating microprogrammed units; concurrent microprogramming; C-MIDDLE; denotational semantics; microprogram composition; VECOM.
