Abstract : Results are reported of a feasibility study on the incorporation of hardware into the PDP-10 computer to transform virtual-segment-address references into memory references. The report discusses justification for virtual-segment addressing, operating system implications, proposed virtual-address formats, functional properties of the proposed address-decoding hardware, required hardware and how it interfaces with existing hardware, and reltionship with other virtual memory designs.
