Abstract : This report describes a machine microprogramming and support software generation effort to enable the execution of Ada programs on a small embedded computer. The microprogrammable minicomputer emulator (MIME) resident in the AFIT Digital Engineering Laboratory is used as the Ada target machine. The Ada compiler used is resident on the Avionics Lab DEC-10 and produces pseudo-machine code. The main effort of this project was to accomplish the microprogramming of the MIME to execute this pseudo-code and to develop support software to facilitate transfer of Ada programs from the DEC-10 to the MIME. The final results indicate that the MIME provides an excellent capability for the study of Ada programming of embedded computers.
