Abstract : The MJH1 is a very good software tool to use in the analysis of the correctness of various partitioning algorithms. It has the potential to be a forerunner in the discipline of Computer Engineering at North Carolina A & T State University. This is possible because the emulator is easily adaptable to fit system architectures other than SIMD. Through simulation, different architectures can be implemented, as well as various algorithms for exclusive partitioning of matrices to perform simple matrix operations in a parallel or multiprocessor environment. The MJH1 Emulator has the potential to be expanded tremendously. The instruction set could grow immensely. Also the emulator could be made into a smarter, more intelligent machine by combining some existing commands and making its language of a higher level. Keywords: Software, Algorithms, Emulators, System architectures, Code generators.
