Abstract: MythSim is an open-source control-code simulator designed by students and instructors at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The simulator is a central part of the undergraduate computer architecture curriculum in the Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering departments. In the Computer Science Department the simulator is used in a two-semester sequence that covers digital logic, datapath design and assembly programming. As a final project the students implement a simple assembly language in microcode. By writing their own control code they gain a fundamental understanding of how the computer works.
