|Abstract||Diagnostic Emulation is the application of microprogramming to the emulation of an operational computer to support software development and verification for that computer. A conventional technique, Interpretive Computer Simulation (ICS), has been used for many years in support of such software development and verification efforts. The ICS method is becoming less cost effective. For the development of attitude control software for NASA's High Energy Astronomical Observatory (HEAO) diagnostic emulation was considered as an alternative. This paper describes the motivation for using an ICS or diagnostic emulator to validate command and control software, the potential advantages of microprogramming, and the analysis which led to the development of the HEAO Diagnostic Emulator rather than the use of conventional techniques. Also discussed are the emulator implementation tradeoff analysis, the resulting program design, and the interface between the microprogram and the assembly language modules. The results to date are described, including the capability, speed, and reliability of the program and initial user response.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
