Abstract The microcode of the ECLIPSE MV/8000 controls the hardware to emulate an instruction set. In the MV/8000 the micro-architecture is defined and limited by the following constraints: 1) the desire to implement microcode in a limited number of locations; 2) the use of LSI technology; 3) a virtual memory architecture. This paper will attempt to show how each of these factors contributed to the micro-architecture, to describe that architecture, and to relate some of the more interesting microcoding issues.
