THE PDP-l6/M - A SUBMINICOMPUTER BASED ON RTM'S
The PDP- 16/M is a particular configuration of modules interconnected to behave in a fashion similar to a microprogram computer. The user (programmer) expresses register transfer operations in terms of the fixed set of operations that are hardwired into the 1 6/M. The computer is based on the Program Controlled Sequencer, K(PCS), control module (see Chapter 2), and microinstructions are stored in the K(PCS) memory. Although the microinstruction set is fixed, it can be extended by rewiring. Also, additional data part modules can be added to change the basic structure of the 16/M. Behavior is expressed in about the same way as with the RTM flowchart.
