Abstract: The dramatically increasing performance of computer systems is associated with an increase in hardware and system complexity, which has impacted computer science and engineering education. Formerly high-performance and advanced computer architecture techniques and technologies have migrated to our desktop computers, and consequently, into computer systems and architecture courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. A new computer architecture simulation tool to enhance the teaching of architecture-related computer science and engineering courses is presented, which also can be used by researchers and engineers. This tool allows the simulation of computer architectures with user specified configurations, topologies, and interconnection networks, while running workloads whose characteristics are also under the control of the modeler. The simulator utilizes the recently published unified model of parallel processing and includes each of the five identified levels of parallelism. The simulator is a java applet, which can be used from a web browser, allowing anyone with an Internet connection access to the tool without concern about student licensing requirements.
