A Unified Processor Model for Compiler Verification and Simulation Using ASM [chapter]

Roland Lezuo, Andreas Krall
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Finally we present our preliminary results which indicate that a unified ASM model is sufficient for proving correct instruction selection and generating efficient cycle-accurate simulators.  ...  For safety critical embedded systems the correctness of the processor, toolchain and compiler is an important issue.
