PGPG: An Automatic Generator of Pipeline Design for Programmable GRAPE Systems

Tsuyoshi Hamada, Toshiyuki Fukushige, Junichiro Makino
2005 Nippon Tenmon Gakkai obun kenkyu hokoku

A retrospective on the Dorado, a high-performance personal computer

Kenneth A. Pier
1983 Proceedings of the 10th annual international symposium on Computer architecture - ISCA '83  
In late 1975, members of the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center embarked on the specification of a high·performance successor to the Alto personal minicomputer, in use since 1973.  ...  The paper concludes with some speculations on what the project might have done differently and what might be done differently today instead of in the late 1970s.  ...  The Dorado is designed for efficient execution of multiple languages that are compiled into a stream of byte codes [24] ; this execution is called emulation.  ...
