Selected Software and Hardware Systems
Phillips, J. (2001 – 2012) MU CPU – several variations of this simple CPU were built from scratch out of logic gate elements and simulated on a Multi-Media Logic digital simulator. Design documents, sample programs, and CPU logic files are available at http://www.programbetter.com/courses/cis3330/mucpu/mucpu.htm.
Phillips, J. (2010) Multi-CPU Computer Simulator – this simulator was written from scratch using the Java programming language following the MVC design pattern. It can simulate several different CPUs within the structure of a small computer system with several different peripheral devices attached. The program was used in CIS3330 Computer Organization as a tool to introduce machine language and assembly language programming. In addition, the program was used in the CIS2206 / CIS3306 Java programming courses as an example of a MVC-based Java GUI program.
Phillips, J. (2009) 4-Bit CPU – a logic-gate-based computer was designed, simulated, and then built using 74 series HCT integrated circuits. Documentation for the project is posted at http://4bitcpu.wordpress.com/. The design was used in the Fall 2009 Computer Organization course.
Travis, K., Phillips, J., King, B. (2009) MSC – Mansfield University Simulated Computer. This was a joint student / faculty Department Scholars Research Project that featured a GUI-based Java Program that simulated a microcontroller system based on the MUCPU instruction set complete with peripheral devices. The software was used by students in the Mansfield University CIS3330 Computer Organization course. A poster on the project was presented at the Celebration of Scholarship conference at Mansfield University on April 15, 2009.
J. (2000 - 2003) Coursenotebook - Internet-based
course communication tools. Source code available
Phillips, J. (2003) Quiz
generator applet - this Java
applet generates random problems on selected computer

Written in dBase II - IV for KC Printing, Inc.
J. (1987) T-Bots - a multiplayer battle game
that teaches the fundamentals of programming. Written
in dBase III.
J. (1986) Inventory control system. Written
in dBase II for ServiTech, Inc.
J. (1985) Flashwriter - a small, fast, and easy
to use MSDOS-based text editor written in C and assembler.
J. (1983) USFS data logger. Ruggedized portable hardware designed and built from scratch using an Intel 8051 microcontroller and Intel 1 megabit bubble memory for the United States
Forest Service. The data logger control program was written
in Intel 8051 assembly language.
J. (1982) Soil cone penetrometer data logger. Designed, built, programmed, and field tested a portable data logger based on the Intel 8085 microprocessor and EPROM memory for
the Virginia Tech Department of Agricultural Engineering.
