Using ITL and Tempura for large scale specification and simulation.
ITL and Tempura are used for respectively the formal specification and simulation of a large scale system, namely the general purpose multi-threaded dataflow processor EP/3. This paper shows that this processor can be specified concisely within ITL and simulated with Tempura. But it also discusses some problems encountered during the specification and simulation, and indicates what should be added to solve those problems.
