The introduction of the Motorola MC68000 family of microprocessors ushered in a new era of microprocessors. These are single-chip microprocessors designed to function as the central processing units of sophisticated computer systems. The prime objective of this thesis work is to develop a simulator for the MC68000 microprocessor mainly for educational purposes. The simulator would help in any test or research work utilizing 68000 assembly programs in the future. Most of the instructions in the 68000 family are implemented. Both the user mode and supervisory mode programs can be written and run against the simulator. Besides supporting most of the MC68000 features the simulator also has additional features to help debugging.
