MET - Related Work
The mechanism to generate traces is somewhat similar to the principles used in SimOS. A PowerPC version of SimOS is being developed at IBM Austin Research Labs (ARL).
Some of the ideas applied in the development of The MET originated from research performed for exploring other architectures, as reported in
