Abstract: There has recently been an interest in the introduction of reconfigurable buses to existing parallel architectures. Among them Reconfigurable Mesh (RM) draws much attention because of its simplicity. This paper presents the RMSIM (Reconfigurable Mesh SIMulator), a serial simulator written in C, which permits to study algorithms for restricted 3-dimensional RM, known as mesh of meshes, in a monoprocessor environment. RMSIM is an easy-to-use simulator capable of simulating any algorithm in different axis-orientations within restricted regions. To enhance the debugging facilities RMSIM is equipped with a snapshotter to generate LaTeX pictures of any planar segment of the simulated mesh in any step of program execution.
