Why Turing?

Turing is named after Alan Turing, the famous English computer scientist who formed part of the successful Bletchley Park team who decoded the Nazi Enigma machine using the world's first operational electronic computer. The following is an extract from Alan's…

Turing Quests

Turing quest allows the teacher/student to test their abilities in understanding the operation of a simple CPU and then use its particular machine code to write algorithms to solve a range of increasingly hard problems. In the current version there…

Turing instruction set

Turing has been designed to be a reasonably complex CPU with instructions that reflect most of the operations that real CPUs can carry out: Simple arithmetic (but limited to add and subtract) Logical operations (and,or and bit shifts) Register loading…

Saving and loading Turing programs

As with real computers Turing programs can be saved once completed and then reloaded to be run at a later time. The exact details of saving and loading are slightly different on different devices, depending on whether there is a…

Writing a program in Turing

Turing is a programming machine, so how easy is it to write a program? First, you need to know the language. Turing's machine language includes a range of instructions (as shown on the separate menu entry on the right). Next…

Turing Controls

Turing is designed to be operated from laptops, desktops,tablets and phones. A design decision was that use of the app would be essentially the same on all these different devices to make moving from use of one (say a desktop…

Fetch

Fetch allows users to explore the fetch/decode/execute cycle of a modern CPU.

Gates

Gates is our electronic logic gate simulator, designed for KS4 Physics and Computing teachers and learners.

Babbage

Babbage is our entry level CPU simulator. It allows teachers and learners to look at how a CPU works but crucially it omits some of the complexity required for higher grades/levels and all of the arithmetic is done in decimal…

Turing Overview

Turing is a model computer. It contains all the parts that of a real computer but simplified a bit so that you can understand what the parts do when it is working. There may be some debate about whether Turing…
