This is a revision of an introduction to the field for all computer scientists and engineers. It includes improved examples of current architectures and updated pipelining and memory chapters to address modern processors.Review:
The authors provide a comprehensive, detailed, and highly technical overview of computer design, going right to the hardware/software interface where data and instructions have their physical representation. While much of the book centers on processor architectures and memory design, it also offers strong background sections on computer arithmetic, machine instructions, performance measurement, and the historical development of computer systems. A natural for any electrical engineer interested in the field of computer architecture and design, this volume will also prove highly valuable for computer scientists and programmers in any low- or high-level language.
