Patterson-Hennessey's new work offers the most current and comprehensive coverage of the topic and is the only book on the market to include RISC architectures. The book is intended to teach a broader audience the fundamentals of computing including programs, operating systems, and compilers.
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.
