Book Description

Review:
The performance of software systems is dramatically affected by how well software designers understand the basic hardware technologies at work in a system. Similarly, hardware designers must understand the far-reaching effects their design decisions have on software applications. For readers in either category, this classic introduction to the field provides a look deep into the computer. It demonstrates the relationships between the software and hardware and focuses on the foundational concepts that
are the basis for current computer design.

As with previous editions, a MIPS processor is the core used to present the fundamentals of hardware technologies at work in a computer system. The book presents an entire MIPS instruction setinstruction by instructionthe fundamentals of assembly language, computer arithmetic, pipelining, memory hierarchies, and I/O, and introduces the essentials of network and multiprocessor architectures.

A new aspect of the third edition is the explicit connection between program performance and CPU performance. The authors show how hardware and software componentssuch as the specific algorithm, programming language, compiler, instruction set architecture, and processor implementationimpact program performance. This edition also digs deeper into related hardware and software issues, offering specific material on the CD for readers with a hardware or software focus.

A CD provides a toolkit of simulators and compilers along with tutorials for using them.

Also by the same authors: Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach, Third Edition, the classic reference for computer systems analysis and design.
