About the Book: Computer Architecture The book emphasizes both underlying theory and actual designs,and covers a wide array of topics and links computer architectureto other subfields of computing. Computer Architecture: From Microprocessors to Supercomputersprovides a comprehensive introduction to this thriving and excitingfield. Emphasizing both underlying theory and actual designs, thebook covers a wide array of topics and links computer architectureto other subfields of computing. The material is presented inlecture-sized chapters that make it easy for students to understandthe relationships between various topics and to see the ybigpicture. The short chapters also allow instructors to order topicsin the course as they like. The text is divided into seven parts,each containing four chapters. Part I provides context and reviewsprerequisite topics including digital computer technology andcomputer system performance. Part II discusses instruction-setarchitecture. The next two parts cover the central processing unit.Part III describes the structure of arithmetic/logic units and PartIV is devoted to data path and control circuits. Part V deals withthe memory system. Part VI covers input/output and interfacingtopics and Part VII introduces advanced architectures. Contents Preface PART 1: Background And Motivation 1.
