Computer Architecture and Organization: An Integrated Approach exposes the inner workings of the modern digital computer at a level that demystifies the inner workings of the machine for undergraduate students. The text covers topics normally found in a first course in computer architecture or computer organization and places the beginning student on a solid track for continuing studies in computer-related disciplines.

From the Back Cover:

An accessible introduction to computer systems and architecture

Anyone aspiring to more advanced studies in computer-related fields must gain an understanding of the two parallel aspects of the modern digital computer: programming methodology and the underlying machine architecture. The uniquely integrated approach of Computer Architecture and Organization connects the programmer’s view of a computer system with the associated hardware and peripheral devices, providing a thorough, three-dimensional view of what goes on inside the machine.

Covering all the major topics normally found in a first course in computer architecture, the text focuses on the essentials including the instruction set architecture (ISA), network-related issues, and programming methodology. Using “real world” case studies to put the information into perspective, the chapters examine:

  • Data representation
  • Arithmetic
  • The instruction set architecture
  • Datapath and Control
  • Languages and the machine
  • Memory
  • Buses and peripherals
  • Networking and communication
  • Advanced computer architecture

A valuable feature of this book is the use of ARC, a subset of the SPARC processor, for an instruction set architecture. A platform-independent ARCTools suite, containing an assembler and simulator for the ARC ISA, that supports the examples used in the book is available. Better yet, the content is supplemented by online problem sets available through WileyPlus.

Balanced and thoughtfully designed for use as either a classroom text or self-study guide, Computer Architecture and Organization: An Integrated Approach will put you solidly on track for advancing to higher levels in computer-related disciplines.
