Hardware and Computer Organization
- Arnold Berger, University of Washington, USA
Instead of simply demonstrating how to design a computerâs hardware, it provides an understanding of the total machine, highlighting strengths and weaknesses, explaining how to deal with memory and how to write efficient assemble code that interacts with and takes best advantage of the underlying hardware.
Additionally, the book has a unique emphasis on facilitating the ability to make real engineering decisions in industry when working with anything from simple 8-bit microprocessors in embedded applications to PCs and workstations. It demystifies the link between the behaviour of the code and the operation of the machine, while helping engineers and students to better understand the limitations imposed by finite speed and resources.
This book is divided into three major sections:
Â· Part 1: Hardware Fundamentals and Digital Design
Â· Part 2: Assembly Language Programming
Â· Part 3: Computer Architecture
All disc-based content for this title is now available on the Web.
