Computer architecture and organization

by Miles J. Murdocca | 20 March 2007
Hardback
Category: Computer Hardware
Synopsis
An accessible introduction to computer systems andarchitecture Anyone aspiring to more advanced studies in computer-related fieldsmust gain an understanding of the two parallel aspects of themodern digital computer: programming methodology and the underlyingmachine architecture. The uniquely integrated approach of ComputerArchitecture and Organization connects the programmer's view of acomputer system with the associated hardware and peripheraldevices, providing a thorough, three-dimensional view of what goeson inside the machine. Covering all the major topics normally found in a first course incomputer architecture, the text focuses on the essentials includingthe instruction set architecture (ISA), network-related issues, andprogramming methodology. Using "real world" case studies to put theinformation 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 theSPARC processor, for an instruction set architecture. Aplatform-independent ARCTools suite, containing an assembler andsimulator for the ARC ISA, that supports the examples used in thebook is available. Better yet, the content is supplemented byonline problem sets available through WileyPlus. Balanced and thoughtfully designed for use as either a classroomtext or self-study guide, Computer Architecture and Organization:An Integrated Approach will put you solidly on track for advancingto higher levels in computer-related disciplines. About the Author: MILES MURDOCCAserves as the President and CEO of Internet InstituteUSA (IIUSA), a private postsecondary information technology (IT)school specializing in networking, operating systems, IP telephony,programming, and security. Previously, Dr. Murdocca has been acomputer science faculty member at Rutgers University and aresearch scientist at AT&T Bell Laboratories working incomputer architecture, networking, and digital optical computing.He is the author of A Digital Design Methodology for OpticalComputing and Principles of Computer Architecture and acontributing author to Computer Systems Design and Architecture,Second Edition as well as the author of dozens of professionalpapers and patents relating to information technology. VINCE HEURING is an associate professor and acting chair of theDepartment of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Universityof Colorado at Boulder. He has been at the university since 1984,and prior to that he spent three years at the University ofCincinnati. Professor Heuring's research encompasses computerarchitectures and programming language design implementation. Heand his colleague, Harry Jordan, designed and built the world'sfirst stored program optical computer, "SPOC."
