Computer Architecture



By John Y. Hsu


Software aspects, Coding & Hardware


Describes Pentium processor architecture
Offers extensive coverage of microprogrammed CPU design
Covers a foundation-set of ideas, design concepts, and applications
Contains summary points, problems, and software exercises in each chapter
Combines computer engineering with electrical engineering to offer the detail of how logic circuits are designed in a CPUAppropriate as an undergraduate text for computer architecture courses. Preferably, readers should be familiar with at least one programming language and Boolean algebra.

With the new developments in computer architecture, fairly recent publications can quickly become outdated. Computer Architecture: Software Aspects, Coding, and Hardware takes a modern approach. This comprehensive, practical text provides that critical understanding of a central processor by clearly detailing fundamentals, and cutting edge design features. With its balanced software/hardware perspective and its description of Pentium processors, the book allows readers to acquire practical PC software experience. The text presents a foundation-level set of ideas, design concepts, and applications that fully meet the requirements of computer organization and architecture courses.

The book features a "bottom up" computer design approach, based upon the author's thirty years experience in both academe and industry. By combining computer engineering with electrical engineering, the author describes how logic circuits are designed in a CPU. The extensive coverage of a micprogrammed CPU and new processor design features gives the insight of current computer development.

Computer Architecture: Software Aspects, Coding, and Hardware presents a comprehensive review of the subject, from beginner to advanced levels. Topics include:

o Two's complement numbers
