Author: Harold Lorin
An introduction to the nature of computer architecture and organization. Presents interesting problems with elegant solutions, with emphasis on the abstract elements of the problems common to all computer design. Addresses the several schools of thought on what constitutes a ``good'' computer architecture, focusing on the current RISC versus non-RISC approaches. Also discusses the downward drift of design sophistication to smaller machines, such as pipelines, caches, and overlapped I/O. Includes many examples of specific machines and the design philosophy behind them.

An Integrated Approach
Author: Miles J. Murdocca,Vincent P. Heuring
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. About the Author: MILES MURDOCCAserves as the President and CEO of Internet Institute USA (IIUSA), a private postsecondary information technology (IT) school specializing in networking, operating systems, IP telephony, programming, and security. Previously, Dr. Murdocca has been a computer science faculty member at Rutgers University and a research scientist at AT&T Bell Laboratories working in computer architecture, networking, and digital optical computing. He is the author of A Digital Design Methodology for Optical Computing and Principles of Computer Architecture and a contributing author to Computer Systems Design and Architecture, Second Edition as well as the author of dozens of professional papers and patents relating to information technology. VINCE HEURING is an associate professor and acting chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

"The author begins by describing the classic von Neumann architecture and then presents in detail a number of performance models and evaluation techniques. He goes on to cover user instruction set design, including RISC architecture. A unique feature of the book is its memory-centric approach - memory systems are discussed before processor implementations. The author also deals with pipelined processors, input/output techniques, queuing modes, and extended instruction set architectures. Each topic is illustrated with reference to actual IBM and Intel architectures."--Jacket.

Mit der deutschen Übersetzung zur fünfter Auflage des amerikanischen Klassikers Computer Organization and Design - The Hardware/Software Interface ist das Standardwerk zur Rechnerorganisation wieder auf dem neusten Stand - David A. Patterson und John L. Hennessy gewähren die gewohnten Einblicke in das Zusammenwirken von Hard- und Software, Leistungseinschätzungen und zahlreicher Rechnerkonzepte in einer Tiefe, die zusammen mit klarer Didaktik und einer eher lockeren Sprache den Erfolg dieses weltweit anerkannten Standardwerks begründen. Patterson und Hennessy achten darauf, nicht nur auf das "Wie" der dargestellten Konzepte, sondern auch auf ihr "Warum" einzugehen und zeigen damit Gründe für Veränderungen und neue Entwicklungen auf. Jedes der Kapitel steht für einen deutlich umrissenen Teilbereich der Rechnerorganisation und ist jeweils gleich aufgebaut: Eine Einleitung, gefolgt von immer tiefgreifenderen Grundkonzepten mit steigernder Komplexität. Darauf eine aktuelle Fallstudie, "Fallstricke und Fehlschlüsse", Zusammenfassung und Schlussbetrachtung, historische Perspektiven und Literaturhinweise sowie Aufgaben. In der neuen Auflage sind die Inhalte in den Kapiteln 1-5 an vielen Stellen punktuell verbessert und aktualisiert, mit der Vorstellung neuerer Prozessoren worden, und der Kapitel 6... from Client to Cloud wurde stark überarbeitetUmfangreiches Zusatzmaterial (Werkzeuge mit Tutorien etc.) stehtOnline zur Verfügung.
