Review

From the reviews:

"The first impression is that the book tries to cover all aspects of computer design. ¡­ To summarize, the book lives up to its title. It is a practical and interesting introduction to computer architecture. ¡­ It is a good reference book that could be used as a guide in a computer architecture curriculum." (Javier Castillo, ACM Computing Reviews, August, 2009)

¡°Page ¡­ has tried to include ¡®topics every computer science student should have at least a basic grasp of.¡¯ ¡­ The book is clearly written and technically accurate. The exercises are good, with extensive solutions provided. The volume admirably serves its goal of offering a comprehensive introduction to computer science. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates, two-year technical program students, research/faculty, practitioners, and general readers.¡± (C. Vickery, Choice, Vol. 47 (4), December, 2009)



Product Description

This book blends traditional teaching approaches with the use of mathematics, together with the use of a hardware description language and a concrete processor as vehicles for "hands-on" modelling and experimenting with digital logic and processor design. This unique approach encourages readers to derive their own conclusions via experimentation, enabling them to discover for themselves the fundamental and exciting topics of computer architecture. Features: includes a wide-ranging introductory chapter; outlines basic methods for evaluating processors; investigates advanced topics in processor design; presents a detailed description of a development tool-chain; provides a stand-alone tutorial on using SPIM; focuses on aspects of compilers which are closely tied to the processor; examines the concept of efficient programming; concludes every chapter with a set of example problems. This practical, reader-friendly textbook has been written with undergraduates in mind, and is suitable for self-study.
