Computer Organization provides a practical overview to the subject of computer organization, which delves into the internal structure of computers.
Summary Of The Book
Computer Organization is an introductory text on computer organization that provides a practical overview of the subject. It does so by discussing the design of some of the leading computers available in the market today. The computers taken up in the book include those from the Motorola 680X0 and 683XX families, Intel 80X86 and Pentium families, ARM family, Sun Microsystems Sparc family, and DEC (Compaq) Alpha family.
The book is useful for a first-level course on the subject. It discusses issues such as Basic Structure of Computers, The Memory System, Input/Output Organization, Basic Processing Unit, Computer Peripherals, and Pipelining, among others. It comes with as many as five appendices, which cover the instruction sets of some of the computers discussed and other useful references.
