Computer Architecture: Pipelined and Parallel Processor Design
This text on computer design aims at leading the field away from the notion of computer design as an art form and establishing it as a science. Available and current data have been synthesized into a consistent package designed for advanced students and professionals in the field. The criteria in selecting data was to choose that which a prudent engineer would use in designing a new system. The text begins with the purpose of bringing the audience together into a common framework and use of terms. The first chapter introduces basic concepts, definitions, terms and notions in instruction sets and machines. From here, the text moves to include a detailed presentation of pipelined processor design, the effects of cache on processor performance, and the effects of memory design decisions on processor and cache configurations.
