Computer system architecture
Focused primarily on hardware design and organization and the impact of software on the architecture this volume first covers the basic organization, design, and programming of a simple digital computer, then explores the separate functional units in detail. FEATURES: develops an elementary computer to demonstrate by example the organization and design of digital computers. uses a simple register transfer language to specify various computer operations.
