Superscalar Microprocessors Design (Prentice Hall Series in Innovative Technology)by Bill Johnson
Synopses & Reviews
The term superscalar describes a computer architecture that achieves performance by concurrent execution of scalar instructions. Superscalar architectures represent the next step in the evolution of microprocessors. This book is intended as a technical tutorial and introduction for engineers & computer scientists. The book concentrates on reduced instruction set (RISC) processors.
Book News Annotation:
A technical tutorial and introduction for engineers and computer scientists or a graduate-level text for students with a strong background in computer architecture and familiarity with reduced instruction sets. Surveys the current issues involved in applying the superscalar techniques used in large scientific processors to general use microprocessors.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Intended for engineers, computer scientists and graduate students with a strong background in computer architecture, this technical tutorial concentrates mostly on reduced-instruction-set (RISC) processors, but also deals with complex instruction-set (CISC) processors.
