Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Completely updated and revised throughout, the fourth edition of Principles of Computer Hardware explores the fundamentals of computer structure, architecture, and programming.

The book opens with an introduction to the fundamental concepts behind computer architecture: gates, circuits, logic, and computer arithmetic. It goes on to discuss computer operation from instruction set architecture and assembly language programming to the central processing unit. Then, the text builds on these foundations; explaining how the hardware interfaces with its surroundings, introducing computer memory, operating systems, and computer peripherals.

With clear, concise explanations throughout, Principles of Computer Hardware, Fourth Edition, is ideal for undergraduate courses in computer architecture.

Synopsis:

This book explores the fundamentals of computer structure, and the architecture.

Synopsis:

Ideal for courses in computer hardware, architecture, or digital design, The Principles of Computer Hardware, 3/e, provides a comprehensive introduction to the subject. In Alan Clement's noted student-friendly style, it covers core topics including Boolean algebra and logic design; number bases and binary arithmetic; the CPU; assembly language; memory systems; and input/output methods and devices. It then continues with a discussion of the related topics of computer peripherals, the hardware aspects of the operating system, and data communications. This accessible text covers both the 68000 and ARM architectures in a tutorial/lab-based style suitable for a variety of courses. All chapters in this third edition have been rigorously updated. Powerful new Windows-based simulation software allows students to visualize the design of digital circuits. The chapter on RISC has been completely rewritten to include the ARM computer, and the tutorial-based introduction to assembly language now includes many examples.
