The book is a comprehensive coverage of the architectural aspects and organizational features of computing systems. This text is intended primarily for graduate and undergraduate courses in computer science and electrical engineering curriculums.
The sequential processor is dealt with desirable features besides an exhaustive material on number systems, arithmetic logic unit and memory sub-systems in the first three chapters. Chapter 4 throws light on sample microprocessors and microprogramming finishing with microcomputer development systems (MDS). The keywords are presented at the end of each chapter appropriately for ease of readability.
The data flow mechanisms, multiprocessing with emphasis on SIMD class and fault tolerance have been included in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 begins discussing on parallel processing factors covering bitsliced processes and transporter technology, text processing and data communication and ends with notes on example fault tolerance systems. Finally, in Chapter 7, the co-processing is explained with Intel 8087 numeric processor example and digital signal processor suited to assembler environment also has been included. Problems are given at the end of every chapter.
