Computer Systems Organization and Architecture provides up-to-date coverage of fundamental concepts for the design of computer and their subsystems. Professor John Carpinelli presents material in this book in the same way he does in his classroom-by using simple examples to help readers understand concepts without getting bogged down in details. To make the material accessible to all readers, he has included two examples of increasing complexity: the Very Simple CPU which contains four instructions to illustrate very simple CPU design, and the somewhat more complex Relatively Simple CPU that builds upon the same design techniques and introduces some more advanced techniques.

Contents Digital logic fundamentals Introduction to finite state machines Instruction set architectures Introduction to computer organization Register transfer languages CPU design Microsequencer control unit design Computer arithmetic Memory organization Input/output organization Advanced Topics Introduction to parallel processing
- Uses a finite state machine approach to provide a clear understanding of how the CPU performs a sequence of operations to fetch, decode, and execute instructions
- Covers completely the design of computer systems, including memory hierarchies, input/output processing, interrupts and direct memory access, as well as advanced architectural aspects of parallel processing.
- Integrates open-ended design problems throughout the book to encourage readers to think through the design process
- Contains extensive examples of real-world components and systems such as the Itanium microprocessor and cache and virtual memory management in Windows computer, and commodity used standards like the IEEE 754 Floating Point Standard and the Universal Serial Bus Standard
- Provides -Practical Perspective- sidebars to help readers understand why systems are designed the way they are by applying them to real systems
- Includes access to a CPU Simulator which animates the flow of data within the CPU to give readers unique insight into how the CPU works
