This book presents state-of-the-art with a unique balance among the theoretical principles, design approaches and practical implementation of the computer architecture and organization. Covers history, theory and practice of computer architecture from a minimalist perspective. All the traditional topics including the principles of digital computer organization, processor organization, memory organization, I/O organization with numerous types of mostly-used popular ports, and control organization are covered with detailed diagrams. The conceptual second half of this book dealing with Risc Processor Architecture, Pipeline Architecture and Parallel Architecture including supercomputers makes this book unique and interesting. The author explains all these principles with illustrative examples of architecture of a lot of computer systems ranging from micro to mini, supermini, mainframes and even supercomputers with commodity microprocessors. The prime focus is placed on synthesis by exploring the relationship among the architecture of different resources of the computer system.
