This textbook presents the subject of computer architecture in a modern light to match the needs of educational institutions and graduates for modern industry. An embedded systems-relevant approach, this book addresses the needs of industry, inspires students in their studies, and interlinks with neighbouring electronics, computer engineering or computer science course within a typical curriculum. It is not just a computer architecture book with an extra chapter on embedded system, it looks at the computer architecture of today, which is built upon the foundation and history of bigger and older machines and drives toward greater levels of integration within embedded systems.
The text enhanced with may clear illustrations and worked examples.
The book culminates in a CPU design project containing everything necessary for the step-by-step design, simulation, test and programming of a simple embedded computer.
It covers the typical degree-level syllabus in an engaging and readable fashion.
