The instruction sets of three commercial processors are introduced in chapter 3 - 68000, ARM, and Intel IA-32. The instruction sets are described in sufficient detail to enable students to write simple programs. A more complete description of these instruction sets is found in the appendices.
A new chapter on embedded-processor systems has been added. A generic design is used in giving a detailed implementation discussion of example applications.
Many recent technology and design advances have been added to the text. Examples include: the PCI I/O bus standard, plug and play and how it has influenced I/O architecture, and high-speed bit-serial ports in Chapter 4, and Flash and Rambus memory in chapter 5. Also, coverage of the role of pipelining and multiple functional units in processor design has been expanded significantly.
Chapter 2 is now a self-contained chapter introducing assembly language programming and machine instructions, describing their essential features. The presentation is in generic terms and does not reference any commercial machines. The focus is on key concepts and the use of simple examples.
This well-respected text for a first level course on computer organization has been thoroughly revised and updated. Computer Organization is suitable for a one-semester course in engineering or computer science programs and has a good mix if hardware- and software-oriented topics. The goal of the book is to illustrate the principles of computer organization by using a number of extensive examples drawn from commercially available computers. The authors feel this approach motivates the students and is the most practical. The machines discussed in Hamacher et. al. are the Motorola 680X0 and 683XX families, Intel 80X86 and Pentium families, ARM family, Sun Microsystems Sparc family, and DEC(Compaq) Alpha family. The 68000, Pentium, and ARM are used as detailed examples early in the book.
