9780120884216: See MIPS Run: Second Edition (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Architecture and Design)

This second edition is not only a thorough update of the first edition, it is also a marriage of the best-known RISC architecture-MIPS-with the best-known open-source OS-Linux. The first part of the book begins with MIPS design principles and then describes the MIPS instruction set and programmers' resources. It uses the MIPS32 standard as a baseline (the 1st edition used the R3000) from which to compare all other versions of the architecture and assumes that MIPS64 is the main option. The second part is a significant change from the first edition. It provides concrete examples of operating system low level code, by using Linux as the example operating system. It describes how Linux is built on the foundations the MIPS hardware provides and summarizes the Linux application environment, describing the libraries, kernel device-drivers and CPU-specific code. It then digs deep into application code and library support, protection and memory management, interrupts in the Linux kernel and multiprocessor Linux. Sweetman has revised his best-selling MIPS bible for MIPS programmers, embedded systems designers, developers and programmers, who need an in-depth understanding of the MIPS architecture and specific guidance for writing software for MIPS-based systems, which are increasingly Linux-based.

Product Description:

Beginning with MIPS design principles, this book describes the MIPS instruction set and programmers resources. It uses the MIPS32 standard as a baseline from which to compare all other versions of the architecture and assumes that MIPS64 is the main option. It also provides examples of operating system low level code.

Review:

This book is a worhtwhile read for anyone interested in Linux on MIPS processors or even MIPS and RISC architecture in general.- James Mohr, Linux Magazine, April 2007

It retains the same engaging writing style that made the first edition so readable, reflecting the authors 20+ years experience in designing systems based on the MIPS architecture.
