Computer architecture a quantitative approach by John L Hennessy( Book )
139 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 3,695 libraries worldwide
The era of seemingly unlimited growth in processor performance is over: single chip architectures can no longer overcome the performance limitations imposed by the power they consume and the heat they generate. Today, Intel and other semiconductor firms are abandoning the single fast processor model in favor of multi-core microprocessors--chips that combine two or more processors in a single package. In the fourth edition of Computer Architecture, the authors focus on this historic shift, increasing their coverage of multiprocessors and exploring the most effective ways of achieving parallelism as the key to unlocking the power of multiple processor architectures. Additionally, the new edition has expanded and updated coverage of design topics beyond processor performance, including power, reliability, availability, and dependability

In addition to thoroughly updating every aspect of the text to reflect the most current computing technology, the third edition uses standard 32-bit MIPS 32 as the primary teaching ISA. It presents the assembler-to-HLL translations in both C and Java. It highlights the latest developments in architecture in Real Stuff sections such as: Intel IA-32; Power PC 604; Googles PC cluster; Pentium P4; SPEC CPU2000 benchmark suite for processors; SPEC Web99 benchmark for web servers; EEMBC benchmark for embedded systems; AMD Opteron memory hierarchy; and AMD vs. 1A-64. It includes new support for distinct course goals, and many of the adopters who have used our book throughout its two editions are refining their courses with a greater hardware or software focus.; We have provided new material to support these course goals: new material to support a Hardware Focus; using logic design conventions; designing with hardware description languages; advanced pipelining; designing with FPGAs; HDL simulators and tutorials; Xilinx CAD tools; new material to support a Software Focus; how compilers Work; how to optimize compilers; how to implement object oriented languages; MIPS simulator and tutorial; and history sections on programming languages, compilers, operating systems and databases. What's new in the "Third Edition"? There are new pedagogical features such as: Understanding Program Performance analyzes key performance issues from the programmers perspective; Check Yourself Questions helps students assess their understanding of key points of a section Computers; In the Real World illustrates the diversity of applications of computing technology beyond traditional desktop and servers; For More Practice provides students with additional problems they can tackle; In More Depth presents new information and challenging exercises for the advanced student.; The new reference features highlighted glossary terms and definitions that appear on the book page, as bold-faced entries in the index, and as a separate and searchable reference on the CD. A complete index of the material in the book and on the CD appears in the printed index and the CD includes a fully searchable version of the same index. Historical Perspectives and Further Readings have been updated and expanded to include the history of software RandD. CD-Library provides materials collected from the web which directly support the text. It is on the CD CD-Bars.; Full length sections that are introduced in the book and presented on the CD CD-Appendixes: The entire set of appendixes CD-Library; Materials collected from the web which directly support the text CD-Exercises: For More Practice provides exercises and solutions for self-study; In More Depth presents new information and challenging exercises for the advanced or curious student Glossary: Terms that are defined in the text are collected in this searchable reference; Further Reading: References are organized by the chapter they support Software: HDL simulators, MIPS simulators, and FPGA design tools; Tutorials: SPIM, Verilog, and VHDL; and Additional Support: Processor Models, Labs, Homeworks. Index covering the book and CD includes contents such as: Instructor Support - Instructor Support is provided in a password-protected site to adopters who request the password from our sales representative; Solutions to all the exercises; Figures from the book in a number of formats; Lecture slides prepared by the authors and other instructors; and Lecture notes For instructor resources click on the grey "companion site" button found on the right side of this page.; This new edition represents a major revision. It includes features such as: entire Text has been updated to reflect new technology; 70 per cent new exercises; includes a CD loaded with software, projects and exercises to support courses using a number of tools; a new interior design presents defined terms in the margin for quick reference; a new feature, Understanding Program Perform
Information technology for counterterrorism immediate actions and future possibilities by National Research Council (U.S.)( file )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,838 libraries worldwide
Information technology (IT) is essential to virtually all of the nation s critical infrastructures making them vulnerable by a terrorist attack on their IT system. An attack could be on the system itself or use the IT system to launch or exacerbate another type of attack. IT can also be used as a counterterrorism tool. The report concludes that the most devastating consequences of a terrorist attack would occur if it were on or used IT as part of a broader attack. The report presents two recommendations on what can be done in the short term to protect the nation s communications and information systems and several recommendations about what can be done over the longer term. The report also notes the importance of considering how an IT system will be deployed to maximize protection against and usefulness in responding to attacks

"In this lively and informative presentation, Bill Gates brings us up-to-date with where the computer industry is going from where it is today. Expanding on his belief that we are "really just at the beginning" he shares with us his goals for the current decade : advances in networking and application interactivity, increases in reliability and ease of use and improvements in productivity as information sharing becomes more and more efficient. During a candid question and answer session fielded by John Hennessy, Gates covers issues ranging from intellectual property protection, to limitations on broadband access, to privacy and security concerns"--Conteneur

High performance microprocessor architectures by Randy H Katz( Book )
4 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 10 libraries worldwide
Abstract: "Single chip processor performance has improved dramatically since the inception of the four-bit microprocessor in 1971. This is due in part to technological advances, (i.e., faster devices and greater device density), but also because of the adoption of architectural approaches well suited to the opportunities and limitations of VLSI. The most appropriate are those that effectively reduce off-chip memory accesses and admit of a regular pipelined implementation. The overriding goal of pipelining is to achieve 'single cycle execution, ' i.e., instructions appear to execute in a single processor cycle. Today's RISC processors are close to realizing this goal, and the next generation will reduce the cycles per instruction even further
