Abstract:

[This book] demonstrates the relationships between the software and hardware and focuses on the foundational concepts that are the basis for current computer design ... A MIPS processor is the core used to present the fundamentals of hardware technologies at work in a computer system. The book presents an entire MIPS instruction set - instruction by instruction - the fundamentals of assembly language, computer arithmetic, pipelining, memory hierarchies, and I/O, and introduces the essentials of network and multiprocessor architectures.-Back cover. The audience for this book includes those with little experience in assembly language or logic design who need to understand basic computer organization as well as readers with backgrounds in assembly language and/or logic design who want to learn how to design a computer or understand how a system works and why it performs as it does.-Pref.
