This print textbook is available for students to rent for their classes. The Pearson print rental program provides students with affordable access to learning materials, so they come to class ready to succeed. For graduate and undergraduate courses in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering. Comprehensively covers processor and computer design fundamentals Computer Organization and Architecture, 11th Edition is about the structure and function of computers. Its purpose is to present, as clearly and completely as possible, the nature and characteristics of modern-day computer systems. Written in a clear, concise, and engaging style, author William Stallings provides a thorough discussion of the fundamentals of computer organization and architecture and relates these to contemporary design issues. Subjects such as I/O functions and structures, RISC, and parallel processors are thoroughly explored alongside real-world examples that enhance the text and build student interest. Incorporating brand-new material and strengthened pedagogy, the 11th Edition keeps students up to date with recent innovations and improvements in the field of computer organization and architecture.
Comprehensive coverage spans the entire computer design field • Utilizes a top-down approach–computer system, processor, control unit– for clarity and ease of use. The objective is to present the material in a fashion that keeps new material in a clear context. • Systems are viewed from both the architectural and organizational structure perspectives to help students gain a comprehensive overview of computer design. • A unified treatment of I/O provides a full understanding of I/O functions and structures, including discussions of DMA, direct cache access, and external interfaces. • A focus on multicore gives students a broad understanding of this technology, found in virtually all contemporary machines. • A thorough discussion of instruction sets, including a new chapter on assembly language. • Detailed use of specific examples throughout the book to illustrate concepts, including Intel x86, ARM embedded system architecture, and IBM z13 mainframe. Hands-on experience reinforces concepts from the text • Homework problems, case studies, and additional student resources enhance their understanding of the material. • Projects and other student exercises are richly supported with a variety of research, simulation, and assembly language projects that instructors can use to tailor a course plan. • Over 20 interactive simulations illustrate computer architecture design issues, providing a powerful tool for understanding the complex design features of a modern computer system. Chapter updates keep the text current • Several chapters and discussions have been revised for the 11th Edition, including: o New - A discussion of multichip modules (MCMs), has been added to Chapter 1. o Updated - Updated treatment of SPEC benchmarks in Chapter 2 covers the new SPEC CPU2017 benchmark suite. o New - A chapter on memory hierarchy expands on material that was in the cache memory chapter and adds expanded coverage of both the principle of locality and the memory hierarchy. o Revised - The cache memory chapter (Chapter 5) now includes expanded treatment of logical cache organization, including new figures, to improve overall clarity. o New - Coverage of content-addressable memory, write allocate, and no write allocate policies have been added to Chapter 5. o New - A section on the increasingly popular Embedded DRAM, or eDRAM, is included in Chapter 6.
