Hardware and Computer Organization
Hardware and Computer Organization is a practical introduction to the architecture of modern microprocessors. This book from the bestselling author explains how PCs work and how to make them work for you. It is designed to take students "under the hood" of a PC and provide them with an understanding of the complex machine that has become such a pervasive part of everyday life. It clearly explains how hardware and software cooperatively interact to accomplish real-world tasks. Unlike other textbooks on this topic, Dr. Berger's book takes the software developer's point-of-view. Instead of simply demonstrating how to design a computer's hardware, it provides an understanding of the total machine, highlighting strengths and weaknesses, explaining how to deal with memory and how to write efficient assembly code that interacts directly with, and takes best advantage of the underlying hardware. The book is divided into three major sections: Part 1 covers hardware and computer fundamentals, including logical gates and simple digital design. Elements of hardware development such as instruction set architecture, memory and I/O organization and analog to digital conversion are examined in detail, within the context of modern operating systems. Part 2 discusses the software at the lowest level assembly language, while Part 3 introduces the reader to modern computer architectures and reflects on future trends in reconfigurable hardware. This book is an ideal reference for ECE/software engineering students as well as embedded systems designers, professional engineers needing to understand the fundamentals of computer hardware, and hobbyists. The renowned author's many years in industry provide an excellent basis for the inclusion of extensive real-world references and insights Several modern processor architectures are covered, with examples taken from each, including Intel, Motorola, MIPS, and ARM

Computer Hardware Description Languages and their Applications
Hardware description languages (HDLs) have established themselves as one of the principal means of designing electronic systems. The interest in and usage of HDLs continues to spread rapidly, driven by the increasing complexity of systems, the growth of HDL-driven synthesis, the research on formal design methods and many other related advances. This research-oriented publication aims to make a strong contribution to further developments in the field. The following topics are explored in depth: BDD-based system design and analysis; system level formal verification; formal reasoning on hardware; languages for protocol specification; VHDL; HDL-based design methods; high level synthesis; and text/graphical HDLs. There are short papers covering advanced design capture and recent work in high level synthesis and formal verification. In addition, several invited presentations on key issues discuss and summarize recent advances in real time system design, automatic verification of sequential circuits and languages for protocol specification.

Computer-Hardware Evaluation of Mathematical Functions
Computer-Hardware Evaluation of Mathematical Functions provides a thorough up-to-date understanding of the methods used in computer hardware for the evaluation of mathematical functions: reciprocals, square-roots, exponentials, logarithms, trigonometric functions, hyperbolic functions, etc. It discusses how the methods are derived, how they work, and how well they work. The methods are divided into four core themes: CORDIC, normalization, table look-up, and polynomial approximations. In each case, the author carefully considers the mathematical derivation and basis of the relevant methods, how effective they are (including mathematical errors analysis), and how they can be implemented in hardware. This book is an excellent resource for any student or researcher seeking a comprehensive, yet easily understandable, explanation of how computer chips evaluate mathematical functions. Contents: Errors, Range-Reduction, and Rounding; Redundant Representations and High-Speed Arithmetic; CORDIC; High-Performance CORDIC; Normalization Algorithms; Polynomial and Rational-Function Approximations; Table Lookup and Segmented Polynomial Approximations; Reciprocals, Square Roots, and Inverse Square Roots. Readership: Graduate and undergraduate students and researchers interested in the hardware and software aspects of computer chips. Keywords:Computer Arithmetic;Elementary Functions;Computer Architecture Key Features: First full-length book on the subject; Contains up-to-date information; Detailed and easy to use

Computer, Network, Software, and Hardware Engineering with Applications
There are many books on computers, networks, and software engineering but none that integrate the three with applications . Integration is important because, increasingly, software dominates the performance, reliability, maintainability, and availability of complex computer and systems. Books on software engineering typically portray software as if it exists in a vacuum with no relationship to the wider system. This is wrong because a system is more than software. It is comprised of people, organizations, processes, hardware, and software. All of these components must be considered in an integrative fashion when designing systems. On the other hand, books on computers and networks do not demonstrate a deep understanding of the intricacies of developing software. In this book you will learn, for example, how to quantitatively analyze the performance, reliability, maintainability, and availability of computers, networks, and software in relation to the total system . Furthermore, you will learn how to evaluate and mitigate the risk of deploying integrated systems. You will learn how to apply many models dealing with the optimization of systems. Numerous quantitative examples are provided to help you understand and interpret model results. This book can be used as a first year graduate course in computer, network, and software engineering; as an on-the-job reference for computer, network, and software engineers; and as a reference for these disciplines.
