PowerPC Microprocessor Common Hardware Reference Platform
This book defines the architecture requirements and minimum system requirements for a computer system that is designed to become an open industry standard. These requirements provide a description of the devices, interfaces, and data formats required to design and build a PowerPC-based computer. This standard is designed to provide software compatibility for several operating environments. Systems built to these requirements can use industry-standard components currently found in IBM-compatible and Apple Macintosh personal computers. These systems are expected to run various future versions of operating systems including Apple Mac OS, IBM AIX and PowerPC Editions of IBM OS/2 Warp Connect, Microsoft Windows NT Workstation, Novell Netware, and SunSoft Solaris. This book is the primary source of information for anyone developing a hardware platform, an operating system, or hardware component to be part of these standard systems. It describes the hardware-to-operating-system interface that is essential to anyone building hardware platforms and provides the minimum system configurations that platform designers must meet when building a standard platform. Component manufacturers require this information to produce compatible chips and adapters to use on these platforms, and software developers require the information on mandatory functions and documented interfaces. The architecture is intended to support a range of PowerPC microprocessor-based system implementations including portable, desktop, and server class systems, and allows multiple operating-system implementations across a wide range of environments and functions. This enables new hardware and software enhancements that are necessary for the development of improved user interfaces, higher performance, and broader operating environments.

Computer Systems Architecture
Computer Systems Architecture provides IT professionals and students with the necessary understanding of computer hardware. It addresses the ongoing issues related to computer hardware and discusses the solutions supplied by the industry. The book describes trends in computing solutions that led to the current available infrastructures, tracing the initial need for computers to recent concepts such as the Internet of Things. It covers computers' data representation, explains how computer architecture and its underlying meaning changed over the years, and examines the implementations and performance enhancements of the central processing unit (CPU). It then discusses the organization, hierarchy, and performance considerations of computer memory as applied by the operating system and illustrates how cache memory significantly improves performance. The author proceeds to explore the bus system, algorithms for ensuring data integrity, input and output (I/O) components, methods for performing I/O, various aspects relevant to software engineering, and nonvolatile storage devices, such as hard drives and technologies for enhancing performance and reliability. He also describes virtualization and cloud computing and the emergence of software-based systems' architectures. Accessible to software engineers and developers as well as students in IT disciplines, this book enhances readers' understanding of the hardware infrastructure used in software engineering projects. It enables readers to better optimize system usage by focusing on the principles used in hardware systems design and the methods for enhancing performance.

Hardware and Software, Verification and Testing
The Haifa Verification Conference 2006 took place for the second year in a row at the IBM Haifa Research Lab and at the Haifa University in Israel during October 2326, 2006. The verification conference was a three-day, single-track conference followed by a one-day tutorial on PSL. This Haifa Verification Conference was established to bring together researchers from two different disciplines, hardware verification and software testing. The use of similar techniques among the two communities enabled the conference to help generate a unique synergy that fortifies both groups. This year, we had two traditional tracks, hardware verification and software testing, in addition to a new track dedicated to tools in these areas. The conference emphasized applicability to real-world challenges, which was vital to the many attendees coming from industry. The conference hosted two internationally recognized individuals as keynote speakers. Randal E. Bryant, Dean and University Professor from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University gave a talk on System Modeling and Formal Verification with UCLID and Michael Jackson from the University of Newcastle gave a talk on Testing the Machine in the World. The numerous invited speakers presented topics of great interest to the audience. Just some of these outstanding speakers included Cindy Eisner in the hardware verification track, Alon Gluska and Andrew Piziali in the tools track, and Mauro Pezze and Nir Shavit in the software testing track.
