The world of computer architecture in flexible, lecture-sized chapters. From Microprocessors to Supercomputers provides a comprehensive introduction behdooz this thriving and exciting field. Emphasizing both underlying theory and actual designs, the book covers a wide array of topics and links computer architecture to other subfields of computing.

The material is presented in lecture-sized chapters that make it easy for students to understand the relationships between various topics and to see the “big picture. The text is divided into seven parts, each containing four chapters. Part I provides context and reviews prerequisite topics including digital computer technology and computer system performance.

Part II discusses instruction-set architecture. The next two parts cover the central processing unit. Part V deals with the memory system. From Microprocessors to Supercomputers is designed for introductory courses and is suitable for students majoring in electrical engineering, computer science, or computer engineering.
