Computer Systems Architecture: a Networking Approach (2nd Edition)

Buy

The new edition of Computer Systems Architecture has been brought up to date with extended descriptions of ARM and Itanium processors and an extended

introduction to the field of data communications.  Its established approach emphasizes that the vast majority of modern computers are not stand-alone devices, but cooperate with others in a networked environment.  Numerous practical exercises underline the importance of thoroughly understanding the hardware/software interaction to achieve optimum performance.

Highlights of the Second Edition include:

A new chapter on Distributed Computing, introducing parallel, cluster and grid configurations including IBM’s Cell processor;

A separate chapter on Intel’s 64-bit Itanium processor, a key architecture for the post-RISC era;

The ARM CPU is used as the primary example of microcontroller design;

Updated and expanded coverage of USB communications and ADSL broadband equipment;

New coverage of MPEG algorithms for audio and video compression in portable devices.

 Computer Systems Architecture is an ideal introductory text for students of Computer Science or Engineering, laying the foundations for more detailed courses on Networking.

 Dr Rob Williams is Head of the Computer Systems Technology School at the University of the West of England in Bristol, specializing in Real-Time systems.  He has also worked as a Microprocessor Systems Engineer for GWE/GKN, Marconi Avionics and Nexos Office Systems.

Fundamentals of Three-dimensional Digital Image Processing
Fundamentals of Three-dimensional Digital Image Processing
There are many areas of science and engineering where three-dimensional (3-D) discrete data are collected and analyzed, such as medical imaging and geoscience. To design and to prove the validity of computational procedures for processing and analysis of such data, the need for a mathematical theory and algorithms for image processing is essential....

Visual C++ 6: The Complete Reference
This book opens with a tour of how to use the sixth version of Microsoft's compiler. The author surveys the compiler's features and tools (including a reference to every available menu option) and discusses the basics of installing it and getting it up and running.

Next the authors introduce the basics of the C and C++ programming languages....

Algorithms for Visual Design Using the Processing Language
Algorithms for Visual Design Using the Processing Language
How has design changed through the use of computers? Is it still valid to assume that a designer is in control of a design concept? What if there is a lack of predictability over what was intended by the designer and what came out on the computer’s screen? Is computer programming necessary in design today?

This book is about

Programmable Controllers: Theory and Implementation
Programmable Controllers: Theory and Implementation
Since the first edition of this book in 1988, the capabilities of programmable logic controllers have grown by leaps and bounds. Likewise, the applications of PLCs have grown with them. In fact, in today’s increasingly computercontrolled environment, it is almost impossible to find a technical industry that does not use...
