Overview

"Preserving the same popular structure found in the previous four editions of this best-selling book, Andrew Tanenbaum teaches that a computer can be structured as a hierarchy of levels. In this book he covers them all, including the digital logic level, the microarchitecture level, the instruction set architecture level, the operating system machine level and the assembly language level." "The Fifth Edition has also been updated in many ways, such as the use of new running examples: the Pentium 4, the UltraSPARC III, and Intel 8051. The 8051 was chosen because it powers many small household appliances these days. The chapter on parallel computers has also been heavily revised to reflect new developments." This edition is further enhanced with a hands-on, how-to guide to assembly language programming using the 8088 assembler, simulator, and tracer. The CD-ROM provides the 80888 tracer software for MS Windows, UNIX and Linux, along with a graphical simulator for the Mic-1 architecture described in Chapter 4.

Completely updated, this book explains how computer designers can follow the structured model to develop efficient hardware and software systems. New information has been included on UNIX, OS/2, INTEL 8088/80286/80386, Motorola 68000/68020/68030 and RISC machine. The operation of a typical IBM PC clone is now described in detail at the chip level.

This textbook for undergraduate students breaks down the architecture of a computer system into a hierarchy of distinct levels: digital logic, microprogramming, conventional machine, operating system machine, and assembly language. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Meet the Author

Andrew S. Tanenbaum has a B.S. Degree from M.I.T. and a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. He is currently a Professor of Computer Science at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, where he heads the Computer Systems Group. Until 2005, he was the Dean of the Advanced School for Computing and Imaging, an inter-university graduate school doing research on advanced parallel, distributed, and imaging systems.

In the past, he has done research on compilers, operating systems, networking, and local-area distributed systems. His current research focuses primarily on the design of wide-area distributed systems that scale to a billion users. These research projects have led to five books and over 85 referred papers in journals and conference proceedings.

Prof. Tanenbaum has also produced a considerable volume of software. He was the principal architect of the Amsterdam Compiler Kit, a widely-used toolkit for writing portable compilers, as well as of MINIX, a small UNIX clone intended for use in student programming labs. Together with his Ph.D. students and programmers, he helped design the Amoeba distributed operating system, a high-performance microkernel-based distributed operating system. The MINIX and Amoeba systems are now available for free via the Internet..

Prof. Tanenbaum is a Fellow of the ACM, a Fellow of the IEEE, a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, winner of the 1994 ACM Karl V. Karlstrom Outstanding Educator Award, and winner of the 1997 ACM/SIGCSE Award for Outstanding Contributions to Computer Science Education. He is also listed in Who’s Who in the World.

Todd Austin is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. His research interests include computer architecture, reliable system design, hardware and software verification, and performance analysis tools and techniques. Prior to joining academia, Todd was a Senior Computer Architect in Intel's Microcomputer Research Labs , a product-oriented research laboratory in Hillsboro, Oregon. Todd is the first to take credit (but the last to accept blame) for creating the SimpleScalar Tool Set, a popular collection of computer architecture performance analysis tools. In addition to his work in academia, Todd is co-founder of SimpleScalar LLC and InTempo Design LLC. In 2002, Todd was a Sloan Research Fellow , and in 2007 he received the ACM Maurice Wilkes Award for "for innovative contributions in Computer Architecture including the SimpleScalar Toolkit and the DIVA and Razor architectures." Todd received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin in 1996.
