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.
