Discover the foundations of modern computing systems.

Explore computer development by examining the entire system, rather than an isolated facet. Beginning with a single transistor, follow the development of logic components, computing machines, and a simple CPU. Learn to interface with basic computer hardware by composing several programs and a minimal operating system for your personal computer. Finally, experiment with application design as you create an emulator for the hardware from the first part of the book.

Get started with ease.

From the Metal Up includes hands-on examples and additional online resources.
