Ideal for a course in computer hardware, architecture, or digital design in departments of computer science and engineering, The Principles of Computer Hardware, 3/E, provides a comprehensive introduction to the subject. In Alan Clements noted student-friendly style, this text covers both the 68000 and ARM architectures and in a tutorial or lab-based style suitable for a variety of courses. The third edition has been significantly improved with all chapters having been rigorously updated. Powerful new simultation software has been added which allows the student to visualize digital designs. The chapter on RISC has been completely rewritten to include the ARM computer. The tutorial based introduction to assembly language now includes many examples.
