Featuring a strong emphasis on the fundamentals underlying contemporary logic design using hardware description languages, synthesis, and verification, this book focuses on the ever-evolving applications of basic computer design concepts with strong connections to real-world technology. Treatment of logic design, digital system design, and computer design. Ideal for self-study by engineers and computer scientists.
Based on the classic best-selling title Computer Engineering: Hardware Design (1988), this new text presents the fundamentals of hardware design and integrates state-of-the- art techniques and technologies in a smooth, easy-to-understand style with abundant use of examples to build understanding and problem-solving skills.
The text provides excellent preparation for courses in contemporary computer architecture and organization that emphasize system-level concepts but present only a cursory treatment of actual hardware design.
