Description

This text introduces computer engineering to engineering students. It discusses the principal issues of data representation and develops the basic logic circuits for data manipulation. It closely examines a conventional though simple computer, along with an assembler language suitable to its architecture and close to the IEEE-694 standard. The interplay of hardware design and software structure is stressed throughout, and is illustrated by examples ranging from string manipulation to input-output management. The text is distinguished by its clear, straightforward writing style, and is accompanied by a disk containing a logic circuit simulator, an assembler, and a computer simulator. The disk includes copies of all examples in the book, allowing further exploration of logic circuits and step-by-step examination of central processor operation.show more
