A Guide to RISC Microprocessors
This is a collection of articles on RISC microprocessors which appeared in "Microprocessor Report" from February 1988 through February 1991. The essays provide a technical overview with specifications, advantages and drawbacks for each chip. Features include sections on each major system: SPARC, MIPS, Motorola 88000, Intel 960, and AMD 29000. The book is intended for computer design engineers, both hardware and software.
