Computer Systems Architecture presents the subject in a
progressive, incremental manner, bottom-upwards. Starting with
digital logic and computer hardware, moving through the layers of
software and leading on to an introduction to the field of
networking and operating systems. It adopts a practical, hand-on
approach, drawing upon areas of student interest and experience
(the Internet, Pentium processors, GUIs, mobile communications) to
stimulate the reader's enthusiasm for the subject. Throughout,
system performance is analysed as jointly dependent on hardware and
software features. Practical exercises demonstrate this fundamental
aspect of hardware/software interaction. Computer Systems
Architectureis meant as an introduction in the first year to the
subject for university students in Computer Science and related
courses. It is planned as a two-semester introductory course in
networked computer systems passing through digital logic,
peripheral hardware, layers of software, networking, and operating
