Advanced Microprocessors: Second Edition
Intended as a reference text on advanced top- level microprocessors, this book discusses microprocessors including Pentium, Powerpc, DEC Alpha AXP, SUPERSPARC, microprocessors without interlocked pipeline stages (MIPS) like R4400, MC88110 and HP PA-RISC. Readers are assumed to have some basic understanding of logic circuitry and basic computer organisation.
In this second edition, the detailed presentation of the system architecture is given in the beginning followed by a short description of its implementations. In Part 1 (General Principles), the first two chapters have been completely rewritten to reflect changes in the modern microprocessor environment.
