Whatas New in the Third Edition, Revised Printing The same great book gets better! This revised printing features all of the original content along with these additional features: ac Appendix A (Assemblers, Linkers, and the SPIM Simulator) has been moved from the CD-ROM into the printed book ac Corrections and bug fixes Third Edition features New pedagogical features ac Understanding Program Performance - Analyzes key performance issues from the programmeras perspective ac Check Yourself Questions - Helps students assess their understanding of key points of a section ac Computers In the Real World - Illustrates the diversity of applications of computing technology beyond traditional desktop and servers ac For More Practice - Provides students with additional problems they can tackle ac In More Depth - Presents new information and challenging exercises for the advanced student New reference features ac Highlighted glossary terms and definitions appear on the book page, as bold-faced entries in the index, and as a separate and searchable reference on the CD. ac A complete index of the material in the book and on the CD appears in the printed index and the CD includes a fully searchable version of the same index. ac Historical Perspectives and Further Readings have been updated and expanded to include the history of software RaD. ac CD-Library provides materials collected from the web which directly support the text. In addition to thoroughly updating every aspect of the text to reflect the most current computing technology, the third edition ac Uses standard 32-bit MIPS 32 as the primary teaching ISA. ac Presents the assembler-to-HLL translations in both C and Java. ac Highlights the latest developments in architecture in Real Stuff sections: - Intel IA-32 - Power PC 604 - Googleas PC cluster - Pentium P4 - SPEC CPU2000 benchmark suite for processors - SPEC Web99 benchmark for web servers - EEMBC benchmark for embedded systems - AMD Opteron memory hierarchy - AMD vs. 1A-64 New support for distinct course goals Many of the adopters who have used our book throughout its two editions are refining their courses with a greater hardware or software focus. We have provided new material to support these course goals: New material to support a Hardware Focus ac Using logic design conventions ac Designing with hardware description languages ac Advanced pipelining ac Designing with FPGAs ac HDL simulators and tutorials ac Xilinx CAD tools New material to support a Software Focus ac How compilers work ac How to optimize compilers ac How to implement object oriented languages ac MIPS simulator and tutorial ac History sections on programming languages, compilers, operating systems and databases On the CD ac NEW: Search function to search for content on both the CD-ROM and the printed text ac CD-Bars: Full length sections that are introduced in the book and presented on the CD ac CD-Appendixes: Appendices B-D ac CD-Library: Materials collected from the web which directly support the text ac CD-Exercises: For More Practice provides exercises and solutions for self-study ac In More Depth presents new information and challenging exercises for the advanced or curious student ac Glossary: Terms that are defined in the text are collected in this searchable reference ac Further Reading: References are organized by the chapter they support ac Software: HDL simulators, MIPS simulators, and FPGA design tools ac Tutorials: SPIM, Verilog, and VHDL ac Additional Support: Processor Models, Labs, Homeworks, Index covering the book and CD contents Instructor SupportThis bestselling text has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the newest technologies. The book presents an entire MIPS instruction set and explains the explicit connection between program performance and CPU performance.
