Advances in Computer Architecture
A completely updated edition of this overview of modern computer architecture. Examines alternatives to classical low-level von Neumann computer architecture, discussing the problems of classical architecture and new solutions to these problems. Illustrates new concepts through in-depth case studies of the Intel APX 432, IBM's SWARD, and other machines. State-of-the-art concepts covered include tagged storage, capability-based addressing, process management, protection domains, and error detection.
