Advanced Computer Architecture and Parallel Processing by Hesham El-Rewini, Mostafa Abd-El-Barr

By Hesham El-Rewini, Mostafa Abd-El-Barr

Computing device structure bargains with the actual configuration, logical constitution, codecs, protocols, and operational sequences for processing information, controlling the configuration, and controlling the operations over a working laptop or computer. It additionally encompasses observe lengths, guideline codes, and the interrelationships one of the major elements of a working laptop or computer or crew of desktops. This two-volume set deals a accomplished insurance of the sector of machine association and structure.

Operational Amplifiers: Theory and Design

Operational Amplifiers – thought and layout, moment version provides a scientific circuit layout of operational amplifiers. Containing cutting-edge fabric in addition to the necessities, the e-book is written to attract either the circuit clothier and the approach dressmaker. it's proven that the topology of all operational amplifiers should be divided into 9 major total configurations.

Computer and Information Security Handbook

The second edition of this finished guide of machine and data security provides the main entire view of machine defense and privateness on hand. It bargains in-depth insurance of safety idea, know-how, and perform as they relate to proven applied sciences in addition to contemporary advances.

Languages, Design Methods, and Tools for Electronic System Design: Selected Contributions from FDL 2015

This booklet brings jointly a variety of the simplest papers from the eighteenth version of the discussion board on specification and layout Languages convention (FDL), which happened on September 14-16, 2015, in Barcelona, Spain. FDL is a well-established foreign discussion board dedicated to dissemination of study effects, functional studies and new rules within the software of specification, layout and verification languages to the layout, modeling and verification of built-in circuits, complicated hardware/software embedded platforms, and mixed-technology platforms.

5. Compare uniprocessor systems with multiprocessor systems for the following aspects: (a) ease of programming; (b) the need for synchronization; (c) performance evaluation; and (d) run time system. 6. Provide a list of the main advantages and disadvantages of SIMD and MIMD machines. 7. Provide a list of the main advantages and disadvantages of shared-memory and message-passing paradigm. 8. List three engineering applications, with which you are familiar, for which SIMD is most efficient to use, and another three for which MIMD is most efficient to use.

The number of channels into the node is the in-degree, din . The number of channels out of a node is the out-degree, dout . The total degree, d, is the sum, d ¼ din þ dout . Diameter, D, of a network having N nodes is defined as the longest path, p, of the shortest paths between any two nodes D ¼ max (minp[pij length( p)). In this equation, pij is the length of the path between nodes i and j and length ( p) is a procedure that returns the length of the path, p. For example, the diameter of a 4 Â 4 Mesh D ¼ 6.

3. What is the difference between cluster computing and grid computing? 4. Assume that a switching component such as a transistor can switch in zerotime. We propose to construct a disk-shaped computer chip with such a component. The only limitation is the time it takes to send electronic signals from one edge of the chip to the other. Make the simplifying assumption that electronic signals can travel at 300,000 km/s. What is the limitation on the diameter of a round chip so that any computation result can by used anywhere on the chip at a clock rate of 1 GHz?
