Microprocessor Architecture: From Simple Pipelines to Chip by Jean-Loup Baer

By Jean-Loup Baer

This e-book supplies a entire description of the structure of microprocessors from basic in-order brief pipeline designs to out-of-order superscalars. It discusses issues equivalent to - the guidelines and mechanisms wanted for out-of-order processing akin to sign up renaming, reservation stations, and reorder buffers - optimizations for top functionality reminiscent of department predictors, guideline scheduling, and load-store speculations - layout offerings and improvements to tolerate latency within the cache hierarchy of unmarried and a number of processors - state of the art multithreading and multiprocessing emphasizing unmarried chip implementations themes are offered as conceptual rules, with metrics to evaluate the functionality impression, if acceptable, and examples of cognizance. The emphasis is on how issues paintings at a black field and algorithmic point. the writer additionally presents adequate aspect on the check in move point in order that readers can have fun with how layout beneficial properties increase functionality in addition to complexity.

Operational Amplifiers: Theory and Design

Operational Amplifiers – thought and layout, moment variation provides a scientific circuit layout of operational amplifiers. Containing state of the art fabric in addition to the necessities, the ebook is written to entice either the circuit clothier and the process dressmaker. it truly is proven that the topology of all operational amplifiers will be divided into 9 major total configurations.

Computer and Information Security Handbook

The second edition of this finished instruction manual of computing device and knowledge security provides the main entire view of desktop defense and privateness to be had. It bargains in-depth insurance of safeguard conception, expertise, and perform as they relate to demonstrated applied sciences in addition to contemporary advances.

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

This ebook brings jointly a variety of the easiest papers from the eighteenth variation of the discussion board on specification and layout Languages convention (FDL), which came about on September 14-16, 2015, in Barcelona, Spain. FDL is a well-established foreign discussion board dedicated to dissemination of study effects, useful reports and new rules within the program of specification, layout and verification languages to the layout, modeling and verification of built-in circuits, advanced hardware/software embedded structures, and mixed-technology structures.
