The Elements of Computing Systems
by Noam Nisan, Shimon Schocken - MIT Press , 2005
The book exposes students to a significant body of computer science knowledge, gained through a series of hardware and software construction tasks. These tasks demonstrate how theoretical and applied techniques are used in practice.
USB in a NutShell
by Craig Peacock - Beyond Logic , 2007
Topics: Introduction, Background, Architectural Overview, USB Data Flow Model, USB's Two Standard Connectors, Low Level Electrical Signalling, Protocol Layer, USB Device Frame Work, USB Host Hardware and Software and Hub Specification.
High Performance Computing
by Charles Severance, Kevin Dowd - O'Reilly Media , 1998
The purpose of this book is to teach new programmers and scientists about the basics of High Performance Computing. This book is for learners with a basic understanding of modern computer architecture, not advanced degrees in computer engineering.
by Zhongfeng Wang - InTech , 2010
Advances of VLSI technology have led to the explosion of computer and electronics world. The goal of this book is to elaborate the VLSI design techniques at multiple levels: at device level, circuit level, system level, and architectural level.
by Michael Karbo - karbosguide.dk , 2006
This guide is written in easy language and contains a lot of illustrations. The author would like to give you enough insight into and confidence about your PC's workings that you would dare to upgrade your PC, or build your next PC yourself.
Capability-Based Computer Systems
by Henry M. Levy - Digital Press , 1984
This book is an introduction, a survey, a history, and an evaluation of capability- and object-based computer systems. It is still the most thorough survey and description of early capability-based and object-based hardware and software systems.
Circuit Design Using Personal Computers
by Thomas R. Cuthbert - John Wiley & Sons , 1983
This practical guide to designing electronic circuits using small computers and programmable calculators makes it easy to implement both classical and sophisticated design techniques. It uses the interaction between circuit designer and computer.
More About High-volume Web Sites
by IBM Redbooks - International Technical Support , 2004
Prepare your WebSphere Web site for e-business on demand, architecture for virtualization with WebSphere Application Server, advanced clustering techniques for maximizing Web site availability with WebSphere Application Server, and more.
Computer Aids for VLSI Design
by Steven M. Rubin - Addison-Wesley , 1994
A broad view of the computational tools for VLSI designers. This book contains information valuable both to tool builders and to chip designers. The exposition is understandable to anyone familiar with computer programming and chip design.
Designing Analog Chips
by Hans Camenzind - Virtualbookworm.com Publishing , 2005
The book is a comprehensive introduction to CMOS and analog IC design for engineers with a non-analog background. The emphasis is given on practical design, the entire field is covered with hundreds of examples. Very clear exposition.
Quantitative System Performance, Computer System Analysis Using Queuing Network Models
by Edward D. Lazowska - Prentice Hall , 1984
This is a book book for computer system performance analysts. It should teach them to apply queueing network models as tools to assist in answering the questions of cost and performance that arise throughout the life of a computer system.
How Computers Work: Processor and Main Memory
by Roger Young - 1st Books Library , 2002
The book is an electrical engineering text aimed at a non-technical audience with no knowledge of computers or electronics. The book begins with a very simple circuit and continues to a very complex circuit (a computer) while explaining everything.
Principles of Semiconductor Devices
by Bart Van Zeghbroeck , 2007
This book explores the behavior of semiconductor devices, to show the relation between the device material parameters, and the resulting electrical characteristics. The text provides the link between the physics and the design of electronic circuits.
Computer Organization and Design Fundamentals
by David Tarnoff - Lulu.com , 2007
Computer Organization and Design Fundamentals by David Tarnoff gives the tools for better understanding of the organization and logic design of the computer's internals. It will introduce the reader into designing and building computer circuits.
Algorithms and Data Structures in VLSI Design
by Christoph Meinel, Thorsten Theobald - Springer , 1998
The application of OBDDs (ordered binary decision diagrams) led to dramatic improvements in computer-aided design projects. This book is an introduction to this research area with an emphasis on applications in computer-aided circuit design.
