Computer Organization & Architecture by Stallings

With clear, concise and easy-to-read material, the tenth edition of Computer Organization and Architecture is a user-friendly source for students studying computers. Subjects such as I/O functions and structures, RISC and parallel processors have been integrated with real-world examples throughout. Using brand new material and strengthened pedagogy, this text ensures that students are effectively engaged in the world of computer organization and architecture.

1. Chapter on GPUs (General Purpose Computing on Graphics Processing Units), highlighting one of the most important new developments in computer science

2. Heterogeneous Multicore Processors are surveyed in a new section of the text

3. Embedded Systems and Microcontrollers overview has been greatly expanded and revised

4. Cloud Computing is newly discussed in the text

5. System Performance issues coverage has been revised, expanded and reorganized for a clearer and more thorough treatment throughout the text

6. Flash Memory coverage has been revised and expanded with new information, including a new discussion of technology and organization of flash memory for internal and external memory

7. Nonvolatile RAM technologies like STT-RAM, PCRAM and ReRAM are newly covered
