Publication Date: 17 Dec 2020
Description
Computer Organization and Design RISC-V Edition: The Hardware Software Interface, Second Edition, the award-winning textbook from Patterson and Hennessy that is used by more than 40,000 students per year, continues to present the most comprehensive and readable introduction to this core computer science topic. This version of the book features the RISC-V open source instruction set architecture, the first open source architecture designed for use in modern computing environments such as cloud computing, mobile devices, and other embedded systems. Readers will enjoy an online companion website that provides advanced content for further study, appendices, glossary, references, links to software tools, and more.

Key Features

  • Covers parallelism in-depth, with examples and content highlighting parallel hardware and software topics
  • Focuses on 64-bit address, ISA to 32-bit address, and ISA for RISC-V because 32-bit RISC-V ISA is simpler to explain, and 32-bit address computers are still best for applications like embedded computing and IoT
  • Includes new sections in each chapter on Domain Specific Architectures (DSA)
  • Provides updates on all the real-world examples in the book
