Focused primarily on hardware design and organization — and the impact of software on the architecture — this volume first covers the basic organization, design, and programming of a simple digital computer, then explores the separate functional units in detail.


  • develops an elementary computer to demonstrate by example the organization and design of digital computers.
  • uses a simple register transfer language to specify various computer operations.
