Book Description
This book is intended for computer science majors who want to study computer organization without having to understand computers at the transistor level.

Computer Organization and Design Fundamentals takes the reader from the basic design principles of the modern digital computer to a top-level examination of its architecture. This book can serve either as a textbook to an introductory course on computer hardware or as the basic text for the aspiring geek who wants to learn about digital design. The material is presented in four parts. The first part describes how computers represent and manipulate numbers. The second part presents the tools used at all levels of binary design. The third part introduces the reader to computer system theory with topics such as memory, caches, hard drives, pipelining, and interrupts. The last part applies these theories through an introduction to the Intel 80x86 architecture and assembly language. The material is presented using practical terms and examples with an aim toward providing anyone who works with computer systems the ability to use them more effectively through a better understanding of their design.

Many books of computer organization assumed the reader had had some experience with electronics. Some books went so far as to use screen captures from oscilloscopes and other test equipment to describe circuit properties. It didn?t take long to find out that this was a bad assumption to make when it came to students of computer science.

This book evolved from a collection of supplementary notes posted in internet by the author, an electrical engineering by training, to provide a lifeline for computer science students. With a help from Lulu.com, the online notes was compiled into a book and self-published.

So here it is, a textbook open to any audience who want to learn about the digital concepts of a computer. The author have tried to address topics such as analog to digital conversion, CRC's, and memory organization using practical terms and examples instead of the purely theoretical or technical approaches favored by engineers.

While this book alone will not provide the readers with the background necessary to begin designing and building contemporary computer circuits, nevertheless it will give the readers the tools needed to become better developers of software and computer systems by understanding the tools for logic design and the organization of the computer's internals.

The design concepts used for hardware are just as applicable to software. In addition, an understanding of hardware can be applied to software design allowing for improved system performance. This book can be used as a springboard to topics such as advanced computer architecture, embedded system design, network design, compiler design, or microprocessor design. The possibilities are endless.
