Classification of designs; Von Neumann architecture; pipelining; RISC versus CISC architecture; interconnection networks; multiprocessors and multicomputers; parallel programming and parallel algorithms in multiprocessors/multicomputers environment; data flow and systolic array architectures; future horizons for architecture. Appendices: basic components of VLSI design; combinational and sequential circuits; hardware description language - VHDL.
This text takes a two-fold approach: to provide a foundation for understanding and evaluating the design principles incorporated in modern computers; and to present basic techniques for designing parallel systems and parallel algorithms.
