Digital Systems and Applications (The Computer Engineering Handbook, Second Edition)
CRC | 992 Pages | 2007 | ISBN:0849386195 | PDF | 12,85 MB
After nearly six years as the field's leading reference, the second edition of the award-winning Computer Engineering Handbook reemerges with completely updated content and a brand new format. Part of this monumental revision, Digital Systems and Applications surveys the latest advances in computer system technologies and the applications that are emerging to take advantage of increasingly sophisticated capabilities. Featuring contributions from leading experts, the book also includes new chapters on parallelizing iterative heuristics, stream and wireless processors, and lightweight embedded systems. Nearly every chapter features extensively updated information that reflects new developments, trends, standards, and technologies.
Computer engineering is a vast field spanning many aspects of hardware and software; thus, it is difficult to cover it in a single book. It is also rapidly changing requiring constant updating as some aspects of it may become obsolete. In this book, we attempt to capture the long-lasting fundamentals as well as the new trends, directions, and developments. This book could easily fill thousands of pages. We are aware that in this book, some areas were not given sufficient attention and some others were not covered at all. We plan to cover these missing parts as well as more specialized topics in more detail with new books under the computer engineering series and new editions of the current book. We believe that the areas covered by this new edition are covered very well because they are written by specialists, recognized as leading experts in their fields.
