    Computer architecture is a relatively recently recognized discipline. The Technical Committee on Computer Architecture (TCCA) of the Computer Society was formed in 1970 and the Special Interest Committee on Computer Architecture (SICARCH) of ACM only in the summer of 1971. It is perhaps pertinent then, to ask what computer architecture is. A dictionary (1) defines architecture as: "the profession ... View full abstract»

    A good design is the Elderado in any systems area. The elements of good design include efficiency, simplicity, and flexibility for use. While we make no pretense that the ideas described in this paper are essential to good computer design, it seems to us that it does meet many of the criteria and avoids a number of the pitfalls associated with high performance computers.

    The development of computers has been influenced by three factors: the technology (i.e., the components from which we build); the hardware and software techniques we have learned to use; and the user (market). The improvements in technology seem to dominate in determining the possible resulting structures. Specifically, we can observe the evolution of four classes of computers: View full abstract»

  • The Next Three Generations

    In the beginning there was ENIAC. Then there was the 650, then the 7090 and then the 360. By any reasonable mathematics that makes four generations, but by judicious use of zero- origin indexing, we can come out with the present day machinery belonging to the third generation. In this paper, we will try to look at the next three generations of computers. View full abstract»

    When writing small programs, one can use many unwise practices which have little effect on whether a program meets its design objectives as long as the program works. But, when writing large programs, poor program writing techniques can increase development time and cost and can cause maintenance difficulties after development. The problem of low programmer productivity associated with membership ... View full abstract»
