    The advent of the microprocessor has enabled designers to prove that they can now perform the same tasks previously accomplished with TTL or minicomputers but at the same time achieve much greater product complexity. Thus, results are not simply products that replace old ones with greater cost effectiveness, but ones which incorporate a magnitude of new features. The next generations of product de...

    Despite the fact that microcomputers have existed commercially for only five years, microcomputer architecture is not an entirely new field. It is, rather, the application of the general principles of computer architecture to microcomputers. In "Planning a Computer System," Frederick P. Brooks Jr. defines computer architecture as being, like other architecture, "the art of determining the needs of... View full abstract»

    There are at least as many different microprocessor input/output organizations, circuit configurations, and device types as there are microprocessor families and manufacturers. Due to the diversity of competing approaches and devices, their similarities and differences are not always evident. The fact that each manufacturer describes his approaches and devices differently, and the relative scarcit... View full abstract»

    Microcomputers, as a class of programmable machines, are rather uncomfortable and difficult to program, and are even more unpleasant as the target machines for programming languages. This need not be so. View full abstract»

    As organizations become more dependent on computers, they become more sensitive to computer system failures. The importance of computer reliability in realtime control systems (e.g., communications systems8,15and traffic control systems) has been recognized for some time. Many computer users are now becoming aware that they accomplish more on systems which seldom crash because of malfun... View full abstract»
