Digital Design and Computer Architecture by David Harris, Sarah Harris

By David Harris, Sarah Harris

Digital layout and laptop Architecture is designed for classes that mix electronic good judgment layout with desktop organization/architecture or that educate those matters as a two-course series. Digital layout and computing device Architecture starts off with a latest method through conscientiously protecting the basics of electronic common sense layout after which introducing Description Languages (HDLs). that includes examples of the 2 such a lot widely-used HDLs, VHDL and Verilog, the 1st half the textual content prepares the reader for what follows within the moment: the layout of a MIPS Processor. through the top of electronic layout and laptop structure, readers can be in a position to construct their very own microprocessor and may have a top-to-bottom figuring out of ways it works--even in the event that they haven't any formal historical past in layout or structure past an introductory category. David Harris and Sarah Harris mix a fascinating and funny writing variety with an up to date and hands-on method of electronic layout.

· Unique presentation of electronic common sense layout from the viewpoint of laptop structure utilizing a true guide set, MIPS.
· Side-by-side examples of the 2 so much favourite layout Languages--VHDL and Verilog--illustrate and examine the methods the every one can be utilized within the layout of electronic systems.
· Worked examples finish every one part to reinforce the reader's knowing and retention of the material.
· Companion site contains hyperlinks to CAD instruments for FPGA layout from Synplicity and Xilinx,
lecture slides, laboratory initiatives, and options to workouts.

2 V. Suppose that, when it is in use, the cell phone operates at 300 MHz and the average amount of capacitance in the chip switching at any given time is 10 nF (10Ϫ8 Farads). When in use, it also broadcasts 3 W of power out of its antenna. When the phone is not in use, the dynamic power drops to almost zero because the signal processing is turned off. But the phone also draws 40 mA of quiescent current whether it is in use or not. Determine the battery life of the phone (a) if it is not being used, and (b) if it is being used continuously.

The symbol C L inside the box indicates that it is implemented using only combinational logic. In this example, the function, F, is specified to be OR: Y ϭ F(A, B) ϭ A ϩ B. In words, we say the output, Y, is a function of the two inputs, A and B, namely Y ϭ A OR B. 3. As we will see repeatedly throughout the book, there are often many implementations for a single function. You choose which to use given the building blocks at your disposal and your design constraints. These constraints often include area, speed, power, and design time.

S. D. in chemistry and physics from Caltech. Cofounded Intel in 1968 with Robert Noyce. Observed in 1965 that the number of transistors on a computer chip doubles every year. This trend has become known as Moore’s Law. Since 1975, transistor counts have doubled every two years. A corollary of Moore’s Law is that microprocessor performance doubles every 18 to 24 months. Semiconductor sales have also increased exponentially. Unfortunately, power consumption has increased exponentially as well (© 2006, Intel Corporation.
