Computer Organization Allows people to receive information from computers instructions. Arithmetic operations are performed using binary number system.
Computer System Organization: More specifically, it examines how computer systems can or should be organized to support, and hence make more efficient, the running of computer programs that evolve with characteristically similar information structures. The discussion then turns to the block-structured processes involved in the B job, which consists of a time-invariant algorithm and a time-varying data structure which is the record of execution of that algorithm. Subsequent chapters deal with the basic data structures for B algorithms; task attributes and the creation and coordination of tasks; stack structure and stack ownership; and software interrupts. Storage control strategies as well as the pros and cons of B are also considered, along with some hardware details of procedure entry and return and tasking. This monograph is intended for computer center directors, other computer professionals, and serious students in computer science who have an interest in the subject of computer organization. We are always looking for ways to improve customer experience on Elsevier.
For example, in a SD card, the designers might need to arrange the card so that the most data can be processed in the fastest possible way. Computer organization also helps plan the selection of a processor for a particular project. Multimedia projects may need very rapid data access, while virtual machines may need fast interrupts.
Sometimes certain tasks need additional components as well. For example, a computer capable of running a virtual machine needs virtual memory hardware so that the memory of different virtual computers can be kept separated. Computer organization and features also affect power consumption and processor cost.
Main article: Implementation Once an instruction set and micro-architecture are designed, a practical machine must be developed. This design process is called the implementation. Implementation is usually not considered architectural design, but rather hardware design engineering.
Implementation can be further broken down into several steps: Logic Implementation designs the circuits required at a logic gate level Circuit Implementation does transistor -level designs of basic elements gates, multiplexers, latches etc. Physical Implementation draws physical circuits. The different circuit components are placed in a chip floorplan or on a board and the wires connecting them are created. Design Validation tests the computer as a whole to see if it works in all situations and all timings.
Once the design validation process starts, the design at the logic level are tested using logic emulators.
However, this is usually too slow to run realistic test. Most hobby projects stop at this stage. The final step is to test prototype integrated circuits. Integrated circuits may require several redesigns to fix problems. Design goals[ edit ] The exact form of a computer system depends on the constraints and goals. Computer architectures usually trade off standards, power versus performance, cost, memory capacity, latency latency is the amount of time that it takes for information from one node to travel to the source and throughput.
Sometimes other considerations, such as features, size, weight, reliability, and expandability are also factors. The most common scheme does an in depth power analysis and figures out how to keep power consumption low, while maintaining adequate performance. Performance[ edit ] Modern computer performance is often described in IPC instructions per cycle. This measures the efficiency of the architecture at any clock frequency. Since a faster rate can make a faster computer, this is a useful measurement.
Older computers had IPC counts as low as 0. Simple modern processors easily reach near 1. Superscalar processors may reach three to five IPC by executing several instructions per clock cycle. Counting machine language instructions would be misleading because they can do varying amounts of work in different ISAs.
The "instruction" in the standard measurements is not a count of the ISA's actual machine language instructions, but a unit of measurement, usually based on the speed of the VAX computer architecture. Many people used to measure a computer's speed by the clock rate usually in MHz or GHz. The programming of this giant machine required manual change of circuitry by expert individuals by changing connecting wires and lots of switches; It sure was a tedious task.
It worked on decimal systems much similar to the way we, humans, do in our normal lives. This computer was proposed by John von Neumann and others in It used stored program model for computers, wherein all instructions were also to be stored in memory along being data to be processed thereby removing the need for change in hardware structure to change the program. This basic structure of computer system has since then served as the basic idea for a computer system.
The trend continues even today with few changes in the design. This architecture however is more popular for implementation in IAS computer, as Neumann, later, shifted to this project.
We will see the architecture of IAS computer in detail at a later stage. Rapid restructuring of Organisation[ edit ] As all this was going on an major advancement in field of electronics was achieved at Bell labs as William Shockley invented transistor. Access is accomplished by jumping direct access to general vicinity plus a sequential search to reach the final location.
Thus any location can be selected out randomly and directly addressed and accessed. Moreover for the practical system, the cost should be reasonable. But at the same time, access time increases and hence decreases the performance. So the best idea will be to use memory hierarchy. The figure below illustrates memory hierarchy. It is relatively large and fast memory to store programs and data during the computer operation.
These memories employ semiconductor integrated circuits. The basic element of the semiconductor memory is the memory cell. When a signal is applied to this line, the two transistors are switched on allowing for read and write operation.
Compiled By: Er. The amplifier will store the voltage and place a 1 on data out line. The amplifier senses that there is no charge and places a 0 on data out line. If one bit is wrong, the whole batch of ROM must be thrown out. The writing process is performed electrically and may be performed by a supplier or customer at a time later than the original chip fabrication.
However, before a write operation, all the storage cells must be erased to the same initial state by exposure of the packaged chip to ultraviolet radiation UV ray.
Erasure is performed by shining an intense ultraviolet light through a window that is designed into the memory chip. The write operation takes considerably longer than the read operation, on the order of several hundred microseconds per byte. The EEPROM combines the advantage of non-volatility with the flexibility of being updatable in place, using ordinary bus control, addresses and data lines.
In addition, it is possible to erase just blocks of memory rather than an entire chip. However, flash memory doesn't provide byte level erasure, a section of memory cells are erased in an action or 'flash'. It includes serial access type such as magnetic tapes and random access type such as magnetic disks. It can be stopped, started to move forward or in reverse or can be rewound. Data on tapes are structured as number of parallel tracks running length wise.
