Excellent introduction to RISC processors. Aug. 25 2013
By Carlos Sencion - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a good introduction to some characteristics of RISC processors. It doesn't cover a lot of internal aspects of the RISC processors hardware, but it does cover a lot of ISA details. Comparition between RISC and CISC appears along the book; including some examples of RISC processor achitectures, such as SPARC and ARM.

The book author asumes some knowledge of assembler, basic C programming language and some terminology of processors from the reader; in order to dive some chapters. The way he explain concepts is not specifically for a newbie. As he exposed, the target audience of the book are professional people and intermediate students of Computer Science or related fields. Skip this book if you lack of the mentioned requeriments or similar knowledge.

Sadly, the book is relatively old(2005). Some of the example RISC processors are from that era. But the main theory remains almost the same as of today(RISC).
