William Stallings Computer Organization and Architecture 6 th Edition Chapter 1 Introduction
Architecture & Organization 1 Architecture is those attributes of a system visible to the programmer —Instruction set, number of bits used for data representation, I/O mechanisms, addressing techniques. —e.g. Is there a multiply instruction? Organization is how features are implemented —Refers to the operational units and their interconnections that realize the architectural specification. —Control signals, interfaces, memory technology. —e.g. Is there a hardware multiply unit or is it done by repeated addition?
Architecture & Organization 2 Many computer manufacturers offer a family of computer models, all with the same architecture but with differences in organization. —All Intel x86 family share the same basic architecture —The IBM System/370 family share the same basic architecture This gives code compatibility Organization differs between different versions
Structure & Function A hierarchical system is a set of interrelated subsystems. —At each level, the system consists of a set of components and their interrelationship. —The behaviour at each level depends only on a simplified abstracted characterization of the system at the next lower level. At each, the designer is concerned with —Structure is the way in which components relate to each other —Function is the operation of individual components as part of the structure
Structure & Function Two descriptions: —Bottom-up –Starting at the bottom and building up to a complete description. —Top-down –Beginning with a top view and decomposing the system into its subparts. –The clearest and most effective.
Function All computer functions are: —Data processing —Data storage —Data movement —Control Functional view of a computer
Operations (1) Data movement Data movement —e.g. keyboard to screen
Operations (2) Storage Storage —Even if processing data on the fly —e.g. Internet download to disk
Operation (4) Processing from storage to I/O Processing from storage to I/O —e.g. printing a bank statement
The Structure of Computer The computer interacts in some fashion with its external environment. —Peripherals —Communication lines Computer Storage Processing Peripherals Communication lines
Structure - Top Level Computer Main Memory Input Output Systems Interconnection Peripherals Communication lines Central Processing Unit Computer
Structure - The CPU Computer Arithmetic and Login Unit Control Unit Internal CPU Interconnection Registers CPU I/O Memory System Bus CPU
Structure - The Control Unit CPU Control Memory Control Unit Registers and Decoders Sequencing Login Control Unit ALU Registers Internal Bus Control Unit
