Computer Architecture offers an overview of a computer's key structural building blocks, introducing these building blocks in terms of computer family architecture whose members maintain compatibility with prior generation hardware as new implementations are introduced. The family architecture approach enables the reader to develop a clear appreciation for how computer systems evolve as the text highlights the critical characteristics that underwent change during the evolution of families.
