Sample text

1 Memory words. 2 Examples of encoded information in a 32-bit word. that are commonly used are K (kilo) for the number 210 (1,024), and T (tera) for the number 240 . 1 Byte Addressability We now have three basic information quantities to deal with: bit, byte, and word. A byte is always 8 bits, but the word length typically ranges from 16 to 64 bits. It is impractical to assign distinct addresses to individual bit locations in the memory. The most practical assignment is to have successive addresses refer to successive byte locations in the memory.

However, printers are mechanical devices, and as such are quite slow compared to the electronic speed of a processor. Some units, such as graphic displays, provide both an output function, showing text and graphics, and an input function, through touchscreen capability. The dual role of such units is the reason for using the single name input/output (I/O) unit in many cases. 5 Control Unit The memory, arithmetic and logic, and I/O units store and process information and perform input and output operations.

3. Assume that the address of the memory location containing this instruction is initially in register PC. 2 • Send the address of the instruction word from register PC to the memory and issue a Read control command. • Wait until the requested word has been retrieved from the memory, then load it into register IR, where it is interpreted (decoded) by the control circuitry to determine the operation to be performed. • Increment the contents of register PC to point to the next instruction in memory.
