"An invaluable tool and reference on ISA architecture and time reading it is time well spent. You might just end up wondering how you ever got along without it!"

-David Greenberg, Dell Computer Corporation

ISA System Architecture describes the hardware architecture of ISA (Industry Standard Architecture), providing a clear, concise explanation of an ISA system in detail. The authors provide a comprehensive treatment of the bus including:

  • bus cycles
  • addressing
  • I/O
  • RAM, ROM, and cache memory
  • cache architectures
  • decode and reset logic
  • interrupts
  • system kernel
  • bus mastering
  • DMA
  • RTC and configuration RAM

If you design or test hardware or software that involves ISA, ISA System Architecture is an essential, time-saving tool.

The PC System Architecture Series is a crisply written and comprehensive set of guides to the most important PC hardware standards. Each title explains from a programmer's perspective the architecture, features, and operations of systems built using one particular type of chip or hardware specification.
