Direct Memory Access (DMA)

The transfer of data between a fast storage device such as magnetic disk and memory is often limited by the speed of CPU. Removing the CPU from the path and letting the peripheral device manage the memory buses directly would improve the...

Pipelining in Computer Architecture

In order to speed up the operation of a computer system beyond what is possible with sequential execution, methods must be found to preform more than one task at a time. One method for gaining significant speedup with modest hardware cost...

Flip Flops

The basic digital memory circuit is known as FLIP FLOP. A flip flop circuit has two outputs, one for the normal value and one for the complement value of the stored bit. It can be obtained by using NAND and NOR gates. Binary information...

Multiplexer and Demultiplexer

What is Multiplexer ? Multiplexer is a combinational circuit that has 2n input lines and one of these inputs goes to single output lines. To select one from given 2n inputs, we have n selection lines. A multiplexer with 2n input lines...
