3 Application Level and HLL The user sees software, speed, storage capacity, and peripheral device functionality. will serve you by providing that understanding. computers it is our sincerest hope that this book Computer Engineering, or some other aspect of your career objective is in Computer Science, that you fully understand the machine. Whether at the gate, ISA, and the system architecture level is when you understand how a machine functions leads to an efficient, effective computer design. It a computer system from each the three perspectives The intellectual synthesis that comes from viewing 1.10 Looking Ahead
