Protected Mode Software Architecture
the problems that single-task and multitasking operating systems must deal
with, and then examines each component of both the real and protected mode
software architectures. This book is organized into three parts. Part One:
Background introduces the reader to the problems faced by a multitasking
operating system. Part Two: Register Set and Real Mode provides an
overview of Real Mode operation. Part Three: Protected Mode takes a
building-block approach to explaining the protection mechanisms and
multitasking capabilities of the post-286 Intel processors, including
segmentation, virtual paging, the flat model, and virtual 8086 mode.
Protected Mode Software Architecture extends MindShare's
x86 processor architecture to the software environment and complements the
previously published 80486 System Architecture and Pentium Processor
System Architecture (both from Addison-Wesley).
If you design or test multitasking operating systems,
systems, or device drivers for these systems, Protected Mode Software
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 is
designed to illustrate the relationship between the software and hardware and
thoroughly explains the architecture, features, and operations of systems built
using one particular type of chip or hardware specification.
MindShare, Inc., is one of the leading technical training
companies in the
computer industry, providing innovative courses for dozens of companies,
including Intel, IBM, and Compaq.
