    I need a book that includes information from one of my classes. The book is entirely too larger and hard to read. The Chapters includes Data Representation in Computer Systems
    Boolean Algebra and Digital Logic
    MARIE: An Introduction to a Simple Computer
    A Closer Look at Instruction Set Architectures,
    Input/Output and Storage Systems
    System Software
    Alternative Architectures
    Topics in Embedded Systems
    Performance Measurement and Analysis
    Network Organization and Architecture
    Selected Storage Systems and Interfaces

    Looks like you are looking for a book covering digital topics.

    Do you have a foundation in analog electronics? Many of the methods and limitations of digital systems stem from the fact they are created from analog components with high speeds and thresholds.

    If you do not have a basic foundation in analog electronics, "Art of Electronics" by Horowitz and Hill is an excellent book, and also covers a couple items on your list.

    I doubt there is a single book that covers all those topics. Performance is related to Instruction Sets and Software

    Embedded systems are a combination of software, I/O, memory, performance.

    Storage sysems are related to I/O and interfaces.


    Microcontrollers come closest to your list, covering data representation, logic, instruction set (RISC), memory, I/O, performance profiling, Embedded systems, and in the case of PICs, Networking (TCP/IP, not a reactive component network).
