Excellent book on overall semiconductor products from general design to basics of fabrication.An excellent resource for someone with some knowledge in one area and looking to expand their knowledge across more areas

I worked 40 years in this field and read many of similar books. The one by Grant Mc Farland is by far one of the best I have ever read. It is to be put on side of classical texts like the ones by Carver Mead or by Glasser & Dobberpuhl.Microprocessor Design is very clear, very well organized, has nice and effective drawings and a very good bibliography. It should be highly recommended also for IT marketing people to understand what is the real foundation of the IT revolution. One last remark: it's a pity that a similar text doesn't exist for software.But software technology is more complex than hardware, even if it doesn't seem so; and I'm pessimistic that such a text may appear in a short time.

Excellent book. It is an easy read but at the same time detailed and comprehensive. A very good book for non-EE engineers. I highly recommand this book for people that like to get an overall understanding of Microprocessor design and manufacturing.

Really good introduction into wonderful world of microprocessors. Too bad it is out of print.Grant McFarland has a great style explaining complex things very well. And he definitely knows what he is talking about having worked at Intel for so many years. :)

Provides a good overview of all aspects of microprocessor design
