The text, Computer Organization and Architecture, uses the ARM to introduce and demonstrate the instruction set architecture. Although it would have been nice to cover other processors in the text, there was no room. In this section of the web take a look as some other processors. We provide an introduction to the RISC concept, a brief coverage of the Motorola 68000 family, and an introduction to the MIPS processor that is a contemporary of the ARM.
