Sorry for the delay in this post. I could not get to this post in time and wanted to be sure it is well-researched. The final post in this series is a comparison of the hardware support in the ARM and x86 world. As mentioned in the previous post the biggest reason for ARM to include virtualization in their architecture is to be viable in the server market against x86. So I think a comparison of x86 and ARM hardware support for virtualization is warranted.

I wrote a list of 10 things programmers must know. I felt it was unfair to leave out the hardware guys. Since I have already covered what the hardware designers need to know about software (here here and here), I am now posting some important review topics for hardware designers. Make sure you revise these topics before job interviews. While this list targets architects and VLSI/RTL designers, it is a good resource for anyone looking to brush up their understanding of hardware design. It can also be used as a study guide to learn hardware on your own. I purposefully use keywords that can be googled.
