KECE343(00) Computer Architecture

▣ Lecture outline


 This course will provide an in-depth understanding of the inner workings of microprocessors and the ability to analyze and design computer systems. Topics covered include instruction set architectures, computer arithmetic, pipelining, caches and memory hierarchy, multicores, and IO and bus subsystem. We will also study computer sytems from the perspective of programmers. We will first discuss sofware development tools such as compilers, linkers, and loaders. Then, we will study the fundamental concepts of operating system and its programming interfaces, which include processes, exceptions, signals, and virtual memory.
