ITS-2750 - Computer Architecture (4)

Prerequisite: ITS 2591  or ELT 2020  ;

Utilizing a widely used real world microcontroller, this course explores the internal architectures of microprocessors and how hardware components are interconnected to external peripherals. Through various programming assignments we will learn how the processor utilizes the control and data paths to access memory and peripherals. The importance of the memory map is emphasized. The course will also explore various ways to measure and improve a microprocessors performance. Topics covered include pipelining superscalar, memory hierarchies (cache and virtual memory) and instruction set. Other topics covered include digital logic circuits and dthe representations of numbers and data.

Course Fee: $60
