Computer architecture is the science and art of selecting and interconnecting hardware components to create a computer that meets functional, performance and cost goals. In this course, students will learn how to completely design a correct single processor computer, including processor datapath, processor control, memory systems, and I/O. We will learn that no magic is required to make a computer work.
There will be 2 exams. One mid-term exam sometime in March and the final exam.
All students should adhere to UW Student Code of Conduct. University and L&S Policies will be followed strictly in this course.
