ECE 510 Computer Architecture
Lectures: TR 8-9:20 in ETLC e1-008
Meetings: ECERF 2-020 9:35am as
An investigation of computer system design concepts emphasizing modern pipelined microprocessors. Topics include performance measures, instruction set design, hazards and exceptions, dependencies, branch prediction, instruction-level parallelism, memory hierarchies, cache organization, buses, rotating storage and I/O subsystem design.
It is possible for us to explore topics other than just those outlined here. If you have a specific interest, please raise it early in the term.
This graduate course in computer architecture will share lectures with the undergraduate course CMPE 382. In addition, there will be a seminar and a project.
The seminar is open to all graduate students and faculty. The price of admission is to present and critique a paper from the reading list. Final reports will also be presented here. The seminar will be scheduled so as to minimize conflicts.
Evaluation will be based on the raw total mark earned on the undergraduate materials, plus the project.
Exclusions: prior credit in CMPE 382, CMPUT 429, ECE 710 Comp Arch
