CSC 211 Computer System Organization

Credits: (4)
This course emphasizes the organization and operation of real computer systems at the architectural level. The mapping of statements and constructs in a high-level language onto sequences of machine instruction is studied, as well as the internal representation of simple data types and structures. Topics include the fetch/execute cycle, bus structures, memory hierarchy, addressing modes, and subroutines. Alternative architectures, such as vector and parallel models, are presented. Three
