This page refers to the Spring 2017 offering of CSE 590 only. The information on this page does not necessarily apply to every offering of CSE 590.
This course will provide an in-depth understanding of the inner workings of modern digital computer systems and trade-offs present at the hardware-software interface. Topics include: computer abstractions and technology, cost and performance analysis, instruction set architecture, computer arithmetic, datapath and controller design, pipelining, memory systems, input-output systems, and interrupts and exceptions. Projects requiring the use of software tools like the SPIM simulator for MIPS R2000/R3000 RISC processors and the Verilog hardware description language will be given to help crystallize concepts presented in class.
None presently available.
