Computer Systems and Architecture
Formerly: CENG 450
Architecture and performance of modern processors, performance metrics; instruction set architectures and their impact on performance; instruction and arithmetic pipelines; pipeline hazards; exception handling; caches. Integral to the course is a Project Laboratory. Working in teams, students are expected to design and implement a processor based on a given specification of a simple instruction set. Student's progress is determined through a preliminary design review, a presentation, demonstration of the implementation and a final report.
- Credit will be granted for only one of ECE 449, CENG 450.
Undergraduate course in Electrical and Computer Engineering offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering.
