CSC 435 Computer Organization

Prerequisite: CSC 236

Offered: Typically alternate Spring Terms (next offered Spring 2015)

Students in this course will study the point where hardware and software intersect in modern computing systems. We will design and impelment a virtual general-purpose processor and its instruction set, and explore the impact of those design decisions in the context of virtual machines and operating systems which run on our processor. In addition to the design and development of a virtual processor, we will research and discuss how modern, multicore processors differ from this classic model. 1 Course Credit
