課程概述 Course Description

As technology advances, computer architecture evolves as well. Computer architecture is the science and art to design, select, and connect hardware and co-design hardware/software interface to create a computer to meet the functional performance, energy consumption, cost or other specific requirements. This course aims to provide a strong foundation for students to understand modern computer system architecture and to apply these insights and principles to future computer designs. This course qualitatively and quantitatively examines fundamental computer design trade-offs, with the goal of developing an understanding that will enable students to perform cutting-edge research in computer architecture. Three primary building blocks of general-purpose computing systems: processors, memories, and networks will be covered. Topics include instruction set architecture; single-cycle & pipelined processors; superscalar execution, branch prediction, and speculative execution; multithreaded, VLIW, and SIMD processors; memory hierarchy, direct-mapped vs. associative caches, and network topology
