CS3340 - Computer Architecture

CS 3340 Computer Architecture (3 semester hours) This course introduces the concepts of computer architecture by going through multiple levels of abstraction, and the numbering systems and their basic computations. It focuses on the instruction-set architecture of the MIPS machine, including MIPS assembly programming, translation between MIPS and C, and between MIPS and machine code. General topics include performance calculation, processor datapath, pipelining, and memory hierarchy. Students who have already completed CS 2310 or equivalent cannot receive credit for this course. Students cannot receive credit for both (CS 3340 or SE 3340 or TE 3340) and (CE 4304 or EE 4304). Prerequisites: (CE 1337 or CS 1337 or TE 1337 or equivalent) and (CE 2305 or CS 2305 or TE 2305). (Same as SE 3340 and TE 3340) (3-0) S
