Course syllabus

The course consists of four parts. The first part introduces the computer main components, the concept of perfornance and the computer languages (from high level to machine code through the assembly language) in the case of MIPS architecture.

The second part deals with the computer arithmetics, a simple model of ALU starting from Boolean logics, and the data processing and control units.

The third part is devoted to memories: the memory hierarchy, mass memory and simple memory models are discussed starting from sequential circuits.

The fourth and last part introduces the main notions needed to address the study of operating systems (like interrupt and memory management, for example).
