goals

The students are familiar with connections and have detailed knowledge of the structure, components and functionality of modern computer systems in hardware and software. Thus they have the basis to design and develop computer components and systems, both in the computer technology itself, as well as in their application areas such as embedded systems. Participants in this course will be familiar with the basic operation of processors and their microarchitecture (such as pipeline stages, command handling, resolving pipeline conflicts, etc.).

content

Based on basic computer structures (Von-Neumann-architecture, SISD, SIMD, MIMD) basic skills for the requirement-oriented design and the application-oriented realization of computer systems are taught. Concrete examples of today's computers for different fields of application (8051, Pentium, Core, Ultra Sparc III) complete the general knowledge content. A special focus is the in-depth explanation and programming of the microarchitecture level as a complement to other courses in the field of computer science / computer technology (programming languages, embedded processors).
