The closed-lab environment has been used successfully in the Computer Science curriculum. This paper proposes a set of laboratories, that combine the use of hands-on techniques and logic simulation. During a semester, students in Computer Systems Organization classes design and implement a working model of a complete system: OBC.
Mesh systems, that is amays of processors with banded mesh architecture, haVC found many applications in computer scienm. The behavior of a mesh system depends not only on actual traffic, but on its inherent structure as well. Traffic in a mesh system is dynamic, non-linear and thus difficult to analyxe. However, the inherent structure itself is static.… (More)
