Fundamentals of computer organization and architecture

This chapter discusses the RISC/CISC Evolution Cycle, which began with an introduction to Computer Systems, then moved to Reduced Instruction Set Computers (RISCs), and finally to Multiprocessors, which combines RISC and CISCs.

A Decompositional Approach to Computer System Performance Evaluation

As modern applications become increasingly dependent on multimedia, graphics, and data movement, they are spending an increasing 2 fraction of their execution time in the operating system (OS) kernel, an area of the system almost completely ignored by such traditional performance-evaluation tools.

ScholarWorks @ UTRGV ScholarWorks @ UTRGV A Simple Project Paradigm for Teaching Computer Architecture A Simple Project Paradigm for Teaching Computer Architecture

This paper presents a teaching method for a possible computer architect by using a simple DCT project for an undergraduate-level computer architecture course to let students understand the concept of computer hardware and how to design a simple RISC-type 32-bit Instruction Set Architecture (ISA).

Model-integrated design toolset for polymorphous computer-based systems

This paper outlines a model-integrated toolset to aid in the specification, analysis and synthesis of polymorphous applications and shows that polymorphous system design is inherently coupled with the search and exploration of a combinatorial space of design tradeoffs.

  • 2004
An introductory architecture course has been modified to include concepts of parallel structures as well as traditional ISAs, and the design methodology and performance evaluations are not as mature as the traditional ISA based design.

An innovative simulation approach for labs in computer architecture

  • J. Archibald

  • 2002
A new approach to lab assignments in computer architecture courses, using a tool suite for the target instruction-set architecture, results in cycle-accurate timing without the overhead of models at the register-transfer level, and it illustrates how diverse architectural elements combine to make a processor work.

Unifying Laboratory Content Of A Digital Systems And Computer Architecture Curriculum Through Horizontal And Vertical Integration

The restructured laboratory sequence provides a cohesive educational experience and significant exposure to concepts, design methodologies, and software tools ubiquitous in the semiconductor and computer industry.

A coherent sequence of computer architecture laboratory assignments

The organization of the laboratory sequence is presented, each weekly laboratory assignment is described and the lessons learned after offering the Computer Architecture course to six generations of students are described.


A sequence of two mandatory courses has been developed that addresses both of these aspects of computer engineering for the curriculum in Electrical Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology.



Memoirs of a Computer Pioneer

This absorbing autobiography is as concerned with people and places as he is with computer components and programs of development and deftly sketches his childhood in the English midlands and his student days at Cambridge where he studied mathematical physics.

Computing Perspectives

In a recent Viewpoint column, John McCarthy made some trenchant remarks about the unsatisfactory state of email and why it is losing out to fax technology, and I strongly agree with what he had to say.

Measurement and Evaluation of Alternative Computer Architectures

The Army/Navy Computer Family Architecture Committee has developed an approach for quantifying the relative performance of alternative computer architectures.

Who Invented the First Electronic Digital Computer

The electronic digital computer was invented just over four decades ago, ushering in a series of technological changes which can only be compared to the Industrial Revolution in their scope,

Validity of the Single Processor Approach to Achieving Large Scale Computing Capabilities

An instrument for facilitating the calculation of equivalent values includes a plate bearing symbols representing units and dimensions, the plate having a window in which a movable pointer is

The Dynamics of the Computer Industry: Modeling the Supply of Workstations and their Components

This work presents a meta-modelling system that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive process of manually cataloging and calibrating workstation supply models.

Characterizing computer performance with a single number

The controversy surrounding single number performance reduction is examined and solutions are suggested through a comparison of measures.

Portraits in silicon

Who are the masterminds of today's electronic revolution and what motivated them? That's the question Time correspondent Robert Slater asked as he traveled to Silicon Valley to interview the

Dhrystone: a synthetic systems programming benchmark

Pascal and C versions of the benchmark are discussed, which executes 100 Ada statements that are balanced in terms of the distribution of statement types, data types, and data locality.

How not to lie with statistics: the correct way to summarize benchmark results

Using the arithmetic mean to summarize normalized benchmark results leads to mistaken conclusions that can be avoided by using the preferred method: the geometric mean.
