COSC 3445: Computer Architecture

Introduces students to the organization and architecture of computer systems, beginning with the standard von Neumann model and moving forward to more recent architectural concepts. Includes laboratory experiments in logic circuits (such as adders, multiplexers, arithmetic logic units, counters, shift registers, and memory units) and computer subsystems (such as buses, central processing units, and input-output systems). Prerequisites: COSC 2315, COSC 2336
