Computer architecture is the science and art of selecting and
interconnecting hardware components to create a computer that meets functional,
performance and cost goals. In this note, students will learn how to completely
design a correct single processor computer, including processor datapath,
processor control, memory systems, and I/O. Topics covered includes:
Performance, Instructions, Arithmetic, Datapath, Control, Exceptions,
Pipelining, Caches, Memory and VM, Arithmetic, Multiprocessors.
