Goals of the Lecture

By attending this course, students learn architecture and the components of modern computer systems. This knowledge is directly required for advanced courses on distributed systems and communication systems. As computers are vital components of most robots and complex process automation systems, a basic understanding of computer systems is necessary for most practical work in this area, like project groups and lab courses.




    Processor performance, instruction set, CPU pipelining,  basic compiler techniques for instruction-level parallelism,  CPU multiple issue architectures (e.g., superscalar and VLIW), multi-core architectures, and multithreading. 

Storage Technology

    SRAM, DRAM, ROM, magnetic recording, optical recording

Memory Hierarchy

    Caches, virtual memory, multi-core shared-memory architectures

Operating Systems

    Process management, memory management,  CPU scheduling, deadlocks, 



Slides of all lectures will be supplied online.



The final exam will be written in 3 hours. 2 out of 4 special assignments are required to be completed successfully to get admitted to the final examination.
