ECET 32500 - Computer Architecture, Modeling And Performance Analysis
Credit Hours: 4.0.
A study of the architecture, hardware, and system software of computers. Fundamental principles associated with the operation of computers are introduced and studied. Modeling and analysis of computer subsystems, their performance, and interactions are also studied.
After completing this course, the student should be able to:
1. Demonstrate a working knowledge of the architecture, hardware and system software of a computer system.
2. Calculate buffer (queue) size requirements based on probabilistic arrival processes.
3. Analyze and calculate time and space bounds for simple algorithms.
4. Analyze and calculate the relative performance of computer subsystems.
5. Demonstrate a working knowledge of the fundamental principles of operation associated with computer systems.
6. Design and implement programs to observe and characterize computer subsystem performance using structured and finite state machine visualization and programming techniques.
