Aims of the course
To provide the participants with in depth knowledge on computer
organization, and an associated understanding of issues which influence the
run-time of programs as well as an understanding of the interplay between
hardware and software.
Today processors are used in all forms of electronic equipment and hence the course is relevant for software developers as well as (electrical) engineers designing embedded systems where it is often important to make efficient use of the resources of the processor to optimize price, performance or energy consumption.
