CSC 201 - Computer Organization and Architecture I


Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0

This course covers the relationship between computing hardware and machine language instruction sets, implementation of high level languages on the machine and some memory related issues. The study is organized into levels in the following order of topics: fundamental building blocks such as logic gates and flip-flops and combinational and sequential logic; machine level representation of data; basic assembly language, implementation of high level language constructs, addressing modes, compilation, assembly and interpretation; memory hierarchy; interrupts. Some real world computer systems and microprocessors are used as examples, along with their hardware and the organization of their instruction sets. Assembly language programming is studied in detail.
Prerequisite: CSC 130   
Corequisite: MATH 150
