CS330 MICROCOMPUTER ARCHITECTURE (4 Cr.)
Prerequisite: CS122 or permission of instructor
Offered: Fall, Winter
General Introduction and Goals
Study of how computer hardware responds to stored instructions. Construction projects with logic circuits lead to the development of interfacing connections and the conceptual designs of microprocessors. Assembly language programming of the microprocessor functions is introduced in the context of the logic circuitry being controlled. Programming projects emphasize the software needed in common interfacing tasks.
