Advanced Processor Architecture



The APA exam takes place on Wednesday, September 23rd 2009 9:00-11:00 in room V38.04.

Informations about the visit to Verigy

This lecture covers advanced concepts in computer architecture. Beside classical concepts like processor design and manufacturing, performance evaluation and optimization, and computer arithmetic new trends are discussed like low power design. Low power design is essential in mobile computing and communication which is expected to be a dominating application of microprocessors in a few years.

Computation power is increasing by exploiting parallelism on all levels of computation. In this course we will discuss instruction level parallelism, thread level parallelism, multiprocessor systems and emerging many-core technologies found in current graphic accelerators.

The lecture provides a solid background for the courses:

  • Design & Test of Systems-on-a-Chip
  • Hardware Verification
  • Self-Testable Systems
  • Fault Tolerant Systems
