The written exam for for students of computer science, INFOTECH and others is scheduled on 17th of March 2010.
It will take place at the same time in the same room. The duration is 60 Minutes.
Please register in addition with Mrs. Ritzmann (Room 1.453 in the CS building). The exam is provided in English and German.

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



  • Mondays, 11:30-13:00, Exercises in room V38.04
  • Tuesdays, 9:45-11:15, Lecture in room V38.04
  • Thursdays, 9:45-11:15, Lecture/Exercises in room V47.05
