Advanced Computer Architecture

(Parallel processing & State of the Art Systems)

 

Objectives

        To understand concepts of parallel processing and design choices of implementing parallel execution within a single processor (pipeline, VLIW, and superscalar) and multiprocessor systems.

        To gain knowledge of the state of the art research topics on advanced computing systems.
