Course Description
This course aims at providing fundamental knowledge on the principles of computer organization and microprocessors, and serves as the first course to other more advanced computer courses. In order to bring out the essential principles, a simple processor is used for illustration and is studied in detail, and on top of it, more general systems are also introduced.

Specifically, the course covers the following topics: integer and floating point number representations; basic computer building blocks; register transfers and phases of instruction execution; micro-computer system organization - bus signals, timing, and address decoding; study of a simple model microprocessor: signals, instruction set and addressing modes; subroutines; reentrancy; context switching; I/O programming; interrupt I/O and DMA; memory cells and systems; exception handling; assembler, linker and loader.
