Qualitatively and quantitatively examines power, performance and security trade-offs in architecting computing systems. Explores three major components of modern general-purpose architectures: processors, memories, and networks. Enables students to understand how these components can be integrated to build complex multicore, manycore, and multithreaded architectures. Covers the architectural trade-offs in IoT, embedded, and high-performance processors. Topics include processor and system architecture in single core, multicore, multithreaded and heterogeneous architectures; memory architecture, network topology, routing, and flow control. Offered by Electrical & Comp. Engineering. May not be repeated for credit.
