Introduction to computer architecture and operating systems (2018/2019)
Go to lesson schedule. Knowledge and understanding: students wiil learn the theory and practice to realize an algorithm in hardware, exploring a spectrum of options ranging from dedicated specialized devices to programs on a general-purpose processor; they will understand how a processor works and how an high-level program is translated into machine language and then executed; they will understand the organization of a computer system and of the operating systems running on it, with the related issues of correctness and efficiency. Capabilities to apply knowledge and understanding: the students will be able to design specialized hardware for simple algorithms; translate simple programs from an high-level specification to machine language; write shell scripts using system calls in C in the UNIX environment; manage an information system, especially for what the installation and maintenance of applications and resources is concerned. Computer Architecture. Fundamentals: information coding, Boolean functions, arithmetic.
Functional units of a Computer: Functional Units A computer consists of ve functionally independent main parts: input, memory, arithmetic and logic, output, and control units, as shown below. Input Unit Computers accept coded information through input units. The most common input device is the keyboard. Whenever a key is pressed, the corresponding letter or digit is automatically translated into its corresponding binary code and transmitted to the processor. Many other kinds of input devices for human-computer interaction are: touchpad, mouse, joystick, trackball etc. These are often used as graphic input devices in conjunction with displays. Microphones can be used to capture audio input which is then sampled and converted into digital codes for storage and processing.
