Important information for Students
All students should fill out a student-specific symptom checker each day
before coming to class Link
CS 270 presents a top-down introduction to computer architecture
after students have completed an introduction to Java programming.
The course contains:
- C programming
- Number representation;
- The Von Neumann model
- Instruction Set Architecture
- Assembly language programming;
- Digital logic and gates.
The concepts in this course will be reinforced through assignments
in C, LC3 assembly language, and Logisim based circuit design.
The textbook covers this material in a bottom-up fashion
so we will cover the chapters in a different order.
See the Progress page for more information.
Graded activities will occur each week.
