In this course, you will learn about the basic principles and current practices of computer architectures and organizations. At the end of this course, you will understand how and why computer hardware is organized so that it can rapidly execute a software program expressed in assembly language. You will also understand how computer hardware provides software with the illusion that fast memory and other resources are unlimited, even though they are not. Finally, you will learn how to quantitatively evaluate and improve computer system performance.
