CIS 588 - Computer Organization

Credits: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0
Practicum Hours: 0
Work Experience: 0
Course Type: Voc/Tech
This course is focused on the relationship between computing hardware and machine language instruction sets. The course is organized into levels, beginning with logic gates on through microcode, machine language and assembly language. Several computer systems and microprocessors will be used as examples, in the course, along with their supporting hardware and organization of their instruction sets. Assembly language is studied in detail.
