Goals

This course aims at presenting the advanced hardware mechanisms that are used for optimized program execution in computers.
These mechanisms allow to drastically increase processor and memory subsystem performance, and are also required to understand on chip or on board communication infrastructure. Other hardware mechanisms are necessary to understand more system related problems, such as parallel programming and virtual memory handling in operating systems.
