Though a distinction is often made between Computer Organization and Architecture, it is difficult to give precise definition for these terms. Computer Architecture refers to those attributes of a system visible to a programmer. Computer Organization refers to the operational units and their interconnections that realize the architectural specifications. As an example, it is an architectural design issue whether a computer will have a multiply instruction. It is an organizational issue whether that instruction will be implemented by a special multiply unit or by the method of repeated addition by using the add unit of the system. Though these concepts help us to get some idea about Organization and Architecture, in this study materials, no specific distinction has been made between organization and architecture. << Previous | First | Last | Next >>

COA (Web Course), IIT Guwahati Outline of the Course (COA) Print this page << Previous | First | Last | Next >> The course is subdivided into several modules. Module 1 is Introduction. In the first lecture of this module, I have started with a very tiny hypothetical computer through which I tried to introduced most of the terms that are used in computer organization and architecture, and the working principle of a computer. Also I tried to explain the concept of execution of a program in this computer. In this course material, the term computer always means digital computer, and these concepts are not related to analog computer. How the information is stored in digital computer is explained next. It also contains some historical information regarding the evaluation of first generation computer and the changes of technologies to achieve the computer of current generation. In Module 2, the implementation issues of some of the operations like addition, multiplication, etc. are explained. Those who are familiar with the implementation issues of Arithmetic and Logic operations, they may skip Module 2. << Previous | First | Last | Next >>
