COMP 220 - Computer Organization and Assembly Language


A detailed look at the internal organization and logic of computers. The first part of the course focuses on performance measures. The programming portion considers a common assembly language and how instructions are translated into binary instructions of a traditional 32- or 64-bit machine language. Memory addressing modes and stack behavior related to subroutine calls are discussed in detail as are integer and floating point representations. A major portion of the course “builds” a computer from the smallest logic gates to a complete circuit that can handle basic mathematical and logic tasks.
