Rationale
This course provides detail of computer system’s functional components, their characteristics, performance and interactions including system bus, different types of memory and input/output organization and CPU. This course also covers the architectural issues such as instruction set program and data types. On top that, the students are also introduced to the increasingly important area of parallel organization. This course also serves as a basic to develop hardware related projects. And hence it is an important course for all students of computer engineering branch.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Describe the organization of a computer system in terms of its main components.
ii. Identify various parts of a system memory hierarchy.
iii. Interface digital circuits to microprocessor systems.
iv. Relate design principles in instruction set design including RISC architectures.
