Computer architectures

The course is taught in English. Mandatory course for Laurea Magistrale in Computer Science Engineering, in the first year and first semester of the course. The purpose of the course is to provide a better knowledge on the elaboration system architecture, with a particular attention to microprocessor based systems. The course analyzes the several components of an elaboration system: from the microprocessor internal architecture, up to system bus for peripheral devices management.

Modalità di esame: Prova orale obbligatoria; Prova scritta a risposta aperta o chiusa tramite PC con l'utilizzo della piattaforma di ateneo Exam integrata con strumenti di proctoring (Respondus); Prova scritta tramite l'utilizzo di vLAIB e piattaforma di ateneo Exam integrata con strumenti di proctoring (Respondus). ;

Computer architectures

Due to the lockdown and social distancing requirements, the implementation of the exam could be affected by the way it can be run, as well as by the tools and restrictions available at the time of a call(s). In such a case, the flow will be implemented under any "new restrictions" as much as possible to be consistent with the rules holding in the years 2019-20, i.e. before the COVID-19 era. In particular, the way all of this will be run, depends on the choice of the hw/sw tools that will be chosen. It is for sure that all students should have a stable internet connection, one optional additional device with a second webcam, a microphone in addition to a computing system (i.e., a laptop with working webcam), which is compatible with the tools that will be used, likely polito’s virtualclass and zoom.us client, plus additional software (if any) as indicated through portale della didattica by professors. Once more, in such a case, the professors will inform the students through portale della didattica and as soon as possible, about the flow, the way how the rules are implemented and the requirements for attending the exam remotely. An example of implementation of the rules in a remote exam situation (summer 2020, i.e. february 2020 with minor variations, call) is found at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3i1yrezbgwswg3w/AACDck2j1ree_3ha2I-deQjoa?dl=0 The goal, as stated above, is to try to replicate as much as possible, the flow of the exam as it was before the COVID-19 era.

Exam: Compulsory oral exam; Computer-based written test with open-ended questions or multiple-choice questions using the Exam platform and proctoring tools (Respondus); Written test via vLAIB using the Exam platform and proctoring tools (Respondus).;
