Home Page of Spring 2018 EE480

This is the official home page for EE480 (AKA, CS480G, CPE480), Advanced Computer Architecture. There is only one section, meeting MWF 3:00-3:50 in room 207 Ralph G Anderson

In many ways, the content of EE480 is very similar to that of EE380, but with one huge difference: what EE380 overviews, you will work with in-depth here, even specifying hardware implementation details to the gate level. You've no doubt heard that EE480 requires you to complete a relatively large-scale processor design project using Verilog -- yes, you will. In fact, you'll have to do several large projects. In general, you'll have to work a lot harder in here than you did in EE380, but it's worth the effort.

Class on Monday, March 5, 2018, was review for the midterm exam, which will be in class on Wednesday, March 7, 2018.

There was no class on Monday, January 29 nor on Wednesday, January 31 as Professor Dietz was at the Electronic Imaging 2018 conference.

All course materials will be posted here... note that I said will be....
