Home Page of Spring 2017 EE380

This is the official home page for EE380 (AKA, CS380). There is only one section, meeting TR 2:00-3:15 in room 153 Chemistry-Physics Building.

The final exam is Tuesday, 5/2/17, @ 3:30PM. If you want to take it at a different time, email a request before the exam time, and the prefered alternative time is 10:30AM in 108/203 Marksbury.

There are two optional 1-hour meetings over in 108 Marksbury with a variety of times to pick from (check here schedule for changes). The parallel processing material (slides for which are posted in the reference materials here), will be presented at 9:00AM and 1:30PM Monday, April 24, and 3:30PM Tuesday, April 25 -- you can also tour the supercomputing facilities in the lab at that time. There will also be review sessions for going over the first two exams 9:00AM and 1:30PM on Wednesday, April 26, amd 3:30 Thursday, April 27 although you can pick-up your exams any time Prof. Dietz is in 108 or 203 Marksbury and all of class on Thursday, April 27, will be review for the final. The final exam is comprehensive, but emphasis is on the material after the second exam.

The second exam (exam 1) was in class on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. We reviewed the material for it in class on Thursday, April 6, 2017. The exam covered assembly language programming, arithmetic, and the single-cycle design.

The first exam (exam 0) was in class on Tuesday, February 28, 2017. We reviewed the material for it in class on Thursday, February 23, 2017. The exam covered up to and including the material on performance analysis.

There was no class on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. We will have a make-up later....

All course materials will be posted here. I will be significantly changing online material for the course during the Spring 2017 semester (in particular, adding a bit of verilog), so keep watching here....
