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