Lecture material

Here are the lecture videos in SureStream. Requires RealPlayer and preferrably fast connection to TUT-network. Also availabe are lecture notes in pdf.

If the slides will not come with the video, open them separately in the RealPlayer below the video! You need to hand-wind them then, sorry!

Here is some hard material to read:

  • Vincent P. Heuring and Harry F. Jordan: Computer Systems Design and Architecrure (chapters 1-9), Addison-Wesley, 1997.
  • Michael J. Flynn: Computer Architecture; Pipelined and Parallel Processor Design (chapters 1-2, 4, 7, and some parts of 10), Jones and Bartlett Publishers, 1995.
  • Possible other literature (to be announced in the lectures)
