Chapter 4 The Processor
Book Name: Computer Organization and Design The Hardware/Software Interface Fifth Edition
Authors: David A Patterson and John L. Hennessy

Upon the successful completion of this module, each student will be able to:

· Demonstrate an understanding of interfacing and communication: I/O fundamentals: handshaking, buffering, programmed I/O, interrupt-driven I/O; interrupt structures: vectored and prioritized, interrupt acknowledgment; external storage, physical organization, and drives; buses: bus protocols, arbitration, direct memory access (DMA); introduction to networks; multimedia support; raid architectures

· Demonstrate an understanding of functional organization: Implementation of simple data paths; control unit: hardwired realization vs. micro programmed realization; instruction pipelining; introduction to instruction-level parallelism (ILP)

· Demonstrate an understanding of contemporary architectures: Hand-held devices; embedded systems; trends in processor architecture

Assignment: Need this complete in about a week.

Write a 3-5 page paper on modern implementations of pipelining and apply the concepts that you have learned in Module 6.
