We will be using the second edition of Patterson and Hennessy's Computer Organization and Design book ("COD").  Try to find the third printing. (Don't get "Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach"  by the same authors; it is intended for a graduate course!).

We are also requiring The C Programming Language, Second Edition by Kernighan and Ritchie ("K&R"), and will make references its sections in the reading assignments. Other books are also suitable if you are already comfortable with them, but our pre-lecture quizzes will be based on K&R.

The subjects covered in this course include C and assembly language programming, how higher level programs are translated into machine language, the general structure of computers, interrupts, caches, address translation, CPU design, and related topics. The only prerequisite is that you have taken Computer Science 61B, or at least have solid experience with a C-based programming language.
