Assignment 1 (CSE 203-Computer Organization & Architecture)

11.      What is computer organization?
   Answer: It is concerned with the way the hardware components operate and the way they are connected together to form the computer system. The various components are assumed to be in place and the task is to investigate the organizational structure to verify that the computer parts operate.

22.       What is computer architecture?
   Answer: It is concerned with structure and behavior of computer as seen by they  user. It includes the information formats, the instruction set, and techniques for addressing of a computer system is concerned with the specifications of the various modules, such as processors and memories and structuring them together into a computer system.

3.What are the benefits of studying computer organization & computer architecture?
·         Suppose a graduate enter the industry and is asked to select the most cost-effective computer for use throughout a large organization. An understanding of the implications of spending more for various alternatives, such as a larger cache or a higher processor clock rate, is essential to making the decision.
·         Many processors are not used in PC’s or servers but in embedded systems. a designer may program a processor in C that is embedded in some real time or larger system such as an intelligent automobile electronics controller. Debugging the system may require the use of a logic analyzer that displays the relationship between interrupt requests from engine sensors and machine-level code.
·         Concepts used in computer architecture find application in other courses. In particular the way in which the computer provides architectural support for programming languages and operating system facilities reinforces concepts from those areas.

4.     What are the Fact that Prohibit up to speed up?

          •Increase Cost.
          •Different combination between Hardware.
          •OS Compatibility.
