AIMS AND CONTENT
The student will acquire the necessary skills to understand how high-level programs are translated into the language of computers.
The choice of instruction set architecture is a key aspect. It was decided to adopt the RISC-V architecture as it offers a simple, elegant, modern, open source model of growing interest even in the non-academic field. At the end of the course the student will be able to:
write and interpret simple RISC-V assembler programs;
understand how a computer translates a high-level language into machine language;
analyze program performance considering aspects such as efficient use of cache, vectorization, and multithreaded programming;
use a compiler effectively.
Furthermore students will acquire basic skills on learning to learn, basic personal and social skills through didactics for groups, cases/problems
Lectures, classroom exercises, ongoing assignment with delivery and evaluation.
Instant polling will be used for self-assessment and didactics for groups and cases/problems.
