10/12/06 - Homework 1 was handed back during lecture on Tuesday (Oct. 10). If you didn't pick yours up, please e-mail Sat so he can give it to you. Also, solutions for hw 1 have been e-mailed to everyone via the course mailing list. Make sure you check your inbox for them.
10/10/06 - A practice midterm has been posted here. This gives you a general flavor of the types of problems you can expect on the exam. However, this does not mean that only these types of problems will be on the exam (all reading and lecture material up to Thursday, October 5 is fair game). I will post the answer key in a few days as to encourage you to work on it without having the answers immediately available (to better simulate a testing environment).
10/9/06 - The details for project 1 have been posted here! Again, it is due on Tuesday, October 24 at Noon. Submission is via e-mail to Sat. If you have any questions about the project, contact Sat.

First, the first midterm will be in class next Tuesday, October 17 (12:30p - 1:50p). It will cover lecture and reading material up to and including that of last Thursday (Oct. 5). This includes material on performance, ISA's, and pipelining. Second, the 1st project will be due on Tuesday, October 24, at noon. More details about the project will be posted soon.
