Arquitecturas Avanzadas de Hardware
(Arq. Av. H/W)


"To obtain a significant range of performance, the primary approach is to increase the number of processors, and the economies of scale make this very attractive".

CULLER, D., PAL SINGH, J.

This course will introduce and discuss the organisation and architecture of a parallel computing system. Rather than focusing in the latest, brand-new models, the approach is to establish the core foundations in a stepwise manner, starting from the basic principles and the fundamental concepts.

The course will show the evolution of these concepts to exploit the architectural and technological features that allow for faster architectures.
