Homeworks and Exams

Make sure you always show your work. This way you may get partial credit in case the final result is wrong. In any event, please try to prove your statement(s).

Failure to prove things earns you only 50% of the maximum for that particular problem in case the answer is correct, and nothing in case the answer is wrong. In case you can't prove something show at least your attempts or try to give an explanation of why you gave that particular answer.

Computer Architecture Labs

The lab is based on the MIPS architecture. The book "Computer Organization and Design: the hardware/software interface" by David A. Patterson, John L. Hennessy, covers the MIPS architecture in detail.

You are required to print out the lab documentation and the lab manual available online (see below).
  • The SPIM manual (needed for the first five labs). The SPIM web page provides additional information on SPIM.
  • Lab1 (Getting Started with SPIM)
  • Lab2 (MIPS: The Virtual Machine)
  • Lab3 (Control Stuctures in MIPS)
  • Lab4 (Register Usage and Procedures)
  • Lab5 (Memory Issues)
