    In the mid-1980s, the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) funded a number of large computer architecture projects to be carried out by partnerships of universities and industrial organizations. One of DARPA's several goals for this type of research collaboration was to expedite technology transfer from academia to industry. Another goal was to improve university access to the design ...

    Traditionally, undergraduates in electrical and computer engineering study the design and implementation of a simple computer and then develop their own designs. In recent years, computer design courses have for the most part taken a simulation-only approach. Rapid prototyping techniques and a new generation of large field-programmable logic devices (FPLDs) enabled an educational approach that com... View full abstract»

    The subject matter of computer architecture has grown in breadth and depth, forcing teachers to decide what to include and what to omit-and even to justify the course itself. The author makes a strong case for including a broad-based course early in every computing student's program View full abstract»
