Multimedia Components forthe Visualization of Dynamic Behavior in Computer Architectures

Peter Marwedel, Birgit Sirocic

University of Dortmund, Germany

{marwedel | sirocic} @ls12.cs.uni-dortmund.de


Starting point l.jpg

Starting point

Experienced limitation of classical static media (such as books) in computer architecture class: No visualization of dynamic behavior


Project goals l.jpg

Project goals

  • Visualization of dynamic behavior

  • Interactive-ness

  • Screen layout appropriate for classroom use

  • Availability for students

  • Easy integration of material into courses using Hennessy/Patterson‘s books

  • Sustained usability of the material

  • Taking learning characteristics of students into account, who are less familiar with the internals of computers.


Implementation l.jpg

Implementation

  • Manpower for developing simulator not available

    • building on top of HADES simulator from the University of Hamburg

  • JAVA-based approach, enables Applet-design

The actual presentation focused on demonstrating ravi components pipeline, mesi, and cacheprotocol. These components can be downloaded at //ls12.cs.uni-dortmund.de/ravi


Results l.jpg

Results

  • Available from our Web-site//ls12.cs.uni-dortmund.de/ravi

  • Interactive visualization of the dynamic behavior has been appreciated very much by students as well as colleagues.

  • Proving improved learning success seems to be extremely hard.


Conclusion l.jpg

Conclusion

  • Interactive multimedia components have been developed which help understanding the dynamics of computer architectures.

  • The approach will be extended to other areas of computer engineering, such as embedded systems.
