High-Level Overview of CPS 3340:

Inside the Computer

- Introduce design and implementation of computer hardware
- Introduce major design advances in last decade: parallel processing of instructions and hierarchical memory organization
- Focus on prototypical modern architecture
- Not on specific computer brands (range)
- Not on electrical circuits (blueprint)
- Final Presentations integrate current issues

- How are high-level programs (C, Java) understood by hardware?
- How are they executed by hardware?
- What is interface between computer’s software and hardware?
- How does software tell hardware to perform tasks?
- How can programmer improve program performance?
- How can hardware designer improve hardware performance?

- “Computers” are everywhere today
- Innumerable individual computing applications, e.g.:
- ATMs
- Computers in vehicles (steering/braking/motion sensors)
- PDAs, Cellphones, Blackberries, IPods…
- Baby toys, kitchen appliances, …

- Desktop/Personal Computers (best-known)
- Servers (widest range in cost/capability)
- Embedded Computers (widest range use/power)

- Desktop computers
- Personal computers (best-known)
- General purpose, variety of software
- Subject to cost/performance tradeoff

- Server computers
- Network based; Multiple users access via network
- Execute many small tasks at once (web); execute one huge job (weather forecast supercomputer)
- High capacity, performance, reliability
- Range
- Small file servers
- Supercomputers

- What is a Cluster?
- “Collection of interconnected stand-alone computers working together as a single, integrated computing resource”

- Cluster consists of
- Nodes
- Network
- OS
- Cluster middleware

- Standard components
- Avoiding expensive proprietary components

- Embedded computers
- Hidden as components of systems
- Examples
- Computer in your car
- Processor in your cell phone

- Stringent power/performance/cost constraints

- All computing applications have a few key components:
- The computer (box) to do the computing
- Input devices (e.g. keyboard, mouse)
- Output devices (e.g. display, printer)
- Input/Output devices (disks, networks)

The Basis for Machine Communication:

Introduction to Binary Numbers

- Humans communicate via speech, text, image
English alphabet has 26 letters: a-z

Letter sequences form words: tree

Word sequences form discourse units (sentences, paragraphs):

Some trees have yellow leaves

- Machines communicate via electrical signals (conveyed through wires or wireless EM waves) (power supplied by current, battery)
Machine alphabet has 2 letters: 0, 1

(high/low voltage, on/off, true/false)

Letter sequences form meaningful units:

Data: 00113

Instruction: 0001000110011 3 + 3

Program: 000100011001111 swap two

010101000000001 variable

000010001010101 values

- Machine Language (ML) is easy for computers but time-consuming for humans
- Assembly Language (AL) was developed as a “more natural” symbolic code for ML
ADD 3,3 0001000110011

- Assemblers are programs developed to automatically translate AL to ML

- AL still thinking like a machine
- 1 AL instruction for every 1 ML instruction
- Why not develop a higher-level code for AL?

- High-level Programming Languages (PL) were developed as symbolic codes for AL
C, Java, Perl, etc.

- Compilers are programs developed to automatically translate PL to AL

- In grade school: decimal system
- To “interpret” a digit sequence: assign each digit to a column, multiply each digit by the column, add them all together

2 x 100 + 3 x10 +7 x1’s = 237

- Decimal System = Base 10

- Base 10 uses digits 0 – 9
- Largest number represented with 3 columns?
- How do we represent a larger number?

- For any Base B: use digits 0 – B-1 (digits greater than 9 replaced by letters)
- Each column represents B raised to an exponent, increasing to the left

- Binary system (base 2) uses digits 0 – 1
- Machine Language uses base 2

Invalid

Convert 100111base 2 to ???base 10

- Assign each digit to a column (columns represent base raised to exponents increasing to left)
- Multiply each digit by the column, then add them all together

1 x 25 + 0 x 24 + 0 x 23 + 1 x 22 + 1 x 21 + 1 x 20 =

32 + 0 + 0 + 4 + 2 + 1 =

39base10

Convert 237base10 to ??????base 2

- Find the largest power of 2 in the decimal number (trial and error)
- Record this largest power in its column
- Subtract this largest power: 237 – 128 = 109

- REPEAT 1-3 with remainder, until 0
- Record 0 for all powers not subtracted
109 45 13 5 1

- 64 = 26- 32 = 25- 8 = 23- 4 = 22 - 1 = 20

- Octal system (base 8) uses digits 0 – 7

What’s the base 10 interpretation of 2378?

2 x 82 + 3 x 81 + 7 x 80 = 159base10

The interpretation of any digit sequence is dependent on the number system

- Hexadecimal system (base 16) uses digits 0 – 9, A-F

What’s the base 10 interpretation of 2BD16?

2 x 162 + 11 x 161 + 13 x 160 = 701base10

The interpretation of any symbolic sequence is dependent on the number system

- Machines communicate via electrical signals, which have 2 values: high/low voltage
- Use Base 2 to represent machine language: 0, 1
- Binary number sequences (multiple signals) create larger units:
Data: 00113

Instruction: 0001000110011 3 + 3

Program: (sequences of instructions)

- A Machine Language instruction is a command for an operation to be performed
- Boolean Logic (BL):represents how operation carried out on inputs to yield output (Action of Operation)
- Logic Equation: describes action: output produced by combining inputs and logic operators
- Logic Block: displays action: output produced by combining inputs and logic gates
- gates encoded on chips with conductive material

- Truth Table: enumerates action: output produced by all possible input combinations

C = A AND B

C = A ● B

C = A B
