Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of this subject is to acquaint students with a technical equipment of computers and principles of operation of individuals parts. The selected principles are demonstrated on microcomputers, personal computers and GPU (available architectures). Students by completion of this course will get basic knowledges about computer parts and they will understand the base principles of the computer operation. During practical parts of course students will learn to programm microcomputer, multicore computer and GPU. The will also learn the base principles of the assembly language programming.
