18 18 Tendencies and perspectives increase of integration ration –smaller switching elements (transistors): 45->35nm –increase of switching elements’ number processors - over 1 billion de transistors memory – over 64-512 billion power reduction –intelligent power distribution –dynamic power control: energy where and when it is needed –frequency limitation multi-core and multi-thread architectures –from 2 cores/chip to 128 cores and more –symmetric and asymmetric architectures (see Intel and Power PC) network-on-chip –network communication inside the chip instead of parallel buses

19 19 Tendencies and perspectives memory hierarchies –more cache memory levels (inside the processor) –virtual memory –access request anticipation external memories of silicon –no more hard and floppy disks of DVDs, flash instead multi-processor architectures –parallel architectures –distributed architectures computer networks –Interne – an indispensable computer resource –wireless networks mobile and portable computers: –laptops, graphic tablets –PDA, GPS –intelligent phones

20 20 Computer's performance parameters Clock frequency, –Higher clock frequency = higher performance –Doubled every 24 month, until 2005 –Limited by the power consumption and disipation –Today – 2-3GHz Number of Cycles Per Second – CPI –Number if clock cycles for executing an instruction –Older computers: 5-120 cycles –New processors: 1, 0.5, 0.25 CPI Number of instructions per second –MIPS, FLOPS – million of instructions per second

21 21 Computer's performance parameters Execution time of a program, –See Benchmarks execution time of a transaction set –Read-modify-save operations executed on databases in a concurrent way Memory capacity and speed –Gbytes, Tbytes –Access time: 70ns, 15ns, 0.1ns I/O capabilities –HDD throughput Communication performances –bandwidth and speed

24 24 The multi-layer structure of a computer more abstraction levels/layers more access layers to the computer’s resources virtual machines: –a programming language –a set of functionalities –ex: Java Virtual Machine, BASIC machine, etc. why multi-layer: –easier and more efficient programming –different kind of users –complexity reduction through abstraction and functional decomposition

25 25 Multi-layered computer structure Application High level language Assembly language Operating system Conventional machine Microprogramming Digital circuites/hardware Translation Interpretation Interpretation (micro-program sequences) Interpretation (System calls) Decoding Translation (compile) Translation and interpretation (aggregate, compile) ISA
