This quiz will be looking at requirements for better communication between computer hardware and software. This 2nd quiz on Computer organization and architecture lets you know how exactly each instruction is executed at the micro-level. For example, knowing the data flow, timing analysis, memory hierarchy, trade-offs between execution cycles, hardware requirements, and costs, Even software-hardware trade-offs could be known.
Computer Organization which is different from Computer Architecture is concerned with the structure and behavior of a computer system as seen by the user. The Computer Organization tells us how exactly all the units in the system are arranged and interconnected. At its fundamental level, a computer consists of a CPU(Central Processing Unit), ALU (Arithmetic and Logical Unit), Input and Output unit, and Memory unit.
This quiz is very broad and this is just a summary, find more about Computer Architecture and Organization in quiz one. This quiz will help you understand a lot about computer systems and thereby help you prepare for any upcoming examinations or tests.
Best of luck!
