Fall 2011-2012 Initials CSSE 232 CSSE 232 – Computer Architecture I Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Computer Science and Software Engineering Department Exam 1 Name: Section: 1 2 3 This exam is closed book . You are allowed to use the reference card from the book. You may not use a computer, calculator, pda, etc. during the examination, except you may use a calculator only for the last question. Write all answers on these pages — use the back if necessary. Be sure to show all work and document your code. Do not use instructions that we have not covered (e.g. no mult or div but you can use sll , srl ). MIPS code is judged both by its correctness and its efficiency. You may use MIPS pseu- doinstructions when writing MIPS code. However, the length of your instruction sequence is judged by the actual instructions to which the sequence expands. All numbers are expressed in decimal unless specifically stated otherwise. You are encouraged to read the entire exam before beginning.
