Computer Electronics Engineering Curriculum

  1. Jun 26, 2011 #1
    Hey guys, I'm kind of building from my previous post of self-study. I am interested in the construction/building of computer parts and sciences. I was wondering if anybody could help me construct a list of topics (in sequence preferably) along with appropriate texts to learn what's listed? I know it is asking a lot, but I can't seem to find anything beyond basic electronic foundations material. Maybe its just because I don't know what this topic entails?

    I would suggest the following sequence:

    1. Digital Logic: learn how logic gates/operations function

    e.g. https://www.amazon.com/Digital-Prin...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1309181255&sr=8-2

    2. Micro-controllers: understand how µcontrollers work, also familiarize yourself with the low level Assembly language.

    e.g. https://www.amazon.com/8051-Microcontroller-Embedded-Systems-2nd/dp/013119402X/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_2

    3. Computer Architecture: understand the different approaches to the system design as well as the functionality of the components

    e.g. ????????

    4. Digital Electronics: see how to convert logic design to actual circuits using CMOS transistors

    e.g. https://www.amazon.com/Microelectro...=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1309181154&sr=1-1



    Note that the books mentioned in #4 can be considered to be of advanced level for self learners.
