Skills to be acquired in this module
Professional competence
The students:
  • Comprehend special concepts and methods of low-level programming of tightly
  • coupled computer systems in C and their translation into NASM assembly language
  • Design and implement programs in C independently and systematically translate them into a computer architecture-specific assembly language
  • Implement machine-oriented software with appropriate programming and compilation techniques and concepts
  • Recognize the relation of technical and practical computer science as well as the relations of high- and low-level programming
Methodological competence
The students:
  • understand aspects of the practical and theoretical computer science
  • understand the connection between high level language constructs and low level language constructs
  • ranslate C programs into NASM programs
Social competence
The students:
  • Solve problems in small teams
  • Present their solutions to the members of the tutorial
  • Discuss their different solutions with members of the tutorial
The students:
  • Accept criticism - Question their initial solutions in the light of newly learned methods
Module contents
  • Application areas of machine-oriented programming
  • Concepts of the programming language C - Programming in C
  • Setup and structure of tightly-coupled computer systems
  • Intel processor architecture
  • Assembly languages, in particular NASM assembly language
  • Systematical translation of programs from C to NASM assembly language
This module builds a bridge between technical and practical computer science aspects and high-level and machine-oriented programming. The knowledge and skills learned in this module are relevant for machine-oriented system programming, e.g. in realising operating systems and translations of programming languages.
