Computer architecture is an essential topic in the computer science curriculum. A major problem in teaching computer architecture and organization courses is how to help students connect their theoretical knowledge with the practical experience. Many useful computer programs are available that can help overcome this issue and can cover various aspects of Computer architecture. The programs range from simple simulators to specific teaching tools to advanced and specialized software. This paper presents a recent survey of such design tools that can be used for teaching purposes.
