Welcome to Digital Systems. Experts predict that much of the future growth
in our discipline will be in the areas of computational appliances and ubiquitous computing.
These new services will combine hardware and software components in an integrated network
environment. In essence, the future belongs to what are traditionally called embedded systems
where computer intelligence is an instrumental component of a non-computational device such
as an automobile or a telephone. This course synthesises the fields of Computer Architecture, Computer Networks,
and Operating Systems. In this course you get virtual dirt under your finger nails by
developing a wireless network appliance.
