A bit about Computers in Electrical Engineering
The field of computers currently constitutes a main tier in Electrical Engineering studies. Besides personal computers, which are a standard tool on every desk, various types of computers are integrated in every electrical appliance and device offered by the modern age, as dedicated systems and circuits in programmed hardware devices (FGPA & CPLD), as embedded processors and controllers that run code on various operating systems, such as: VxWorks, RTOS, Linus, and ASIC systems. The range of modern electrical and electronic domains, which include: Communications, control, power supplies, signal processing, compression, encryption, etc., are materialized and implemented in one way or another, by a computer in one of the above stated configurations.
