A few words regarding the sphere of computers in Electrical Engineering
The sphere of computers currently constitutes a major tier in Electrical Engineering studies. Besides personal computers, which serve as a standard work tool on any desktop, various types of computers are integrated into every electronic device offered in the modern age, as dedicated systems and circuits in hardware gadgets (FRGA and CPLD), designed as embedded processors and controllers that run code on various operating systems, such as VxWorks, RTOS, Linux and as specific silicon based systems (ASIC). The range of modern electrical and electronic industries, including: Communications, control, power supply systems, signal processing, compression, encryption, etc., are, in one way or another, materialized and implemented by a computer in one of the above stated configurations.
