Embedded systems are involved in almost every facet of modern life. Cell phones, pagers, PDAs, answering machines, microwave ovens, televisions, VCRs, CD/DVD players, video Game consoles; set top boxes, GPS devices, network routers, fax machines, cameras, and music Synthesizers, planes, spacecraft, boats, and cars all contain embedded processors. Logic Analyzers and digital storage oscilloscopes utilize embedded processors to support real-time Operation. Even PCs, which are designed around powerful CPUs such as the Intel Pentium 4, Contain embedded systems. Floppy and hard disk drives, CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives, And external peripherals such as printers, scanners, and other SCSI, USB, or IEEE devices all Contain embedded processors.

During 1998, microprocessor manufacturers sold on the order of 100 million processors for use As computer CPUs. In comparison, during the same time frame, microprocessor manufacturers Sold more than 3 billion embedded processors, primarily consisting of 32-bit, 16-bit, 8-bit, and 4-bit devices. The tremendous number of applications for embedded computing has given rise to High demand for engineers with experience in designing and implementing embedded systems. This course will give students hands-on experience and opportunities for experimentation in this Exciting field.

Today, the average U.S. household has over 10 embedded computers, not to mention the Automobile - late model cars may contain as many as 65 embedded microprocessors,  Controlling such tasks as antilock braking, climate control, engine control, audio system control,  Airbag deployment, etc

Demand for embedded system designers is large, and is growing rapidly.
