View Resource Controlling The Real World With Computers: Control And Embedded Systems

For a detailed explanation of how devices are used to control various appliances, motors, and other real world products, this site is worth a visit. Sixteen sections comprise the site, and each includes background information and an example experiment. Although certain equipment is required for the experiments, much can be learned simply from reading the introductions.

View Resource The Storage Spectrum

Virtually every modern computer system incorporates several different storage technologies to process data efficiently. A gentle introduction to data storage is given on this site, part of Red Hat, Inc.'s Linux System Administration Primer. The topics covered include: "The Storage Spectrum," "CPU Registers," "Cache Memory," "Cache Levels," "Main Memory - RAM," "Hard Drives," and "Off-Line Backup...

View Resource Private Circuits: Securing Hardware against Probing Attacks

A paper presented at the 2003 International Cryptology Conference considers the vulnerability of embedded cryptosystems to side channel attacks, which are different from normal security violations because they involve monitoring parts of the hardware system instead of the software. The authors propose the design of private circuits that are resistant to such attacks.

View Resource TWiCE Undergraduate Experience in Research and Community Service

TWiCE, The Women in Computer Engineering, is a project that has proved effective in the retention of women in an undergraduate computer science engineering program. Members of TWiCE apply their developing knowledge to community service and serve as role models for their communities. Research suggests that female students "are likely to report choosing a major that will make it possible for them...

View Resource Magnetic Core Memory Principles

A researcher from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Glasgow provides this website on Magnetic RAM (MRAM) -- a non-volatile memory storage system similar to Flash memory except that it uses less power and switches faster. Predicting that "2005 could see mass production of MRAM parts" to be used in powering instant-on computers and computers that are in stand-by...
