STATEMENT OF PURPOSE “Time and tide wait for no man”, this we all know. Hence, having done an inspiring four-year course in Electronic Engineering, I would like to put to use this knowledge to do my Masters in Science. This would give me the leading edge in technology and the practical low-down and information I require. For the past few decades man is advancing into the unknown realms of technology and science. This advancement is to make life easy and to increase human comfort at home and at work and I would like to be an integral part of such betterment. For this, research would be of prime importance with hands on experience in real time applications accompanied by in-depth knowledge of the subject. Technology, today, means power in the widest sense of the term and not merely the power of mind. And it is this power potential that has given it the status it now enjoys. While all this is generally true, since India has been a late comer in the field of science, she has to make up an enormous leeway. Ever since I was in school I would see my father work with a room full of electronic gizmos on the ship (he is a Radio Officer in the merchant navy) and this is what triggered my fascination for electronics and later computers. The powers they yielded always amazed me. Consequently I decided to attain my Bachelors degree in electronic engineering as it opened up many possibilities and interesting challenges for the reason that science and technology are the roots of many interesting scientific and technical activities. During my engineering course I was introduced to the concepts of microprocessors and microcontrollers and I had taken an instant liking to these subjects. At the same time I became a member of IEEE and by way of their articles learnt a lot more about microprocessors and the role they play in everyday life. It heightened my interest in topics like RISC, CISC and Parallel Processing. All this together aided my decision to specialize in Computer Engineering especially in Computer Architecture & Parallel Processors. Since then I’ve covered numerous topics in microprocessors such as the Intel 8085, 8086,80386 and
