Mini project : ROM based sine wave generator : presentation transcript
This is a Mini Project presentation introducing a ROM-Based Sine Wave Generator. It is part of the 2009/10 BEng in Digital Systems and Computer Engineering (course number 2ELE0065) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. This project requires the establishment of a communication protocol between two 68000-based microcomputer systems. Using ‘C’, students will write software to control all aspects of comp

Derelict site simulation
This Powerpoint driven simulation takes participants through a structured series of common dilemmas faced by managers looking after derelict sites. Risks must be appraised within resource constraints (and the influence of chance). Decisions taken affect subsequent events. Can you steer the site safely through this maze? The resource can be used in the teaching of lawyers about occupiers’ liability, as well as construction and real estate students and also environmental management students. The

Homely Remedy Protocols: A solution to the supply and administration of non-prescription medicinal p

However, when described, it is recognised that their use are inappropriate for non prescription medicinal products or for use outside NHS settings. This paper thus describes a suitable alternative to Patient Group Directions, for use in research participants requiring non-prescription medicinal products in their own homes, the Homely Remedy Protocol.
