Teaching multitasking to electronics and computing students

  Although widely used in the solution of engineering problems, multitasking is conceptually as complicated as parallel processing. A simple system that covers the key features of multitasking in a short time is presented. A description is given of its use with a final year undergraduate class of electronics students who take computing options.
