Formatted abstract

This thesis describes the design and implementation of a low–cost, consumer oriented Internet access device known as the ZBOARD. This product is designed to allow access to a subset of the Internet’s information and services at the minimum possible cost. The ZBOARD departs from the majority of existing products by implementing a software modem using the system processor rather than external hardware. A full analysis of the system’s design and performance has been completed, and a number of design improvements have been suggested. While the ZBOARD’s development is not complete, it serves as a useful “proof of concept”, and the design is soon to undergo commercial development.
