Excerpt
Excerpt: Any device that contains a microprocessor or a microcontroller dependent on a timing sequence may encounter Y2K problems, as may a variety of software systems. Microcontrollers, which are pervasive in things like stop lights and automatic door locks, are microchips that control events by executing a series of instructions. Microprocessors, found in computers, communications equipment, building security systems, elevators, cash registers, and medical equipment, are microchips that control events by executing a series of instructions based on inputs received, or it makes decisions after processing data. Fixing the Y2K bug is complicated by the fact that computer hardware, operating system, applications, and interfaces system components are interdependently and inextricably intertwined. Date dependent software may be obscurely buried among millions of other lines of code of varying complexity. So, in order to fix the problem, all the date dependent areas in each system component must be identified and adjusted. Failing to correct even a single incident of code could compromise the entire system.
