hardware — A physical part of a computer system.

Synopsis

hardware ::= [-]

Description

A hardware element identifies some physical component of a computer system. Even though DocBook provides a broad range of inlines for describing the various software components of a system, it provides relatively few for describing hardware.

If you need to identify a number of different hardware components, you may wish to consider extending DocBook, or at least using the role attribute to further classify hardware.
