How Computers Work

Availability: Ready to download

Computers are the most complex machines that have ever been created. This book will tell you how they work, and no technical knowledge is required. It explains in great detail the operation of a simple but functional computer. Although transistors are mentioned, relays are used in the example circuitry for simplicity. Did you ever wonder what a bit, a pixel, a latch, a wor Computers are the most complex machines that have ever been created. This book will tell you how they work, and no technical knowledge is required. It explains in great detail the operation of a simple but functional computer. Although transistors are mentioned, relays are used in the example circuitry for simplicity. Did you ever wonder what a bit, a pixel, a latch, a word (of memory), a data bus, an address bus, a memory, a register, a processor, a timing diagram, a clock (of a processor), an instruction, or machine code is? Unlike most explanations of how computers work which are a lot of analogies or require a background in electrical engineering, this book will tell you precisely what each of them is and how each of them works without requiring any previous knowledge of computers, programming, or electronics. This book starts out very simple and gets more complex as it goes along, but everything is explained. The processor and memory are mainly covered.

    Maurizio Manetti

    Pessimo, noioso, ripetitivo... Spesso non chiaro in cosa gli esempi si prefiggono di mostrare. Praticamente un computer ūüėĀ No, se volete un bel libro sull'argomento che spiega le cose in maniera decisamente appassionante, consiglio piuttosto "Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software" di Charles Petzold.

    excellent, pretty short book about how the simplest of computers work at the smallest level, starting with relays
