Computers are large digital systems
A group of components, in this case digital circuits or blocks, that are integrated together to achieve a certain function. used to process digitized information
Information that are made of discrete units, where each unit is represented by symbols from a finite possible set of symbols. In computers, that set is usually the binary digits, 0 and 1. based on a user defined sequence of commands (i.e. the program). To begin to understand the components of a computer, consider the following example:
We want to have an automated (no or minimum human interaction) method to find the average height of students in classes. How can we devise a digital system to do this? |
So let us come up with the basic building blocks for this computer.
