Unlike us, microprocessors have not grown up with the idea that 10 is
Microprocessors and other digital circuits use only two digits - 0 and
1 - but why? Ideally, we would like our microprocessors to do everything at infinite speed and never make a mistake. Error free or high speed - which would you feel is the more important?
It’s your choice but I would go for error free every time, particularly
So let’s start by having a look at one effect of persuading micro-
