Description

Computers and Microprocessors: Made Simple covers the basic concepts and applications of computers and microprocessors.
The book discusses the basic concepts behind the architecture of a small digital computer including logic systems and the major functional blocks of the computer. The text also tackles the applications and operation of analog computers, electronic analog computers, and digital computers and its software (higher-level programming languages and flowcharts). Microprocessors are also discussed with regard to its evolution, architecture, types, and future trends.
Students taking computer courses will find the book useful.
