Computers are now employed wherever repeated calculations or the processing of huge amounts of data is needed. The greatest applications are found in the military, scientific, and commercial fields. They have applications that range from mail sorting, through engineering design, to the identification and destruction of enemy targets. The advantages of digital computers include speed, accuracy, and manpower savings. Often computers are able to take over routine jobs and release personnel for more important work that cannot be handled by a computer. In this course you will learn about number systems in general, methods for converting numbers to different systems, the four basic logic gates and the special logic circuits that make up the foundation for digital equipment.
The course is designed as a refresher course in number system, and logical/arithmetical/shift operations. The different logic gates and flip flops also are discussed in detail.
