What you will discover:



the difference between the analog and digital worlds
what logic gates are and how to make them from transistors

Overview

What you will discover:



the difference between the analog and digital worlds
what logic gates are and how to make them from transistors
where numbers come from and why the Babylonian's counting systems gave them so many problems when it rained
what integrated circuits, circuit boards, hybrids, and multichip modules are, how they are made, and what they're used for
how to survive the experience of assertion-level logic, positive logic, negative logic, and pass-transistor logic
where computers came from and what Charles Babbage and his lady friend did in their spare time
superconductors, diamond substrates, optical interconnection technologies, virtual hardware and much, much more!
