This book is the revised edition of the classic that introduced the world of computation, albeit in the form of microcomputers, to thousands of readers.

The binary arithmetic, CPU and memory architecture, logical operations, instruction sets and programming, are concepts that are still relevant to modern computing.5/5(4).

This book is not available. Out of Print--Limited Availability. Presented in this text are the fundamental concepts of microcomputers and application software in a format that includes a text-workbook and an integrated software package.

High-performance microcomputer systems are used widely in business, in engineering, in “smart” or intelligent machines employed in the factory and office, and in military electronics systems.

In the early s, small computers that fit in a pocket yet provide the power of a desktop personal computer were introduced. A microcomputer is a small, relatively inexpensive computer with a microprocessor as its central processing unit (CPU).

It includes a microprocessor, memory and minimal input/output (I/O) circuitry mounted on a single printed circuit board (PCB). Microcomputers became popular in the s and s with the advent of increasingly powerful microprocessors. eBook is an electronic version of a traditional print book THE can be read by using a personal computer or by using an eBook reader.

(An eBook reader can be a software application for use on a computer such as Microsoft's free Reader application, or a book-sized computer THE is used solely as a reading device such as Nuvomedia's Rocket eBook.).
