Assembly Language Step-by-step: Programming with DOS and by Jeff Duntemann

By Jeff Duntemann

It is a booklet i'd hugely suggest, and have already got urged, to a person with an curiosity in what is going on below the hood of desktops. it is written very sincerely, begins on the very begining and assumes not anything. then again, when you have a few wisdom you will not brain examining throughout the bits you realize as the e-book is particularly humerous and relaxing to learn. certainly the simplest textual content e-book i've got learn in decades.

Sample text

It's like the addresses on a street: The bit on the corner is number 0 Silicon Alley, and the bit next door is number 1, and so on. You don't have to knock on the door of bit 0 and ask which bit it is, then go to the next door and ask there too, until you find the bit you want. If you have the address, you can zip right down the street and park square in front of the bit you intend to visit. Each chip has a number of pins coming out of it. ) The bulk of these pins are called address pins. One pin is called a data pin.

2. But that's all done internally to the chip. As far as you on the outside are concerned, once you've applied the address to the address pins, voila! The data pin will contain a voltage representing the value of the bit you requested. If that bit contained a binary 1, the data pin will contain a 5-volt signal; otherwise, the binary 0 bit will be represented by 0 volts. Memory Access Time Chips are graded by how long it takes for the data to appear on the data pin after you've applied the address to the address pins.

More is better, and we're bringing some staggeringly powerful technology to bear on the creation of ever-denser memory systems. Some physicists warn that the laws of physics may soon call a time-out in the game, since the transistors are now so small that it gets hard pushing more than one electron at a time through them. At that point some truly ugly limitations of life called quantum mechanics begin to get in the way. We'll find a way around these limitations (we always do), but in the process the whole nature of computer memory may change.
