Translated from the Japanese.
This guide tackles microprocessors (the brain inside all computers), binary, microprocessor architecture, digital operations, even basic, low-level programming. With the aid of a comic story starring Ayumi Katsuragi in her quest to understand her game-playing computer opponent, readers will learn the basics of computers and digital logic. College-level topics like how the CPU processes information and makes decisions; how to make sense of binary; what logic gates are and how they can be combined to make functioning machines; how circuits are used to perform arithmetic or to remember information; memory and interrupts; how data passes through the bus; the type and nature of digital operations; even a bit of assembly and other programming languages.
