This course will teach you digital electronics, starting with the invention of vacuum tubes (in 1904) and early programming languages, until the modern era where powerful microprocessors can run complex operating systems.
What is the difference between a microcontroller and a microprocessor and how do they work
How is that possible that in just a century, big and ugly vacuum tubes got replaced by transistors, which then got shrunk to the size of a rice grain and integrated on a piece of silicon, giving birth to the first commercially available microprocessor (the Intel 4004), with a transistor count of just 2,250 and a clock speed of 740kHz, to modern processors (like the M1 chip) with 16 BILLION transistors running on clock speeds higher than 3GHz
What you will learn:
– The basics of electronics
– Logic Gates
– Negative and Floating Point Numbers, ASCII, UNICODE
– Boolean Arithmetic Using Logic Gates
– Registers and RAM
– Central Processing Unit – CPU
– Arithmetic Logic Unit – ALU
– Instruction Sets
– Advanced CPU Design
– CPU Architectures
– How Programming Languages Were Born
– Assembly Language
– Integrated Circuits
– Operating Systems
It’s going to be a long journey, but an interesting and exciting one.
