How Computers Work: Processor and Main Memory
Roger YoungISBN: 1403325820;
The book is as simple as possible and aimed at a non-technical audience with absolutely no knowledge of computers or electronics, but it is an electrical engineering text. A typical page consists of a circuit diagram (or program) and a paragraph or two of explanation. The book begins with a VERY simple circuit and continues to a very complex circuit (a computer) while explaining everything. Everything has been made as simple as possible while leaving nothing out. Eighty-four circuit diagrams and sometiming diagrams and short programs make every point clear. Computers are the most complex machines that have ever been created. This is the first book to make it possible for ordinary people to understand precisely how the processor, the main and most complex part of a computer, works. In fact, it completely explains the operation of a complete, though simple, computer. Relays, which are explained, are used in the circuitry instead of transistors for simplicity, though...
