How Computers Work

Between my education in computer engineering and software development, I have a reasonable level of knowledge in computing from the electrical science on up. These are my efforts to make that knowledge more available to anyone interested.

  1. How Computers Work (2016 November 14)

    A general introduction to computing and the topics I intend to cover in more depth in following posts.

  2. Transistors and Logic Gates (2016 November 16)

    An overview of how transistors work and how they can be assembled into Boolean logic elements.

  3. Processors (2016 November 17)

    This is a very long piece which I should probably split apart, that covers the assembly of logic elements into decision evaluators, arithmetic operators, and eventually a primitive processor.

  4. Processors Part II (2016 November 18)

    A continued exploration of computer processors and memory.
