Transcript of Binary Code

Computers are built from collections of
switches which can be either on (1) or off (0).
Decimal numbers are converted into binary
and the computations are done by switches
flipping from off to on or from on to off.
Binary is relating to, using, or expressed in a system of numerical notation that has 2 rather than 10 as a base.
Binary Code
Binary codes are used in computers because they are used to represent information in the digital world.
A system of words, letters, figures, or other symbols substituted for other words, letters, etc., esp. for the purposes of secrecy.

More Information About Binary Codes
Binary codes make the analysis and designing of digital circuits if we use the binary codes.
The modern, or present day binary code was made by Claude Shannon.
Francis Bacon was using a binary code with letters from the alphabet to cipher, so aaab & aabb, etc. are exactly the same as binary.
1001 is the way you say a nine in binary digits. This will slow you down when you are trying to do something fast.
When people are writing binary code they will use OR and AND statements to determine the result
Advantages of a Binary Code
Binary codes are suitable for the computer applications.

Binary codes are suitable for the digital communications.
It is simple to understand without any unclear status. It is a beautiful "language" and it helps to transmit data in a clear state.
Since only 0 & 1 are being used, implementation becomes easy.
