Abstract

As we have Intimated, semiconductor memory devices store data as groups of binary digits, or bits. The microprocessor interprets and processes this data using binary arithmetic. Accordingly, to program your Mk14 in its machine code you must understand the binary and hexadecimal number systems fully — and this implies a far greater fluency then the mere realisation that decimal 9 is binary 1øø1.
