Sample text

If numerical quantities need to be conveyed down the two-state signal paths described here, then the only appropriate numbering system is binary, which has only two symbols, 0 and 1. Just as positive or negative logic could be used for the truth of a logical binary signal, it can also be used for a numerical binary signal. Normally, a high voltage level will represent a binary 1 and a low voltage will represent a binary 0, described as a ‘high for a one’ system. Clearly a ‘low for a one’ system is just as feasible.

7. In a practical ADC, each number represents a different analog signal voltage, and the hardware is arranged such that voltages outside the finite range do not overflow but instead result in one or other limit codes being output. This is the equivalent of clipping in analog systems. 5(a) it will be seen that in an eight-bit pure binary system, the number range goes from 00 hex, which represents the smallest voltage and all those voltages below it, through to FF hex, which represents the largest positive voltage and all voltages above it.
