central processing unit cpu
Central Processing UnitCPU
  • Control Unit (CU)
    • "the brain" of the CPU
  • Program Counter (PC)
    • points to the next instruction to be executed
  • Instruction Register (IR)
    • holds the currently executing instruction
  • Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU)
    • carries out all arithmetic and logical ops
  • Accumulator (ACC)
    • holds the results of the operations performed by the ALU
main memory
Main Memory
  • Ordered sequence of cells
  • AKA Random Access Memory (RAM)
  • Directly connected to the CPU
  • All programs must be brought into main memory before execution
  • When power is turned off, everything in main memory is lost
main memory with 100 cells

it s all about data
It’s All About Data
  • Software is data
    • numbers, characters
    • instructions, programs
  • Hardware stores and processes data
    • read, write
    • add, subtract, multiply, divide
analog vs digital
Analog vs. Digital
  • Analog
    • continuous wave forms
    • ex: sound, music on an audio tape
  • Digital
    • the information is broken down into pieces, and each piece is represented separately
    • represented as series of 0 and 1
      • 0 - low voltage
      • 1 - high voltage
    • can be copied exactly
    • ex: music on a compact disc
representing text digitally
Representing Text Digitally
  • All information in a computer is digitized, broken down and represented as numbers.

language of a computer
Language of a Computer
  • Machine language: the most basic language of a computer
  • A sequence of 0s and 1s
    • binary digit, or bit
    • sequence of 8 bits is called a byte
  • Every computer directly understands its own machine language

Bit Permutations
  • Each permutation can represent a particular item
  • There are 2N permutations of N bits
    • N bits are needed to represent 2N unique items

21 = 2 items

22 = 4 items

23 = 8 items

24 = 16 items

25 = 32 items

binary numbers
Binary Numbers
  • N bits to represent 2N values
  • N bits represent values 0 to 2N-1
  • Example: 5 bits
    • 32 unique values (0-31)
    • 00000 = 0
    • 11111 = 31

programming languages evolution
Programming LanguagesEvolution
  • Early computers programmed in machine language (only 0s and 1s)
  • Assembly languages were developed to make programmer’s job easier
  • Assembler: translates assembly language instructions into machine language
programming languages evolution35
Programming LanguagesEvolution
  • High-level languagesmake programming easier
  • Closer to spoken languages
  • Examples:
    • Basic
    • FORTRAN
    • COBOL
    • C/C++
    • Java
from java to machine language
From Java to Machine Language
  • Computers understand only 0 and 1 (machine language)
  • Compiler translates source code into machine code
  • Java compiler translates source code (file ending in .java) into bytecode (file ending in .class)
    • bytecode is portable (not machine-specific)
  • Java interpreter reads and executes bytecode
    • different Java interpreters for different types of CPUs and operating systems (OS)
      • Intel/Windows, Motorola/Mac OS X, Intel/Linux
problem solving
Problem Solving
  • The purpose of writing a program is to solve a problem
  • The general steps in problem solving are:
    • understand the problem
    • dissect the problem into manageable pieces
    • design a solution
    • consider alternatives to the solution and refine it
    • implement the solution
    • test the solution and fix any problems that exist
algorithm
Algorithm
  • Sequence of instructions used to carry out a task or solve a problem
  • May be written in either English or pseudocode
    • outline of a program that could be translated into actual code
  • May need refinement as you work

Always write out your algorithm before you begin programming

algorithm design example
Algorithm Design Example

Problem: Convert change in cents to number of half-dollars, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies to be returned.

Example:

  • given 646 cents
  • number of half-dollars: divide 646 by 50
    • quotient is 12 (number of half-dollars)
    • remainder is 46 (change left over)
  • number of quarters: divide 46 by 25
    • quotient is 1 (number of quarters)
    • remainder is 21 (change left over)
  • number of dimes, nickels, pennies
  • result: 12 half-dollars, 1 quarter, 2 dimes, 0 nickels, 1 penny
resulting algorithm
Resulting Algorithm
  • Get the change in cents
  • Find the number of half-dollars
  • Calculate the remaining change
  • Find the number of quarters
  • Calculate the remaining change
  • Find the number of dimes
  • Calculate the remaining change
  • Find the number of nickels
  • Calculate the remaining change
  • The remaining change is the number of pennies.
