Digital World Chapter 2

– Since digital values deal with distinct numbers, they will always round to the nearest number regardless of the fractional sections that the device detects

– Colors of pixels are usually made up of tiny red, blue, and green lights that can be seen microscopically with any device that contains colored light

– The 2 types of sound conversions: Analog-to-Digital (A/D) or Digital-To-Analog (D/A) both interpret waveforms from sound to numbers

~ With the brightness colors and levels in display, you can analyze the amount of pixels the digital form contains. If the device contains 2000-3000 pixels, it usually fits into the standard size of a small digital camera as the pixels are converted into 6 million picture elements or 6 megapixels. The amount of pixels can usually detect how powerful the brightness of a device can really be.

1. RAM stores information that is processed by the computer that is active by the processor but can be modified by the CPU
– Disk space is about 100 times cheaper per byte than RAM but accessing information is slower due to the capacity of memory it can contain
– Logic gates are created on IC circuits (Integrated circuits) often called chips or microchips

2. RAM has 2 different types of secondary storage, the magnetic disk aka hand disk or hard drive and flash memory which can also be called solid state disk. Both of these can store way more information than the RAM.
