ASCII Code
ASCII CodeWe do not only process numbers in digital systems. For some applications, we may need to handle characters and symbols as well. We know that everything in a digital system is represented in binary form. Therefore, characters and symbols should also be represented as such. One way of representing characters and symbols in binary form is using the ASCII code. ASCII stands for the American Standard Code for Information Interchange. The ASCII code for characters and symbols are given in Table 6.6. In this table, LSB stands for least significant byte and MSB stands for most significant byte. To represent a specific character (or symbol), its corresponding code should be given. Let's assume that we would like to represent t…
