This year I’m using the IEEE 1541 binary prefixes. That will made the pysicists happier.
Perform the following operations and express the result as it should be for a course in Computer Organization.
- 8 Gi * 256
- 16 Mi / 64
- log2(16 Gi)
- An 16 GiB memory has a 32-bit word size. How many words are contained in this memory?
- A memory has 8 Mi words. Each word contains 16 bits. How many bytes are contained in this memory?
- If a memory has 256 Gi addresses, how many bits are required to address the memory.
I am trying to avoid the ambiguities of the mean of the word “word.”
