I want to know how software is converted into electrical pulses or `0`'s and `1`'s in computer. How does the computer do it? I know that `0` and `1` in binary system actually represent `off` and `on` states respectively and the computer stores the data in its memory in the same state. Also I want to know how the computer(more specifically the video controller) converts the binaries i.e `0` and `1` or low voltage and high voltage into a form that can be displayed on the monitor or is this the work of the monitor. And at last, what do …

Before looking at the code, here's an explanation: NIDAQmx is a hardware-in-the-loop integration software from National Instruments. They give this sample code to create any voltage out of the card. The variable "float64 data[1]" is a double precision floating point that defines the actual voltage being emitted from the card; it is referenced later in the fourth line with function "DAQmxErrChk". However, despite my best efforts, I cannot seem to [B]change[/B] that voltage. This is because it is in curly braces, which is a permanent array initialization. But, when I take the curly braces off or try to define data …

Hi all, I have just modified a mouse so that the left mouse button gets activated when a puck hits the net in ice hockey... Now all I need is for python to react to the hit by sending an output of voltage for a period of time and adding the hit to a list. I've sorted out the database and circuits, now all I need is some help with the following: Having the LMB click registered Having output voltage for (eg) 3 seconds What module would be the best for this, I was thinking of pyparalell but my laptop …

My CPU is designed for 1333 RAM, but I bought [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231303&cm_re=ripjaws_1600-_-20-231-303-_-Product]1600 G.Skill RAM[/url] as [url=http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/289979-31-seeking-opinion-gaming-build#t2146310]recommended by banthracis[/url] on Tom's Hardware. I have a Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 mother board which has these [url=http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3423#sp]RAM specifications[/url]: 4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 16 GB of system memory Dual channel memory architecture Support for DDR3 1866(OC)/1333/1066 MHz memory modules ([url=http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=GA-870A-UD3]Another source for supported RAM[/url].) I set my RAM to 7-8-7-24-2T. I changed the voltage to 1.64v and set the clock to 1333. It's set to unganged. (The bios recommends not going above 1.64v, but the memory is meant to run at 1.65. …

Hi all, I was just wondering if it is possible to use python to send pulses of 5 v (default) through the parallel port. I have made up a circuit board to interpret the pulses, yet this isn't helpful since there are no pulses to receive. Here's some specs( maybe it will effect the code) Output needed- 5 v ( pins 2,3,4) - any voltage (pins 6,7,8) Thanks in advance Python01
