Binary code is a code used in digital computers. It is based on a binary number system. Binary means that there are only two possible states: off and on. They are usually symbolized by 0 and 1. A binary code signal is a series of electric pulses that represent numbers, characters, and operations that we want the computer to perform. There is a device called “a clock” inside the computer. This device senses regular pulses, and components (such as transistors) switch either on or off to pass or block the pulses. Everything you see in your screen comes back to two simple digits: 0 and 1.
