Binary Converter

Binary: 2
   
Decimal: 10
Hexadecimal: 16
Octal: 8
ASCII / Unicode text:  

It is a multipurpose calculator that is used to convert Binary values to Decimal, Hexadecimal, Octal and ASCII/ Unicode text. It has a single text field where you need to enter the binary code number. It has two active controls that perform different functions of the calculator.

The ‘Convert' button is used to initiate the calculation and the results will be displayed below the two controls. The ‘Reset' button is used to erase all the previous conversion data from the calculator with a single click. It is a number conversion calculator that gives accurate results depending on the input.

For example;

If the binary code number is 01001001, find the Decimal, Hexadecimal, Octal and ASCII/ Unicode text.

Solution;

Enter the binary code in the blank text field and then click ‘Convert'. The results will be displayed as;

Decimal: 73 (10)

Hexadecimal: 49 (16)

Octal:  111 (8)

ASCII/Unicode text: I

The binary is a numerical system that operates virtually similar to the decimal systems most people are familiar with. The binary system uses 2 as its base while the decimal number system uses the number 10. The binary system only uses 0 and 1 as the primary digits.

On the contrary, the decimal system will use the digits from 0 through 9. The same rules in the decimal system are applicable in these conversions when computing operation such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and addition.

The implementation of the binary system is prominent in the digital circuitry using the logic gates and thus incorporated by most modern technology and computers.  A hardware that only needs two states can be easily designed using the system such as on and off or (present/absent, true/false, etc.).

The binary converter can only execute a single conversion at a time. If you want to perform new calculations, you can always use the ‘Reset' button to readjust the calculator.
