Hardware, Embedded Systems "In this article, I show at the transistor and silicon level. I've discussed the mathematics of the 6502 overflow flag earlier and thought it would be interesting to look at the actual chip-level implementation. Even though the overflow flag is a slightly obscure feature, its circuit is simple enough that it can be explained at the silicon level."

I hope so, but during my life I have encountered a number of IT people that were seriously lacking any knowledge beyond their own speciality.

Most don't even know what a nibble is!

It's a sign of the times I guess. Many financial experts use cheap calculators and have no clue how my HP-12C works, nor had they ever heard of it. I have the HP-16C too, to get back to binairy.
