What is the difference between binary and BCD code?

In BCD each digit of a decimal number is coded as a separate 4 bit binary number between 0 and 9.For example:Decimal 12 in BCD is shown as 0001 0010 (Binary 1 and Binary 2), in Binary it is 1100.

What is a 4 BCD code?

A 4 BCD code is a 4 decimal-digit BCD code, thus a 16 digit binary-code. You take the decimal number 3545. It's BCD code is 0011 0101 0100 0101 where every 4 bits represent a decimal digit.

10 in BCD code is representd as?

The decimal number 10, represented in BCD is 0001 0000. If, instead, you mean that you have 10 in BCD and want to know what that means, that is equivalent to 0000 0010 and would be 2 in decimal.

Why can't 1111 be used in a BCD number?

1111 can't be used for Binary Coded Decimal (BCD) because 1111=15 which is made of 2 digits 1 and 5. In BCD a 4-digit binary number is used for every decimal digit. ex. 1111 is incorrect 1 = 0001 5 = 0101 Answer: 0001 0101

What is the use of 7448 IC?

The 7448 integrated circuit is a BCD to 7-segment display decoder. In other words a BCD, or binary coded decimal (such as 0101), is sent to the IC via 4 input ports. The IC then translates this into another value, which is then sent to a 7-segment number display which then displays the decimal value of the BCD. If you sent the BCD 1001 to the IC, it would then send out a signal to the 7-segment display which would then show the number 9, which is the decimal value of 1001.
