How does a microchip store binary code from a ASCII text character?


New Member

I was just wondering how a microchip stores data from a ASCII text character? I know that a text character is stored as a byte. For example 0 would be stored as a 00110000 byte. But how does the microchip store each individual bit in the 00110000 byte? Does a microchip store each bit in the 00110000 byte right next to each other on the microchip or does the 00110000 byte gets stored in some other pattern on the microchip? Thanks for the help!
