Getting an ascii value from a byte

i want to be able to get the correct ascii value from a byte without
having to use the Convert.ToChar function as a char takes up two bytes
of space and it is affecting the performance of my program. I know that
for example the char value 'R' is '82' in byte form. What i want is to
be able to translate byte numbers to their ascii equivalent quickly and
easily(e.g."54 is 6 in ascii code") with as little processing as
possible......
