  • 1. Computer’s Evolution By Bobby King and Michael McWilliams
  • 2. Early Computer’s • Z1 created by Konrad Zuse of Germany – Considered to be the first programmable computer. – 1936 – 64 word memory – To program a person would use punch tape and received information also with punch tape. – People disagree that this is the real first computer.
  • 3. The Change in Size • Computer use to take up a whole room and now they can fit in a pocket • This is dew to technology advances human preference.
  • 4. Input • Keyboard, Mouse, memory card • Early Input was mostly Punch Card
  • 5. Functions and Programming •Simple to Complex •Machine Code to Object oriented Language •Used the same base language of Binary
  • 6. Output • Used to get information out of the computer • Monitors were used to display graphics and to allow easier programming. • Printer, Speaker, and so on
  • 7. Deep Blue • Garry Kasparo vs. a computer know as Deep Blue • Garry Kasparo won the first match • 6 games were played in a rematch and Deep Blue won 2 to 1 • 3 ties • Shows how far we have come for programming and interaction with machines
  • 8. Mobile PC/Computers • Implies wireless transmission using computing device while in transit. • Laptops, net books, tablets and mobile phones • Droid and Osi
  • 9. Memory • Drum Memory – Uses as a Drum as how the early phonograph used the wax cylinder record • Magnetic core Memory – stored memory by magnetic polarity. • Semi-conductor memory- stored memory on an integrated chip . Developed into R.A.M.
  • 10. Product Life Cycle (June 2002 issue of PC Update) Materials RefinedMaterials Extracted Parts Constructed Parts Assembled
  • 11. Material • Silicon • Copper • Plastic • There are also other materials like gold used in very small quantities
  • 12.

  • 13. First Generation • “Use of vacuum tubes • Big & Clumsy • High Electricity Consumption • Programming in Mechanical Language • Larger AC were needed • Lot of electricity failure occurred ” (Computer : the technology next, the future......)
  • 14. Second Generation • “Transistors were used • Core Memory was developed • Faster than First Generation computers • First Operating System was developed • Programming was in Machine Language & Assembly Language • Magnetic tapes and discs were used • Computers became smaller in size than the First Generation computers • Computers consumed less heat and consumed less electricity” (Computer : the technology next, the future......)
  • 15. Third Generation • “Integrated circuits developed • Power consumption was low • SSI & MSI Technology was used • High level languages were used” (Computer : the technology next, the future......)
  • 16. Forth Generation • “LSI & VLSI Technology used • Development of Portable Computers • RAID Technology of data storage • Used in virtual reality, multimedia, simulation • Computers started in use for Data Communication • Different types of memories with very high accessing speed & storage capacity” (Computer : the technology next, the future......)
  • 17. Fifth Generation • “Used in parallel processing • Used superconductors • Used in speech recognition • Used in intelligent robots • Used in artificial intelligence” (Computer : the technology next, the future......)
