Transcript

  • 1. Biorhythms, computers, music, and…
  • 2. My Biorhythm
  • 3. Definition of a ComputerInformation ProcessorInput and Output
  • 4. Definition of Modern ComputerInputs, outputs, processes and stores informationPhysical: Keyboard, monitor, etc. – are these necessary components?
  • 5. History of Computers - Long, Long Ago beads on rods to count and calculate still widely used in Asia!
  • 6. History of Computers - Way Back When • Slide Rule 1630 • based on Napier’s rules for logarithms • used until 1970s
  • 7. History of Computers - 19th Century first stored program - metal cards first computer manufacturing still in use today!
  • 8. Charles Babbage - 1792-1871Difference Engine c.1822 huge calculator, never finishedAnalytical Engine 1833 could store numbers calculating “mill” used punched metal cards for instructions powered by steam! accurate to six decimal places
  • 9. Vacuum Tubes - 1941 - 1956First Generation Electronic Computers used Vacuum TubesVacuum tubes are glass tubes with circuits inside.Vacuum tubes have no air inside of them, which protects the circuitry.
  • 10. UNIVAC - 1951first fully electronic digital computer built in the U.S.Created at the University of PennsylvaniaENIAC weighed 30 tonscontained 18,000 vacuum tubesCost a paltry $487,000
  • 11. Grace HopperProgrammed UNIVACRecipient of Computer Science’s first “Man of the Year Award”
  • 12. First Computer Bug - 1945 Relay switches part of computers Grace Hopper found a moth stuck in a relay responsible for a malfunction Called it “debugging” a computer
  • 13. First Transistor Uses Silicon developed in 1948 won a Nobel prize on-off switch Second Generation Computers used Transistors, starting in 1956
  • 14. Second Generation – 1965-19631956 – Computers began to incorporate TransistorsReplaced vacuum tubes with Transistors
  • 15. Integrated CircuitsThird Generation Computers used Integrated Circuits (chips).Integrated Circuits are transistors, resistors, and capacitors integrated together into a single “chip”
  • 16. Operating SystemSoftware – Instructions for ComputerOperating system is set of instructions loaded each time a computer is startedProgram is instructions loaded when needed
  • 17. Third Generation – 1964-19711964-1971Integrated CircuitOperating SystemGetting smaller, cheaper
  • 18. The First Microprocessor – 1971The 4004 had 2,250 transistorsfour-bit chunks (four 1’s or 0’s)108KhzCalled “Microchip”
  • 19. What is a Microchip? Very Large Scale Integrated Circuit (VLSIC) Transistors, resistors, and capacitors 4004 had 2,250 transistors Pentium IV has 42 MILLION transistors Each transistor 0.13 microns (10-6 meters)
  • 20. 4th Generation – 1971-presentMICROCHIPS!Getting smaller and smaller, but we are still using microchip technology
  • 21. Birth of Personal Computers - 1975256 byte memory (not Kilobytes or Megabytes)2 MHz Intel 8080 chipsJust a box with flashing lightscost $395 kit, $495 assembled.
  • 22. Generations of Electronic Computers First Second Third Fourth Gen. Generation Gen. Gen. Technology Vacuum Transistors Integrated Microchips Tubes Circuits (millions of (multiple transistors) transistors) Size Filled Whole Filled half a Smaller Tiny - Palm Buildings room Pilot is as powerful as old building sized computer
  • 23. Over the past 50 years, the ElectronicComputer has evolved rapidly. Connections: Which evolved from the other, which was an entirely new creation  vacuum tube  integrated circuit  transistor  microchip
  • 24. Evolution of Electronics Microchip (VLSIC) Integrated Circuit Transistor Vacuum Tube
  • 25. Evolution of Electronics Vacuum Tube – a dinosaur without a modern lineage Transistor  Integrated Circuit  Microchip
  • 26. IBM PC - 1981 IBM-Intel-Microsoft joint venture First wide-selling personal computer used in business 8088 Microchip - 29,000 transistors 4.77 Mhz processing speed 256 K RAM (Random Access Memory) standard One or two floppy disk drives
  • 27. Apple Computers Founded 1977 Apple II released 1977 widely used in schools Macintosh (left) released in 1984, Motorola 68000 Microchip processor first commercial computer with graphical user interface (GUI) and pointing device (mouse)
  • 28. Computers Progress UNIVAC Mits IBM PC Macintosh Pentium (1951-1970) Altair (1981) (1984) IV (1968 vers.) (1975) Circuits Integrated 2 Intel Intel 8088 Motorola Intel P-IV Circuits 8080 Microchip 68000 Microchip Microchip - 29,000 Transistors - 7.5 million transistors RAM 512 K 265 Bytes 256 KB 256 MB Memory Speed 1.3 MHz 2 KHz 4.77 MHz 3200 MHz = 3.2 GHz Storage 100 MB 8” Floppy Floppy Floppy Hard Hard Drive Drive Drive Drives Drive, Floppy, CD-Rom Size Whole Briefcase Briefcase Two Small Room (no monitor) + Monitor shoeboxes Tower (integrated monitor) Cost $1.6 million $750 $1595 ~$4000 $1000 - $2000
  • 29. 1990s: Pentiums and Power MacsEarly 1990s began penetration of computers into every niche: every desk, most homes, etc.Faster, less expensive computers paved way for thisWindows 95 was first decent GUI for “PCs”Macs became more PC compatible - easy file transfersPrices have plummeted $2000 for entry level to $500 $6000 for top of line to $1500
  • 30. 21st Century ComputingGreat increases in speed, storage, and memoryIncreased networking, speed in InternetWidespread use of CD-RWPDAsCell Phone/PDAWIRELESS!!!
  • 31. Evolution of Dr. U’s Computer 1990 2004 FactorSpeed 16 MHz 2 GHz 125xStorage 20 MB 120 GB 6000xMemory 1 MB 1 GB MB 1000xCost $2250 $750 .33x
  • 32. What’s next for computers?Use your imagination to come up with what the next century holds for computers. What can we expect in two years? What can we expect in twenty years?
