Transcript

  • 1. BLOCK DIAGRAM OF A COMPUTER
  • 2. BLOCK DIAGRAM OF COMPUTER
  • 3. INPUT UNIT Computer receives data andinstructions through theInput Unit. The input unit consists of oneor more input devices.Input devices include: Keyboard Mouse Joystick Scanner
  • 4. FUNCTIONS OF INPUT UNIT Accept the data and instructions from the outside world. Convert it to a form that the computer can understand. Supply the converted data to the computer system for further processing.
  • 5. OUTPUT UNIT Computer provides information and results of computation to the outside world through the Output Unit The output unit consists of one or more output devices. Output devices include: Monitors Printers Speakers
  • 6. FUNCTIONS OF OUTPUT UNIT Accept the results produced by the computer. (These are in a coded form.) Convert it to a form that the outside world can understand. (OR, Converts it into human readable form.) Supply the converted results to the outside world.
  • 7. CENTRAL PROCESSING UNIT It is the brain of the computer. The ALU and the Control Unit (CU) of a computer system are jointly known as the central processing unit. CPU performs actual processing of data, according to instructions from programs.
  • 8. FUNCTIONS OF CPU It performs all calculations. It takes all decisions. It controls all units of the computer.
  • 9. CONTROL UNIT It controls all other units in the computer. It is the central nervous system of the computer that controls and synchronizes its working. FUNCTIONS OF CONTROL UNIT It instructs the input unit, where to store the data after receiving it from the user. It controls the flow of data and instructions from the storage unit to ALU.
  • 10. ARITHMETIC LOGIC UNIT All calculations are performed in the Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) of the computer. FUNCTIONS OF ALU It performs all arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). It performs all logic operations. It does comparison and takes decision.
  • 11. STORAGE UNIT The storage unit of the computer holds data and instructions that are entered through the input unit, before they are processed. Storage devices are divided into two categories: Primary Memory or Main Memory Secondary Memory
  • 12. FUNCTIONS OF STORAGE UNIT It received the data and instructions required for processing from the input unit. It stores the intermediate results.• It stores the final results before these results are released to the output unit. It saves data for later use.
  • 13. THANK YOU
