  22. 22. Generations of Computer Each generation of computer is characterized by a major technological development that fundamentally changed the way computers operate, resulting in increasingly Technology Based Classification of Computer Systems <ul><li>smaller, </li></ul><ul><li>cheaper, </li></ul><ul><li>more powerful </li></ul><ul><li>more efficient and </li></ul><ul><li>reliable devices. </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>TIME PERIOD : 1940's-1950's </li></ul><ul><li>TECHNOLOGY USED : Vacuum Tubes </li></ul><ul><li>SIZE AND SPEED : Huge, taking up entire </li></ul><ul><li>rooms, Slow speed </li></ul><ul><li>LANGUAGE USED : Machine language </li></ul><ul><li>COST : System and </li></ul><ul><li>working cost very high. </li></ul><ul><li>OTHER FEATURES : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Used a great deal of electricity. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Generated a lot of heat. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Input was based on punched cards and paper tape, and output was displayed on printouts. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>EXAMPLE : UNIVAC and ENIAC </li></ul>Structure of a Vaccum Tube UNIVAC ENIAC FIRST GENERATION
  24. 24. SECOND GENERATION TIME PERIOD : 1950's- 1960's TECHNOLOGY USED : Transistors SIZE AND SPEED : Lesser size and increased speed LANGUAGE USED : Assembly language and languages like COBOL and FORTRAN COST : Cost decreased OTHER FEATURES : More efficient and reliable. Though the transistors still generated a great deal of heat that subjected the computer to damage, it was a vast improvement over the vacuum tube. Second-generation computers still relied on punched cards for input and printouts for output. EXAMPLE : UNIVAC 1108, IBM 1401, CDC 1604 UNIVAC 1108 IBM 1401 TRANSISITORS
  25. 25. THIRD GENERATION TIME PERIOD : late 1960's-1970's TECHNOLOGY USED : Integrated Circuit SIZE AND SPEED : Size Lesser and speed further increased LANGUAGE USED : Operating System was developed. COST : Cost decreased further OTHER FEATURES : Instead of punched cards and printouts, users interacted with third generation computers through keyboards and monitors and interfaced with an operating system , which allowed the device to run many different applications at one time with a central program that monitored the memory. Computers for the first time became accessible to a mass audience because they were smaller and cheaper than their predecessors. EXAMPLE : IBM-360 series, Honeywell Model 316, Honeywell – 6000 series, CDC – 1700. IBM 360/50
  26. 26. FOURTH GENERATION <ul><li>TIME PERIOD : 1970's-today TECHNOLOGY USED : Microprocessor SIZE AND SPEED : Reduced size and tremendous speed LANGUAGE USED : High Level Languages like PASCAL, </li></ul><ul><li>COBOL, C, C++, JAVA COST : Reduced Cost OTHER FEATURES : Microprocessors also moved out of the realm of desktop computers and into many areas of life as more and more everyday products began to use microprocessors. </li></ul><ul><li>As these small computers became more powerful, they could be linked together to form networks, which eventually led to the development of the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>Fourth generation computers also saw the development of GUIs, the mouse and handheld devices. EXAMPLE : Intel 4004, Apple Macintosh </li></ul>The Macintosh 128K , the first Macintosh, was the first commercially successful personal computer to use images, rather than text, to communicate. Intel 4004D microprocessor
  27. 27. FIFTH GENERATION <ul><li>TIME PERIOD : 1990's -today TECHNOLOGY USED : Microprocessor SIZE AND SPEED : Reduced size and tremendous speed LANGUAGE USED : Based on Artificial intelligence COST : Reduced Cost OTHER FEATURES : Fifth generation computing devices, based on artificial intelligence, are still in development, though there are some applications, such as voice recognition, that are being used today. </li></ul><ul><li>The goal of fifth-generation computing is to develop devices that respond to natural language input and are capable of learning and self-organization. EXAMPLE : Parallel Inference Machine Note </li></ul><ul><li>Artificial Intelligence is the branch of computer science concerned with making computers behave like humans. </li></ul><ul><li>Voice Recognition is the field of computer science that deals with designing computer systems that can recognize spoken words. </li></ul>
  28. 28. <ul><li>The current classifications of computers place them into four categories: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Super Computers, </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mainframes, </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Minicomputers, </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Microcomputers (Personal Computers)  </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>Size and Speed Based Classification of Computer Systems
  29. 29. SUPER COMPUTER <ul><li>The fastest type of computer. </li></ul><ul><li>Supercomputers are very expensive and are employed for specialized applications that require immense amounts of mathematical calculations. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, weather forecasting requires a supercomputer. </li></ul><ul><li>Other uses of supercomputers include animated graphics, , nuclear energy research, and petroleum exploration. </li></ul><ul><li>Characteristics </li></ul><ul><li>   </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Powerful </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>    Expensive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>    Dedicated to one purpose - weather, satellites, military </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>    Used by large governments or very large companies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>    Can be used by thousands of people at the same time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>    Very large - fill rooms </li></ul></ul>
  30. 30. Sixteen racks of IBM's Blue Gene/L supercomputer can perform 70.7 trillion calculations per second, making it the fastest machine known so far.
  31. 31. MAINFRAME <ul><li>In the early days of computing, mainframes were huge computers that could fill an entire room or even a whole floor. </li></ul><ul><li>As the size of computers has decreased while the power has increased, the term mainframe has fallen out of use in favor of enterprise server. You'll still hear the term used, particularly in large companies to describe the huge machines processing millions of transactions every day. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Characteristics:  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>     Expensive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>     Powerful and fast </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>     Is not limited to one job </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>     Used by business and small government organizations </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The main difference between a supercomputer and a mainframe is that a supercomputer channels all its power into executing a few programs as fast as possible, whereas a mainframe uses its power to execute many programs simultaneously. </li></ul>
  32. 32. MINICOMPUTER <ul><li>Another term rarely used anymore, minicomputers fall in between microcomputers (PCs) and mainframes (enterprise servers). </li></ul><ul><li>Minicomputers are normally referred to as mid-range servers now. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Characteristics: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>      Smaller than mainframe </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>      Can do several jobs at once </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>      Can be used by many people at one time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>      Used by small companies </li></ul></ul>
  33. 33. PERSONAL COMPUTER <ul><li>The term microcomputer, also known as personal computer (PC), or a computer that depends on a microprocessor. </li></ul><ul><li>A microcomputer contains a central processing unit (CPU) on a microchip (the microprocessor), a memory system (read-only memory and random access memory), placed on a motherboard. </li></ul><ul><li>Example:  desktop, notebook, laptop, handheld devices. </li></ul><ul><li>Charcteristics: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>developed in 1980 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  designed for single user </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  not very powerful or expensive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  found in homes </li></ul></ul>
  34. 34. <ul><li>The current classifications of computers place them into four categories: </li></ul><ul><li>Analog Computer </li></ul><ul><li>Digital Computer </li></ul><ul><li>Hybrid Computers </li></ul>Classification of Computers of On the basis of How It Functions
  35. 35. <ul><li>Operate on continuous data, like measuring temp. changes </li></ul><ul><li>Faster </li></ul><ul><li>Accuracy of an analog computer is restricted to the accuracy with which physical quantities can be sensed and displayed. </li></ul><ul><li>Specific Purpose computers </li></ul>Digital Computers Analog Computers Classification of Computers of On the basis of How It Functions <ul><li>Digital computers work on discrete data. </li></ul><ul><li>digital computer can process data with greater accuracy </li></ul><ul><li>We generally use digital computers for business and scientific data processing. </li></ul>Digital Computers
  36. 36. <ul><li>Hybrid computers are computers that comprise features of analog computers and digital computers . </li></ul><ul><li>The digital component normally serves as the controller and provides logical operations , while the analog component normally serves as a solver of differential equations . </li></ul>Hybrid Computers
  37. 37. General Purpose Computers Special Purpose Computers Purpose Based Classification of Computer Systems <ul><li>The First Real Computers: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1939: Konrad Zuse completed the first programmable, general-purpose digital computer </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Special-purpose computer: Dedicated computers that perform specific tasks </li></ul><ul><li>Controlling the temperature and humidity </li></ul><ul><li>Monitoring your heart rate </li></ul><ul><li>Monitoring your house security system </li></ul>

  41. 41. Language Processors <ul><li>Assembler: This language processor converts the program written in Assembly language into machine language. </li></ul><ul><li>Compiler: This converts HLL program into machine language in one go . After the compiler is not needed. It is removed from the memory.Therefore, better memory utilization . </li></ul><ul><li>Interpreter: This converts HLL program into machine language by converting and executing it line by line . It must be present In memory every time program is executed. Therefore, unnecessary usage of memory . </li></ul>There are three types of Language Processors:
  42. 42. Generations of Computer Languages Low Level Language Fifth Generation Fourth Generation Third Generation (High Level Language) Second Generation (Assembly Language) First Generation (Machine Language)
