2. 2. Classification of computerClassification of computer Computers can be classified as follows.Computers can be classified as follows. 1.1. According to functionAccording to function 2.2. According to purposeAccording to purpose 3.3. According to capabilitiesAccording to capabilities
3. 3. According to functionAccording to function According to function computers can beAccording to function computers can be classified into four types. Theseclassified into four types. These classification of computer based onclassification of computer based on principle of operation and hardwareprinciple of operation and hardware structure.structure.  Digital ComputerDigital Computer  Analog ComputerAnalog Computer  Hybrid ComputerHybrid Computer
4. 4. Digital ComputerDigital Computer A Digital computer works with data in term ofA Digital computer works with data in term of discrete number or digit. These number arediscrete number or digit. These number are used to perform, arithmetic calculations andused to perform, arithmetic calculations and also make logical decision to reach aalso make logical decision to reach a conclusion depending on the data theyconclusion depending on the data they receive from the user. All the expressionsreceive from the user. All the expressions are coded into binary digits (0 and 1) insideare coded into binary digits (0 and 1) inside the computer and it manipulates them atthe computer and it manipulates them at very fast speed.very fast speed.
