computers

  1. 1. Asearly as the seventeenth century, mathematicians were trying to create a machine that could perform basic mathematical functions such as, addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
  2. 2. 1804 British inventor, Charles Babbage, designed an all-purpose problem-solving machine, the difference engine, which had a mechanical memory to store the results of calculations.
  3. 3. Generation of Computer First Generation 1940-1956: Vacuum Tubes The first computers used vacuum tubes for circuitry and magnetic drums for memory, and were often enormous, taking up entire rooms. The UNIVAC and ENIAC computers are first-generation computing devices.
  4. 4. Second Generation - 1956-1963: Transistors Transistors replaced vacuum tubes and ushered in the sec ond generation of computers. The transistor was invented i n 1947 but did not see wide spread use in computers until the late 50s. *smaller,faster and cheaper.
  5. 5. Third Generation - 1964-1971: Integrated CircuitsThe development of the integrated circuit was the hallmark of the third generation of computers. Transistors were miniaturized and placed on silicon chips, called semiconductors, which drastically increased the speed and efficiency of computers. First Integrated Circuit
  6. 6. Fourth Generation - 1971-Present: MicroprocessorsThe microprocessor brought the fourth generation of computers, as thousands of integrated circuits were built onto a single silicon chip.
  7. 7. Fifth Generation of Computer 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.
