Introduction to Computer
An electronic device
- receives information (data)
- performs a sequence of operations
(calculations)
- as per the set of procedural instructions
(programs)
- produces result (reports)
Types of Computers
• Microcomputers (personal computers) single
chip microprocessors
• Desktop computers - A case and a display put on
a desk.
• Laptops and notebook computers – Portable and
all in two foldable cases.
• Tablet computer – Portable and all in one case.
• Smartphones – Small handheld computers with
limited hardware.
Servers
• usually refers to a computer that is dedicated
to provide a service
• For example, a computer dedicated to
a database may be called a "database server".
• "File servers" manage a large collection
of computer files.
• "Web servers" process web pages and web
applications.
Workstations
• A workstation is a special computer designed
for technical or scientific applications.
• Primarily used by one person at a time.
• They are connected to a local area network
and run multi-user operating systems.
Minicomputers
• Minicomputers are a class of multi-user
computers that lie in the middle range of the
computing spectrum, in between the smallest
mainframe computers and the largest single-
user systems (microcomputers or personal
computers).
Mainframe
• The term mainframe computer was created to
distinguish the traditional, large, institutional
computer intended to service multiple users
from the smaller, single user machines. They
are measured in MIPS (million instructions per
second) and respond to up to 100s of millions
of users at a time.
Supercomputers
• A Supercomputer is focused on performing
tasks involving intense numerical calculations
such as weather forecasting, fluid dynamics,
nuclear simulations, theoretical astrophysics,
and complex scientific computations.
Supercomputer processing speeds are
measured in floating point operations per
second, or FLOPS.

mouse, left, right click, scroll
Monitors
• CRT (Cathode Ray Tube), TFT, LCD (iquid crystal display), LED (Light
Emitting Diode), OLED (Organic LED), Plasma.
• Screen Size (13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 27 and 32 inches),
• Viewing Angle (The viewing angle indicates at what angle the monitor can
be viewed vertically and horizontally and still be seen.),
• Contrast Ratio (The contrast ratio determines how rich colors will appear
on-screen, the higher the ratio the better. Contrast ratios range from 200:1
up to 1000:1),
• Resolution and Refresh Rates The resolution is the number of dots
displayed on the entire screen. The higher the resolution the smaller
everything on the screen will be. This can be a benefit for running multiple
applications at the same time but can also be a burden for someone with
poor eyesight. Common resolution supports include 640 * 480, 800 * 600
and 1,024*768 and so forth. The refresh rate of a monitor is the frequency
at which the screen is redrawn. The higher the number the more often the
screen is redrawn and the less flicker will occur. Common Refresh rate are
60 to 80Hertz.
Printers-Speakers
• Printers: Dot matrix (80/132 cloumn), Inkjet,
Laserjet, A8(Business card-2.07”x2.91”)

Black & White, Colour.
• Speakers – Mono, Stereo, Home Theatre, 2.1,
5.1, 7.1, SubWoofer, Wireless, Bluetooth.
Software
• System Software: Dedicated to managing the
computer itself, such as the operating system, file
management utilities, and disk operating
system. The computer programs used to start
and run computer systems.
• Application Software: Specific purpose programs
word processing, web browsers, accounting,
truck scheduling, Astrology, Music Player, Movie
Player, Video Games, etc.
Programming Languages
• Language (High / Low Level ) is set of instructions
to perform specific task.
• High level languages use common simple English
words for instructions. No need of detailed
information about computer hardware. Example:
C, C++, Java, etc.
• Low level languages use specific symbols for
instructions. Detailed information is required
about computer hardware. Example: Assembly
Language.
Compiler-Interpreter
• Compiler: is a computer program (or a set of
programs) that transforms source code (Program)
written in a programming language (the source
language) into another computer language /
object code (binary language).
• Interpreter: is a computer program that directly
executes, i.e. performs, instructions written in a
programming or scripting language, without
previously compiling them into a machine
language program.
Booting
• is the initialization of a computerized system.
• The booting process can be "hard", after electrical power to the
CPU is switched from off to on (in order to diagnose particular
hardware errors),
• or "soft", when those power-on self-tests (POST) can be avoided.
• A boot loader is a computer program that loads an operating
system or some other system software for the computer after
completion of the power-on self-tests;
• it is the loader for the operating system itself. Within the hard
reboot process, it runs after completion of the self-tests, then loads
and runs the software.
• A boot loader is loaded into main memory from persistent memory,
such as a hard disk drive.
Disk Partitions- File System
• Partitioning is typically the first step of preparing a newly
manufactured disk, before any files or directories have been
created.
• The disk stores the information about the partitions' locations and
sizes in an area known as the partition table that the operating
system reads before any other part of the disk.
• Each partition then appears in the operating system as a distinct
"logical" disk that uses part of the actual disk. System
administrators use a program called a partition editor to create,
resize, delete, and manipulate the partitions.
• In windows, Go to Control Panel, Disk Management for managing
partitions.
Multimedia
• is content that uses a combination of different content forms such
as text, audio, images, animation, video and interactive content.
• Graphics are visual images or designs on some surface, such as a
wall, canvas, screen, paper, or stone to inform, illustrate, or
entertain.
• In contemporary usage it includes: pictorial representation of data,
as in computer-aided design and manufacture, in typesetting and
the graphic arts, and in educational and recreational software.
• Images that are generated by a computer are called computer
graphics. Applications: cinema presentation, video game, simulator,
etc.
• Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and
change by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images
that minimally differ from each other. Images are displayed in a
rapid succession, usually 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second.
Number System
• Decimal number system – 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,
8, 9, …
• Binary number system – 0 and 1
Decimal to Binary Conversion
• Step 1 − Divide the decimal number to be
converted by 2 (the value of the new base).
• Step 2 − Get the remainder from Step 1 as the
rightmost digit (least significant digit) of new base
number.
• Step 3 − Divide the quotient of the previous
divide by 2 (the new base).
• Step 4 − Record the remainder from Step 3 as the
next digit (to the left) of the new base number.
Example
Steps Operations Results Remainder
Step 1 29 / 2 14 1
Step 2 14 / 2 7 0
Step 3 7 / 2 3 1
Step 4 3 / 2 1 1
Step 5 1 / 2 0 1
Example continues …
• As mentioned in Steps 2 and 4, the
remainders have to be arranged in the reverse
order so that the first remainder becomes the
Least Significant Digit (LSD) and the last
remainder becomes the Most Significant Digit
(MSD).
• Decimal Number − 2910 = Binary Number −
111012.
Binary to Decimal Conversion
• Step 1 − Determine the column (positional)
value of each digit (this depends on the
position of the digit and the base of the
number system).
• Step 2 − Multiply the obtained column values
(in Step 1) by the digits in the corresponding
columns.
• Step 3 − Sum the products calculated in Step
2. The total is the equivalent value in decimal.
Example
Steps Binary Number Decimal Number
Step 1
111012 ((1 × 24) + (1 × 23) + (1 ×
22) + (0 × 21) + (1 × 20))10
Step 2
111012 (16 + 8 + 4 + 0 + 1)10
Step 3
111012 2910
Binary Number − 111012 = Decimal Number − 2910
ASCII
ASCII stands for American Standard Code for
Information Interchange. Computers can only
understand numbers, so an ASCII code is the
numerical representation of a character such as 'a'
or '@' or an action of some sort. 0-31 Control keys,
32-47 special characters, 48-57 numbers, 58-64
special characters, 65-90 capital letters, 91-96
special characters, 97-122 small letter, 123-127
special characters, 128-255 extended ASCII codes. If
a key is pressed respective ASCII code is identified
and converted to binary.
Unicode
• Unicode is a computing industry standard for
the consistent encoding, representation, and
handling of text expressed in most of the
world's writing systems.
• Character Decimal Hex Name

Contrast ratios range from 200:1 up to 1000:1), • Resolution and Refresh Rates The resolution is the number of dots displayed on the entire screen. The higher the resolution the smaller everything on the screen will be. This can be a benefit for running multiple applications at the same time but can also be a burden for someone with poor eyesight. Common resolution supports include 640 * 480, 800 * 600 and 1,024*768 and so forth. The refresh rate of a monitor is the frequency at which the screen is redrawn. The higher the number the more often the screen is redrawn and the less flicker will occur. Common Refresh rate are 60 to 80Hertz.

  • 26. Programming Languages • Language (High / Low Level ) is set of instructions to perform specific task. • High level languages use common simple English words for instructions. No need of detailed information about computer hardware. Example: C, C++, Java, etc. • Low level languages use specific symbols for instructions. Detailed information is required about computer hardware. Example: Assembly Language.
  • 27. Compiler-Interpreter • Compiler: is a computer program (or a set of programs) that transforms source code (Program) written in a programming language (the source language) into another computer language / object code (binary language). • Interpreter: is a computer program that directly executes, i.e. performs, instructions written in a programming or scripting language, without previously compiling them into a machine language program.
  • 28. Booting • is the initialization of a computerized system. • The booting process can be "hard", after electrical power to the CPU is switched from off to on (in order to diagnose particular hardware errors), • or "soft", when those power-on self-tests (POST) can be avoided. • A boot loader is a computer program that loads an operating system or some other system software for the computer after completion of the power-on self-tests; • it is the loader for the operating system itself. Within the hard reboot process, it runs after completion of the self-tests, then loads and runs the software. • A boot loader is loaded into main memory from persistent memory, such as a hard disk drive.
  • 29. Disk Partitions- File System • Partitioning is typically the first step of preparing a newly manufactured disk, before any files or directories have been created. • The disk stores the information about the partitions' locations and sizes in an area known as the partition table that the operating system reads before any other part of the disk. • Each partition then appears in the operating system as a distinct "logical" disk that uses part of the actual disk. System administrators use a program called a partition editor to create, resize, delete, and manipulate the partitions. • In windows, Go to Control Panel, Disk Management for managing partitions.

  • 31. Multimedia • is content that uses a combination of different content forms such as text, audio, images, animation, video and interactive content. • Graphics are visual images or designs on some surface, such as a wall, canvas, screen, paper, or stone to inform, illustrate, or entertain. • In contemporary usage it includes: pictorial representation of data, as in computer-aided design and manufacture, in typesetting and the graphic arts, and in educational and recreational software. • Images that are generated by a computer are called computer graphics. Applications: cinema presentation, video game, simulator, etc. • Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and change by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. Images are displayed in a rapid succession, usually 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second.

  • 33. Decimal to Binary Conversion • Step 1 − Divide the decimal number to be converted by 2 (the value of the new base). • Step 2 − Get the remainder from Step 1 as the rightmost digit (least significant digit) of new base number. • Step 3 − Divide the quotient of the previous divide by 2 (the new base). • Step 4 − Record the remainder from Step 3 as the next digit (to the left) of the new base number.
  • 34. Example Steps Operations Results Remainder Step 1 29 / 2 14 1 Step 2 14 / 2 7 0 Step 3 7 / 2 3 1 Step 4 3 / 2 1 1 Step 5 1 / 2 0 1
  • 35. Example continues … • As mentioned in Steps 2 and 4, the remainders have to be arranged in the reverse order so that the first remainder becomes the Least Significant Digit (LSD) and the last remainder becomes the Most Significant Digit (MSD). • Decimal Number − 2910 = Binary Number − 111012.
  • 36. Binary to Decimal Conversion • Step 1 − Determine the column (positional) value of each digit (this depends on the position of the digit and the base of the number system). • Step 2 − Multiply the obtained column values (in Step 1) by the digits in the corresponding columns. • Step 3 − Sum the products calculated in Step 2. The total is the equivalent value in decimal.
