  1. 1. The Evolution Of Digital Computers<br />By : Lee Hampson &<br />Nymoen Mendoza<br />
  2. 2. What are Digital Computers<br /> The Early Years of Digital Computers<br /> Digital Computers for the 21st Century<br /> Current Digital Computer Technology<br />The Future of Digital Computers<br />Conclusion<br />References <br />Any Questions?? <br />Table Of Context<br />
  3. 3. What are Digital Computers?<br /><ul><li>A computer is a machine that manipulates data according to a set of instructions.</li></ul>-Calculators, computer workstations, data-processing systems, microcomputers.<br />
  4. 4. The Early Years of Digital Computers <br />First Generation (1939-1954) - vacuum tube<br />1937 - John V. Atanasoff designed the first digital electronic computer<br />1946 - Mauchly and Eckert start Electronic Control Co., received grant from National Bureau of Standards to build a ENIAC-type computer with magnetic tape input/output, renamed UNIVAC in 1947 but run out of money, formed in Dec. 1947 the new company Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation (EMCC).<br />
  5. 5.  <br />Throughout the early years, digital computers were big and was very expensive. Nowadays, a digital computer processor can be held in the palm of your hand. Also, back in the days, digital computers can cost up to $500,000. Now, digital computers are less than 1000 dollars.<br />Digital computers in the 21st century<br />
  6. 6. Current Digital Computer Technology<br />
  7. 7. Japanese researchers are attempting to create a computer that requires no mouse or keypad<br />This computer will be run on human brain waves so everyone will be customized to the individual person<br />This technology will be very helpful for reasons such as; criminology, business, security, transportation, telecommunication, intelligence and espionage<br />The United Kingdom is also in the process of developing a computer that would be able to calculate 63 million times a second which is equals about 12000 desktops <br />The Future of Digital Computers<br />
  8. 8. In conclusion, digital computers have made its way to modern technology throughout the years. This presentation is to acknowledge the power of today’s technology. Starting from being big as vacuum tubes funded by the air force down to hand held computers that could fit in anyone’s pocket. Having big companies such as Microsoft, Apple and automobile companies working on new inventions and projects, our future is looking brighter.<br />Conclusion<br />
