  2. 2. Information Technology <ul><li>MacMillian Dictionary of Information Technology defines IT as “the acquisition, processing, storage and dissemination of vocal, pictorial, textual and numerical information by a micro-electronics-based combination of computing and telecommunications. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Components of IT <ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Computer Technology: Hardware and Software. </li></ul><ul><li>Communication Technology: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Transmission media </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Switching techniques </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. The Impact of IT on Society <ul><li>Technological research and development introduces new products and services to society, some capable of affecting the way almost all of us lead our lives. Many innovations come about as a response to society's changing needs. But technologies also have the power to shape the values held by a society – </li></ul><ul><li>Various elements that makeup society, whether they be individuals or organisations </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Impact has been fourfold: </li></ul><ul><li>storage, </li></ul><ul><li>manipulation, </li></ul><ul><li>distribution, </li></ul><ul><li>creation. </li></ul><ul><li>Society expects to be able to store more than was previously conceived. </li></ul><ul><li>Society expects to be able to manipulate the information they have for their benefit, to increase understanding and discover new relationships. </li></ul><ul><li>Society expects to be able to distribute information quickly, efficiently and cheaply. </li></ul><ul><li>Society now expects the creation of new information to be facilitated by these new technologies. </li></ul>
  6. 6. PC Architecture <ul><li>Input/Output Unit; </li></ul><ul><li>Central Processing Unit; </li></ul><ul><li>Memory Unit; and </li></ul><ul><li>Logic Gates/Circuits. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Input Devices <ul><li>Keyboard </li></ul><ul><li>Mouse </li></ul><ul><li>Trackball </li></ul><ul><li>Joystick </li></ul><ul><li>Light Pen </li></ul><ul><li>Scanner </li></ul>Output Devices <ul><li>Monitor </li></ul><ul><li>Printer </li></ul><ul><li>Plotter </li></ul>
  8. 8. Central Processing Unit (CPU) <ul><li>1. Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) </li></ul><ul><li>2. Control Unit (CU) </li></ul><ul><li>3. Registers </li></ul><ul><li>4. Buses </li></ul><ul><li>5. Clock </li></ul>
  9. 9. Memory Unit <ul><li>Read Only Memory (ROM pronounced as &quot;Ra-om&quot;) </li></ul><ul><li>Random Access Memory (RAM pronounced as &quot;R-aem&quot;) </li></ul><ul><li>Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor Memory (CMOS) </li></ul>
  10. 10. ROM <ul><li>(i) Mask ROM: </li></ul><ul><li>(ii) PROM </li></ul><ul><li>(iii) EPROM </li></ul><ul><li>(iv) EEPROM: </li></ul><ul><li>(v) EAPROM </li></ul>
  11. 11. RAM <ul><li>Dynamic RAM (DRAM) </li></ul><ul><li>Static RAM (SRAM) </li></ul>Dynamic Ram Static Ram It is capacitors based which go ON and OFF continuously which is reason why cells lose their charge. It is switch based. So the cell do not lose the charge till switch is ON. As cells losc the charge, they have to be continuously refreshed to keep the data in the memory locations. No need of refreshment as data remain till computer is on. Needs continuous power although less power in consumed. Needs more amount of power although not continuous. Slower Faster Cheaper Expensive High density Low density.
  12. 12. RAM ROM It is used to store data, instructions & results. The time taken to provide access to any location either for storing / retrieving data is sameor uniform. That is why it is called as a random access device. It contains a pre-written set of instructions provided by the manufacturer for the basic functioning of the computer, e.g. booting instructions. RAM is temporary / volatile in nature since the contents of RAM are lost, the moment the power is lost. ROM is permanent in nature since the contents of ROM are not lost, even when the power is lost&quot;i.e. it is non-volatile. The user can read from & write into the memory of the computer. The user can only read. He cannot make any changes. It has larger memory capacity as compared to ROM. It has very small capacity memory as compared to RAM. The processing speed can be increased by expanding the RAM capacity. ROM cannot be expanded / erased. It does not effect the processing speed.

  27. 27. History of the Internet <ul><li>Mid 1960: Papers on “Packet Switching” emerge. </li></ul><ul><li>End 1969s: ARPA sponsors the development of a packet-switching network, called the ARPANET. First four nodes are UCLA, SRI, U. Utah, UCSB. </li></ul><ul><li>1974: The TCP/IP protocols and model are being proposed by Cerf/Kahn. </li></ul><ul><li>1980: IPv4 is introduced </li></ul><ul><li>1983: ARPANET adopts TCP/IP. At this time, the ARPANET has 200 routers. </li></ul><ul><li>1984: NSF funds a TCP/IP based backbone network. This backbone grows into the NSFNET, which becomes the successor of the ARPANET. </li></ul><ul><li>1995: NSF stops funding of NSFNET. The Internet is completely commercial. </li></ul>
