The word computer has been originated from the word compute means calculations.Computer is an electronic machine there are three steps in computerized system.
1. Input 2. Processing 3. Output.
D a t a:
Draw facts and figures is called data.
Processed form of data is called information.Computer is divided into two parts.
Physical equipment of the computer, Hardware devices may be electronic,magnetic or mechanical etc.
Any thing having physical existence is called as hardware.Hardware is divided into three steps
1. Input 2. Processing 3. Output.
I n p u t:
Keyboard ,mouse, light pen, scanner, microphone, digitizer etc.
CPU (central processing unit) processor ,floppy drives, hard disk, magnetic tape, CD drive, RAM, ROM,EPROM, POWER SUPPLY etc.
Random access memory (temporary storage device) all the variables defined is stored in ram.Memory that can be accessed randomly.Variable a = 10 value.
Read only memory not accessible.
Erasable programmable read only memory it is used in networks only.Also called boot ROM. In computers ASCII codes are allotted to all. ASCII code for a is 6564 32 16 8 4 2 11000001& Will be written (1000001) 2.Bit is the smallest unit in the computer.8 bits = 1 byte.1024 bytes= 1 KB1024 KB= 1 MB1024 MB= 1 GB1024 GB= 1 Triga byte.
anything having logical existence is called as software.
 Software: two categories
1. System programs2. Application program
Programs which control the internal operations of the computer system, e.g.operating systems.
Such programs which deals with (languages and the operating system) the computer operations.
Programs which are used for specific purposes, e.g. word processors,spread-sheets etc. They need system software to use hardware resources.
