Milestones in the Computer History

1. Invention of the Vacuum Tube (Electron Lamb) 1930
After invention of the Vacuum Tubes, the first electronic computer was built.

Because transistor is smaller than the vacuum tube. more smaller computer was able to built. .Milestones in the Computer History 2. Invention of the Transistors. 1959 After invention of the Transistor. Also a transistor consumes less energy and can operate faster than a vacuum tubes.

IC (Electronic Chips). Invention of the Integrated Circuits. 1965 Because An Integrated Circuit is made up of the thousands of the transistors it was able to manufacture more and more smaller computers.Milestones in the Computer History 3. .

Because A Microchip is made up of the millions of the transistors it was able to be manufactured portable computers.Milestones in the Computer History 4. In year 2001 Pentium 4 has 42 millions transistors In year 2004 Pentium 4 EE 169 millions transistors . Personal Computer was able to be produced. 1971 After the invention of the Microchips. Invention of Microprocessors (Microchips).
