Fourth Generation Computers

The computers manufactured and used during the period 1971 – Present are called Fourth Generation Computers. All modern day computers are Fourth Generation Computers. All of us are using Fourth Generation Computers for our day-to-day activities. With the improvement in the IC (Integrated Circuit), the size of the computers started to go down. Invention of […]

Third Generation Computers

The computers during the period 1965 to 1971 are regarded as the Third Generation Computers. The development of Third Generation Computers resulted in the end of the usage of first and second generation computers. Though transistors used in Second Generation Computers were clearly an improvement over the vacuum tube used in First Generation Computers, Second […]

Second Generation Computers

The computers during the period 1945 – 1956 are regarded as the Second Generation Computers. During 1960’s, many second generation computers were used in business and by universities and government from computer manufactures such as IBM, Burroughs, etc. These second generation computers were also of solid state design, and contained transistors in place of vacuum […]

First Generation Computers

First generation computers were characterized by the fact that operating instructions were made-to-order for the specific task for which the computers was to be used. Each computer has a different binary-coded program called a machine language that told it how to operate. This made the computer difficult to program and limited its versatility and speed. […]


Microprocessor is a silicon chip that contains a CPU. Microprocessor has a single integrated circuit (IC, or microchip) which performs most of the functions of computer’s CPU. In the world of personal computers, the terms microprocessor and CPU are used interchangeably. At the heart of all personal computers and most workstations sits a microprocessor. Microprocessors […]
