  • Professor Implants Computer Chip In Arm
    1,287 words
    The impression that I have gotten from the latest magazines and websites about microchips is that the chip is definitely the mile stone in computer hardware. Computer chips make up our everyday lives enabling many of the things we use like coffee machines, microwaves, ATMs, and computers work and are reliable for use. These chips are no larger than a fingernail and are getting smaller every other year and are amazingly capable of holding over 1.5 million transistors. The computer chips history i...
  • Known As The Motherboard's Chip Set
    518 words
    January 28, 2005 The motherboard is the main circuit board of a microcomputer. The motherboard contains the connectors for attaching additional boards. Typically, the motherboard contains the CPU, BIOS, memory, mass storage interfaces, serial and parallel ports, expansion slots, and all the controllers required to control standard peripheral devices, such as the display screen, keyboard, and disk drive. Collectively, all these chips that reside on the motherboard are known as the motherboard's c...

    Microprocessors Inside of the mysterious box that perches ominously on your desk is one of the marvels of the modern world. This marvel is also a total enigma to most of the population. This enigma is, of course, the microprocessor. To an average observer a microprocessor is simply a small piece of black plastic that is found inside of almost everything. In How Microprocessors Work they are defined as a computer's central processing unit, usually contained on a single integrated circuit (Wyant a...
  • Third Generation Of Computers
    514 words
    MAINFRAME COMPUTERS Third generation of computers began with the development of IC (Integrated Chip), which is made up of miniaturized transistors, and all put in a silicon chip these were called semiconductors that average size was 1/2 inch by about 1 inch. The third generation of computers brought huge gains in computational power. The first ICs were based on small-scale integration otherwise known as SSI Circuits, each circuit had about 10 devices per chip (IC) and advanced to medium scale in...
  • Intel's New Pentium Chip
    1,869 words
    INTEL Knows Best? A Major Marketing Mistake Problem Statement When Thomas Nicely, a mathematician at Lynchburg College in Virginia, first went public with the fact that Intel's new Pentium chip was defective Intel admitted to the fact that it had sold millions of defective chips, and had known about the defective chips for over four months. Intel said its reasoning for not going public was that most people would never encounter any problems with the chip. Intel said that a spreadsheet user doing...
  • Very First Cpu Microprocessor
    689 words
    A Central Processing Unit (CPU) is a chip, containing a microprocessor, at the heart of most every modern computing electronic. A microprocessor is a small integrated circuit or chip, comprised of silicon and transistors, which interprets electrical impulses, performs operations on the electrical impulses, and sends the impulses to another device. The transistors are simple switches that turn on and off, allowing the electrical impulses through when on or 'open'. Microprocessors are very small. ...
  • Inputs Data Into The Computer
    1,862 words
    Computers The Computer that you know these days is a small thing that sits on a desk in your room that is composed of a monitor, keyboard, mouse and a small box. But computers have changed so much that if you seen old computer you would never recognize it. The first computer was built in the early 17 hundreds. You probably heard that the first computer was made in the 1950's but computers have been around for hundreds of years. All a computer is is something that calculates number. So these comp...

    My Dream PC By: Allis a Rocklitz After perusing the isles amongst isles of desktop computers at CompUSA I found myself drawn to the Sony desktops. SONY is a high quality brand name and has shown me throughout the years that anything and everything they create seems to be a winner. Eventually I decided to get one that was practical in size and powerful enough to handle the most strenuous projects. I ended up decide ding on the Sony VAIO RA 834 G Minitower. The components in this PC were more than...
  • Only Programming Language The Computer
    1,953 words
    A common misconception about computers is that they are smarter than humans. Actually, the degree of a computer^1's intelligence depends on the speed of its ignorance. Today^1's complex computers are not really intelligent at all. The intelligence is in the people who design them. Therefore, in order to understand the intelligence of computers, one must first look at the history of computers, the way computers handle information, and, finally, the methods of programming the machines. The predece...
