Types of Computers

The type of computers is a question where most of you might find a bit confused, as all you have heard about since your childhood is a Personal Computer(PC).

But you should be learned that there are various types of computers other than PC such as:

Personal Computers

No need to mention much about these computers. The computers we use in our daily life for various purposes, such as in offices for making presentations, for billing at a counter, for educational purposes, will fall under this category.

Supercomputers

These computers are way more advanced than the normal computers used in our households and offices.

These computers are capable of processing large amounts of data in a few milliseconds which is used by the organizations like ISRO for very complex calculations pertaining to the distance between planets and various other organizations.

There have been instances where a question regarding India’s first Supercomputer was asked. This comes under your Static GK as well, and such factual information should be read while preparing.

Hybrid Computers

A hybrid computer is a computer that has the features of both an analog as well as a functional computer.

It was basically designed to facilitate the working of an analog computer with a strong capability to perform calculations and has a good digital memory.

In this case, you should make sure that you read about the year in which the first hybrid computer was developed i.e. 1961.

Input/Output

Input and output are the topics that you find a bit difficult as you are not able to understand the difference between the two of these components of a computer. It can be understood with a simple example of an electronic pen and touch screen tablet.

The electric pen or stylus can be considered as the output which is then used to put a message onto the screen of the tablet. This command being put in is the input.

Therefore, input is anything that a user puts as a command into the system in order to get a result in response to that input which is called the output.

Arithmetic Logic Unit

This is also called “The Brain of Computer” as it performs the arithmetic and logic operations on the basis of operands in computer systems.

Data Size

The data in computers can also be measured just like other quantifiable things in our daily life such as sales, profit, etc, and the unit to measure such parameters is money.

Similarly, the basic unit of measuring or quantifying data in computing language is BITS and BYTES, where BITS is the smallest unit of data.

There are other units of data other than the two mentioned above and they have a hierarchy of such units. The units from smallest to largest are as follows:

  • Kilobyte
  • Megabyte
  • Gigabyte
  • Terabyte
  • Petabyte

It must be remembered that every bigger unit has 1024 units preceding a smaller unit.

For example:

1 megabyte is equal to 1024 kilobytes and 1gigabyte is equal to 1024 megabytes. It is essential to learn the hierarchy stated above as it cannot be changed.

There is one more point that should be remembered that there is a difference between bits and bytes because you may use both these terms interchangeably and still used sometimes because of their same pronunciation.

Internet

Internet is a thing without which we cannot imagine our lives, especially, in this pandemic-ridden world. So it becomes equally important to know the basics of the internet and its components as questions related to the internet can be asked.

It stands for Internet Protocol Address. In simple words, it can be described as the DNA of every computer system in this world as it is unique for the system.

There have been questions asked regarding its full form as well in previous year’s exams of various states.

WWW

It stands for World Wide Web. These three letters are known to everyone who has had even the slightest of interaction with the internet.

Questions regarding its founder, its year of the invention have been asked in Judiciary exams. So, it is necessary to have knowledge of WWW. This is so because it is one of the foundations of the internet and every website starts with it.

There is one more concept in the world of computers that is quite new i.e. Optic Fiber. It is more of an amalgamation of computers and physics.

These ultra-thin cables are used for wireless services by all the broadband services nowadays to provide the best speed to their users.

Questions like this may be asked in MCQ-type questions and if you know the answer it would add to the total tally of your score, thereby increasing the chances of getting into the merit list.

Timeline of Internet

Just like there is a history of everything, similarly, the computer world carries a big evolutionary history as well.

You should make notes in the form of a FLOW CHART to record the history of the internet, how it started, the important years of breakthrough inventions and discoveries, founders, companies being incorporated. For example:

1941:  Alan Turing built the prototype of a computer for decoding the messages during world war.

1958: the invention of Integrated Chips led to another revolution in the field of computer science which boosted advanced processing.

1968: INTEL was found by ROBERT NOYCE

1975: MICROSOFT was found by William Henry Bill Gates

1981: Naryana Murthy laid the foundation of India’s own IT giant- INFOSYS
