Computers

A technology of change


Computer technology l.jpg
Computer Technology

  • Everyone needs to know the components of the equipment you will be using


Hardware l.jpg
Hardware

  • Anything physical

  • That you can touch


Identify computer hardware l.jpg
Identify Computer Hardware

  • Important to know and understand the equipment you will be using

  • This class uses the DOS based Personal Computer platform


The computer tower l.jpg
The Computer Tower

Also referred to as the CPU

Floppy Drive

Power Switch

Compact Disk

Player

Or CD-ROM

Chassis


Slide6 l.jpg
CPU

  • Central Processing Unit

  • The intelligence of the computer

    • All processing occurs within the CPU


Inside the chassis l.jpg
Inside the Chassis

Where the processing components are housed


Cpu circuitry l.jpg
CPU Circuitry

  • Silicon chips

    • Contain miniaturized circuitry

    • Placed on boards

    • Plugged into slits

    • Within the CPU

  • Process instructions given to the computer


Memory l.jpg
Memory

  • ROM

    • Read Only Memory

    • Built into computer

    • Non-volatile (permanent)

  • RAM

    • Random Access Memory

    • Memory chips

    • Volatile – can be changed

    • Temporary while working


Memory ram l.jpg
Memory – RAM

  • Random Access Memory


Hard drive l.jpg
Hard Drive

  • The memory storage bank for the computer

  • Software and data stored on it

  • Size of memory storage is measured in:

    • Megabytes

    • Gigabytes



Processing cards l.jpg
Processing Cards

  • Mini-processing chips and circuits

  • Each performs a special and unique function

    • Video Card

    • Audio Card

    • Modem

    • Ethernet Card

    • Device Manager

    • Etc.


Processing cards14 l.jpg
Processing Cards

  • Many Types

Video, Audio, Modem, Ethernet, Etc.


Peripherals l.jpg
Peripherals

  • Hardware

  • Anything external (outside of) the chassis/CPU

  • Many types of functions and equipment


Peripherals16 l.jpg
Peripherals

  • Anything outside of the Chassis


Two types l.jpg
Two Types

  • There are two types of peripherals

    • Input

      • User sends data to the computer

      • User gets data and/or information from the computer

    • Output

  • Called I/O

    • In/Out


Slide18 l.jpg
I/O

  • Input and Output Devices

Input

Output


Input devices l.jpg

Input Devices

Any Device that the operator uses to put data into the computer


Keyboard l.jpg
Keyboard

  • Input device for individual characters and commands

  • Alpha, numeric, symbols, functions


Mouse l.jpg
Mouse

Input device that inputs data easier than keyboard commands



Portable storage devices l.jpg

Floppy Drive

Portable Storage Devices

  • Either Input or Output

  • Save and transfer data and/or information between computer and portable storage device

  • Uses a corresponding disk drive






Image data capture l.jpg
Image/Data Capture

  • Input devices that capture data and/or images

  • Programmed to transfer the data directly into the computer






Sound capture l.jpg
Sound Capture

  • Devices that capture sound from an external source (peripheral)

  • Then transfer that sound as a digital file into the computer




Miscellaneous input devices l.jpg
Miscellaneous Input Devices

  • There are a broad range of other input devices

  • Just a few are shown here

  • Perhaps you can think of something else?





Output devices l.jpg

Output Devices

All hardware that the operator uses to download information


Monitor l.jpg
Monitor

  • Looks like a television screen

  • Displays information

    • Of a program

    • Text being input at keyboard

  • Quality and size vary


Televisions l.jpg
Televisions

  • Output images and sound

  • Similar to monitors


Printer l.jpg
Printer

  • When you create a document in a program

    • It is a Soft Copy

  • If you want a Hard Copy

    • You need to print it

  • Printers output your information onto paper



Speakers l.jpg
Speakers

  • Speakers are sound output devices

  • Quality and size vary greatly


Projectors l.jpg
Projectors

  • Projectors output video and sound

  • Send images to an external screen



Handheld computers48 l.jpg
Handheld Computers

Both I and O


Assignment l.jpg
Assignment

  • Find a computer outside of this classroom

    • State what computer it is and where you found it

    • Classify it as new, moderately new or outdated

  • List all of the peripheral devices on that computer

    • Classify them as Input or Output
