3rd Generation Computers

By: Tyler Henderson and Adam Soph


Official definition
Official Definition

  • A computer builtwithsmall-scale integration integrated circuits, designed after the mid-1960s.


Unofficial definition
Unofficial Definition

  • A computer made in the 1960’s that was one of first basic computers.


Examples
Examples

  • IBM 360: the IBM system/360 was a main frame computer system family first announced by IBM on April 7, 1964, and sold between 1964 and 1978. The design made a clear distinction between architecture and implementation, allowing IBM to release a suite of compatible designs at different prices.

Examples (continued)

  • Illiac IV: the Illiac IV was a supercomputer created in the late 1960s at the university of Illinois. It had 64 separate computers that were supervised by a common control unit. They were all able to work simultaneously.


Third generation of computers 1963 1972
Third Generation of Computers (1963-1972)

  • The development of the integrated circuit was the hallmark of the 3rd generation of all computers.

  • Instead of punch cards and print outs 3rd generation computers had the first keyboards that typed words on the monitor.

  • Conclusion: the computers were very successful until the 4th generation with mousses that but the old model out of business.

3rd Generation Computer (Continued)

  • The mass increase in the use of computers accelerated with 'Third Generation' computers. These generally relied on Jack Kirby's invention of the integrated circuit (or microchip), starting around 1965. However, the IBM System/360 used hybrid circuits, which were solid-state devices interconnected on a substrate with discrete wires.
