Input, Processing, & Output Devices

Hardware l.jpg


  • Hardware

    Any machinery (most of which uses digital circuits) that assists in the input, processing, storage, & output activities of an information system

Hardware components 1 l.jpg

Hardware Components (1)

  • Central Processing Unit (CPU)

    A hardware component that performs computing functions utilizing the ALU, control unit, & registers

  • Arithmetic/Logic Unit (ALU)

    Performs mathematical calculations & makes logical comparisons

  • Control Unit

    Sequentially accesses program instructions, decodes them, coordinates flow of data in/out of ALU, registers, primary & secondary storage, & various output devices

Hardware Components (2)

  • Registers

    • High-speed storage areas used to temporarily hold small units of program instructions & data immediately before, during, & after execution by the CPU

    • Primary Storage

    • Holds program instructions & data (a.k.a. main memory)

    Multiprocessing l.jpg


    • Multiprocessing

      • The simultaneous execution of two or more instructions at the same time.

    • Coprocessor

      • Speeds processing by executing specific types of instructions while the CPU works on another processing activity.

    IS for Management

    Parallel processing figure 3 7 l.jpg

    Parallel Processing(Figure 3.7)

    • Parallel processing

      • A form of multiprocessing that speeds the processing by linking several processors to operate at the same time or in parallel

      • Splits task to be processed by multiple processors, then solutions are compiled/ combined to provide a result

      • e.g., uses both cached information & parallel processing via hundreds of desktop computers.
