4. The tool known as ABACUS was the age-old tool used by man to count and calculate was designed and developed by Chinese some 5000 years ago. Blaise Pascal designed a working mechanical calculator in 1642. Gottfried Von Leibnitz a German, modified Pascal’s calculating machine which could multiply numbers directly. In 1833 Charles Babbage an English scientist, designed Analytical Engine using tooth wheels so that it could perform all mathematical operations in a predetermined sequence using a set of operational instructions. History | | <document classification>

5. Lady Ada Lovelace is considered as the first lady Computer Programmer as she has developed the concept of writing systematic operational instructions for the analytical engine. In 1850 George Boole an English mathematician proposed logic theory of using the binary (two) number system. This number system had (0 and 1). Bool proposed a logic popularly known as Boolean algebra. Computer processors are designed on this system of logic. A statistician Dr. Herman Hollerith, developed a punched card that would contain data coded in form of punched holes. History | | <document classification>

40. Multiprogramming Operating System:- The interleaved execution of two or more different and independent programs by the same computer.Multiprogramming is carried by placing the two or more user programs in main memory and executed them concurrently. The CPU switches from one program to another. | | <document classification>

41. Multi-Processing:- A system that makes the use of more than one CPU is called multiprocessing system. A multi-processing which describe interdependent computers with two or more independent CPU s have the ability to simultaneously execute programs. In this system, instructions from different and independent programs can be processed at the same instant of time by different CPU. | | <document classification>

42. BLOCK 2Computer Fundamentals: Communication, Networking, Security | | <document classification>

43. BASIC TERMS • Data are entities that convey meaning. Information is obtained by processing data using desired functions. • Signals are electric or electromagnetic encoding of data,and signaling is propagation of signal along communication medium. • Transmission is communication of data achieved by the propagation and processing of signals | | <document classification>

44. DATA COMMUNICATION CODES (Data encoding) • Computer manages, store and exchange data using electronic pulses or digital signals 0 or 1 0 1 OFF ON (absence) (presence) • Every char (letter, number, symbols) is composed of a group of bits called codes. | | <document classification>

45. Data Codes *American Standard code for information interchange **Extended Binary coded decimal interchange code | | <document classification>

46. Communication Speed or Rate:- • The speed at which two computers exchange or transmit data is called communication rate on transmission speed. • The unit of measurement of speed is measured using bps (bits per second) or baud. | | <document classification>

47. Private Vs Switched Channels • Private leased lines are permanently connected circuits between two or more points.These lines are available for private use by the leasing party. • Switched lines or dial up lines are available to any subscriber. For e.g. Telephone connection at our home or office | | <document classification>

48. Analog and Digital Transmission • An analog signal is one that is continuous with respect to time, and may take on any value within a given range of values. • Human voice, video and music when converted to electrical signal using suitable devices produce analog signals. • A digital signal may take on only a discrete set of values within a given range. Most computers and computer-related equipment are digital. | | <document classification>
