Generation of computer:Here The generation of computer have been described time Wise with respect to their uses technologies.
First Generation (1946 to 1955):The first generation of computer was vaccume tubes. One vaccume tube cosume half watt power. Example- ENIAC,EDSAC,EDVAC,UNIVAC-I,UNIVAC-II,IBM-701,IBM-650,Mark-2,Mark-3 etc.
Second Generation (1955 to 1965): Second generation computer used transistors which were made of semiconductor. Example- IBM-1401,IBM-1602,IBM-7094,CDS-3600, RAC-501,UNIVAC-1107 etc.
Third Generation (1965 to 1975):Third generation computer used integrated circuits or chips which has hundred of transistors on a single body. Example- IBM-360,IBM-370,ICL-1900,ICL-2900,CDS-3000,CDS-6000,CDS-7000 etc.
Forth Generation (1975 to 1990):Forth generation computer used micro processor chips that is why it was based on Very Large Scale Integrater. Example- Pantium-I, Pantium-II, Pantium-III,Pantium-IV.
Fifth Generation (under developing stage, 1990 to till now): Fifth generation computer was based on super large scale integrater . assigned by automatic intelligence. Full name of ENIAC- electronic numeric integrator and calculator. Full name of EDSAC- electronic delayed storage automatic computer. Full name of EDVAC- electronic discrete variable automatic computer. Full name of UNIVAC- Universal automatic computer .
