Computer Architecture

Computing and Computer:

We can divide the computer and computing in two categories by nature and limitation:

a. The Nature of Compuing:

1.The brain vs the computer
2.Abstract number

b. Limitations of Computer

We can also divide by evolution:

A. THE evolution of computer

First Generation Computer

2nd generation copmputer

3rd generation computer

4th generation computer(VLSI)

We can also divide the VLSI by three categories:

By Integrated Circuits:

IC Density
IC Families

By Processor Architecture:

Personal Computers
Performance Considerations
Performance Measures
Speed Up Technics

By System Architecture:

Basic Organizations
Computer Networks
Parallel Processing
