Transcript of Computers....
Gordon Moore was a great engineer that helped create intel, back in the 1960s. Intel is now one of the largest computer chip making companies in the world.
In 1965 he noticed that the number of transisitors in a computer chip was doubling roughly every two years, from this he predicted that this would carry on.
Gordons predictions turned out to be right.
This prediction came to be known as 'Moore's law'
Name: Gordon Moore
Born: January 3, 1929
Place of Birth: San Francisco, California, USA
Number of computer chips doubling by year.
The binary numeral system, or base-2 number system, represents numeric values using two symbols: 0 and 1. More specifically, the usual base-2 system is a positional notation with a radix of 2. Because of its straightforward implementation in digital electronic circuitry using logic gates, the binary system is used internally by almost all modern computers and computer-based devices such as mobile phones.
Binary 0 could be the same as a switch being on.
Binary 1 could be the same as a switc being off.
Wow, I loved doing this project. I have worked in groups of three before, but never in this way. Homework in groups set for completion over half term usually meant having to meet up or sorting it out in time. Using www.prezi.com to complete the project was great. I really enjoyed using it and I certainly found out alot from the research I made and also from referring to my group members research.
Overall, I found doing this project alot of fun. Being able to use and reflect each others own ideas made our project come out better and more unique.
Doing this project made me say:
It was certainly great
All computers need a set of instructions to follow in order to run or even boot up. These instructions are called "software code" or just "software" for short.
Software programs are stored either as files on devices such as hard disks or as permanent instructions burned into a memory such as ROM chips.
Software is initially written in a person-friendly computer language such as C, Java, FORTRAN and so on. A compiler and linker converts those lines of instructions into a code the computer can understand.
There are different classes or types of software depending on what it does. For example:
Is a software program that manages the components of a computer system and its data.
Is software program which enables you to perform a range of useful tasks.
Is a piece of software that performs a specific and useful task, for example compressing files
I really enjyed doing this project. I learned a lot form the research I've done and from the disscusions in class. Before I also did projects in grups, but never in that way. Using Prezi was a challange for me and the members of the group. It was a new tool to use, but as we worked as a team we worked everything out.
Overall I think that in all that mess in exploring Prezi and being able to use each others work and ideas, our project turned out suprisingly good.
The Motherboard is the main printed circuit board in the computer.
It has many sockets into which the CPU, memory (RAM and ROM), cards (sound, graphics, network interface etc) and peripheral devices are connected.
This is how the Motherboard looks like...
The Motherboard has a long history. Rather then just being invented as a completely new piece of technology, it came from a similar kind of board called the backplan. A backplan was just a motherboard with nothing on it.
The first motherboard was released in 1981 by IBM (International Business Machines ). Scince that larger companies made new inventions and improvments on the motherboard.
History of the Motherboard
The Motherboard is essential as a means of connecting all of the computer's parts together.Extra boards, called 'daughter boards' can be plugged into the motherboard.
I enjoyed doing this project . Even though I had a few problems with using Prezi.com it was still a lot of fun. I found all the research I done before a lot of help. I really liked the idea that we could do the same work together, being in three different places at the same time.
If I'll have a chance I will certainly use Prezi.com to make another fascinating and amazing project. It was a challange for me, but using teamwork our project looks amazing!.
