The introduction of a piece of technology called “Microprocessor” has changed the way in which we view, analyze and control the world surrounding us over the past two decades. The first commercial microprocessor is 4-bit 4004 developed by Intel and was made available in 1971. Since then, it took a phenomenal success in its development and usage. Microprocessor is considered a product of combined developments in the fields of computer architecture and Integrated Circuit (IC) fabrication. It has made the concept of personal computing very feasible.
Alan Turing’s genius as a mathematician was recognized in his day for his ability to solve the most sophisticated encryption algorithms of the Second World War. The team at Bletchley Park known as “the Codebreakers” created fake messages so perfectly that the Axis forces did not realize that the Allies were intercepting and faking crucial messages within the Nazi military communications system. Many historians consider Turing’s contribution as the single most important accomplishment toward the success of the Allied Forces.
Cloud computing is one of the most explosively expanding technologies in the computing industry today. However it is important to understand where it came from, in order to gure out where it will be heading in the future. While there is no clear cut evolutionary path to Clouds, many believe the concepts originate from two specic areas: Grid Computing and Web 2.0.
From research work to modern engineering processes, high rates of encoded information in multiple signals from simultaneous processes have forced data acquisition (DAQ) systems to evolve. This article gives you insight on the latest in DAQ systems
ARM is a family of instruction set architectures used in making computer processors developed by ARM Holdings. It is based on the reduced instruction set computing architecture which is commonly called as RISC. In 2010, ARM Holdings, plc reported shipments of approximately 6100 million ARM-based processors to manufacturers of chips based on ARM architectures, representing 35 per cent of digital TVs and set-top boxes, 95 per cent of smartphones and 10 per cent of mobile computers. As of 2014, ARM is the most widely used 32-bit instruction set architecture in terms of quantity produced.
Computer Technology is the study of the hardware and software that are the foundations of modern computer systems. Computers are now a fundamental part of everyday lives, controlling everything from toasters to nuclear power stations. The need to build and deploy effective computing infrastructure is now crucial to business and other organisations.
