In History
  • The first generation

    The first generation
    In 1943 a british project under the leadership of Alan Turing created the Colossus, the first computer
  • The second generation

    The second generation
    In 1947 Bardeen, Schockley and Brattain invented the transistor, and in 1953 Jay Forrester built a magnetic memory with this they created Computers with transistors and increased processing power and speed
  • Third generation

    Third generation
    the introduction of integrated circuits. The Burroughs B-2500 was created. Concepts such as virtual memory, multiprogramming and complex operational systems emerge.
  • Third generation pt 2

    Third generation pt 2
    In 1975 Paul Allen and Bill Gates created Microsoft and the first microcomputer software, The ROM, with 8K capacity, permanently stored programs, tables, etc.
  • Fourth generation

    Fourth generation
    Manufactured by IBM in the USA in the year 1980, the IC LSI (Integrate Circuit Large Scale Integration) was created. The CPU had a 40KB ROM and a 64KB RAM memory expandable up to 640KB.
  • Fifth generation

    Fifth generation
    The Pentium was born in 1993, This advance causes that the speed and capacity of processing are better in addition there is a simplification and miniaturization of the computer
  • Sixth generation

    Sixth generation
    You could call the era of smart computers, the chips were getting smaller, faster and more efficient and based on artificial neural networks
  • Seventh generation

    Seventh generation
    LCD flat panel displays are beginning to become popular, and old cathode ray monitors are beginning to be replaced by this new technology also the expansion of instant messaging and electronic commerce, virtual reality, the use of wireless networks such as WiFi and Bluetooth
  • Eighth generation

    Eighth generation
    comes when the launch of the Nintendo 3DS occurs, and shortly after the arrival of the Sony PlayStation Vita on the market and the almost total disappearance of physical and mechanical devices, such as hard drives and motherboards
  • The Future

    The Future
    Here Comes the Quantum Computer
    IBM announced the construction of the world's most advanced quantum computer, instead of traditional silicon chip microprocessors, it uses a device based on the physical properties of atoms
