The computer system consists of computer bundled with hardware and software. The word computer is derived from the word compute. Compute means to calculate.
A computer is an electronic device that accepts input, process it and generates output. The computer is programmed to accept data, do some processing on it and generates result.
The computer system primarily comprised of a central processing unit (CPU), memory, input/output devices and storage devices
The components of computer system work together as a single unit to deliver the desired output. The various components of computer system are:
The CPU is also called as brain of the computer. It is the electronic circuit where actual processing of data takes place. It is also known as processor of computer. It is responsible for all functions and processes.
The CPU is composed of integrated circuits (ICs).
It consists of three major parts:
The devices through which control signals are sent to a computer are termed as input devices. It translates data from form that humans understand to one that the computer can work with. Example of Input Devices are Keyboard, Mouse, Microphone, Scanner, Webcam etc.
The device that receives data from a computer system for display, physical production, etc., is called output device. It converts the electronically generated information into human-readable form. Example of Ouput Devices are Monitor, LCD, Speakers, Projectors, Printers etc.
