What are computer devices that are used as both output and input devices?
Devices that are used for both input and output are known as I/O devices. I/O means input and output. Hard drives are an example of I/O devices.
Typical output devices in a computer system are the monitor, speakers and the printer. Some devices that perform both input AND output operations are referred to as I/O (input/output) devices and their operations are called I/O operations. Examples of common input and output components are disk drives and modems.
Input I would have thought. If you are refering to the big readers of the 80-column punched card then they are Input devices. But many of these devices were made so that they could also be used for output - ie for punching cards - these are both Input and Output devices. A card reader is an INPUT (not imput) device. Whenever you are trying to categorize a device as Input or Output, think of…
Input devices are all devices (appliances) which provide data to the computer. These include CD drives, microphones, mouse, keyboard and more. Output devices are all devices which provide data to the user or another computer. These could be monitor or printer. There are hybrid devices which can both be used for input and output, e.g. network links or CD burners.
Input device is a device that sends data to the computer. Such device is a mouse, keyboard, microphone, camera and a scanner. Output device is a device that outputs data. It receives data from the computer and does something with it. Such device is a monitor, speaker and a printer. Even though some devices have both way communication with the computer they are still either an input or an output device.
The sound card is an expansion card that allows the computer to send audio information to an audio device like speakers or a pair of headphones. Most sound cards also support a microphone or line-level input, so considering the sound card as a whole, it is both an input and an output device. Strictly speaking, however, the sound card is neither input nor output device. A sound card is a module which contains both input…
I expect you mean "Is Card reader/writer input or output?". If this is so, it is both an input and output device. Whenever you are trying to categorize a device as Input or Output, think of how it looks from the computer. If the computer is transmitting data to it, it is an Output device. If the computer is receiving data from it, it is an Input device.
Both, with a computer in the same package. The tablet screen contains two components: transparent touch overlay - position sensitive point & click input device backlit LCD panel - color flat panel display output device There are also typically many other input/output devices in a typical tablet: camera - input, wifi - input/output, microSD slot - input/output, 3G - input/output, speaker - output, etc.
