First generation (1940-1956) Vaccum Tubes

Second Generation(1956-1963)Transistors

Third Generation(1964-1971)Integrated circuits

Fourth Generation(1971-present)Microprocessors

We already know about some of the early computers - ENIAC , EDVAC , EDSAC , UNIVAC I and IBM . These machines and others of their time used thousands of vacuum tubes . A vacuum tube was a fragile glass device , which used filaments as a source of electronics and could control and amplify electronic signals . It was the only high-speed electronic switching device available in those days . These vacuum tube computers could perform computations in milliseconds and were referred to as first generation computers.

Generation in computer terminology is a step in technology. It provides the all information about the growth of computer industry. The term generation was used to distinguish between varying the hardware technologies. Now a days, it has been extended to include both hardware and software that together make up a computer system. There are five generations:- First generation (1942-55) Second Generation (1955-64) Third Generation (1964-75) Fourth Generation(1975-89) Fifth Generation (1989-Present) From:- (ROHIT KUMAR)
