Write short notes on ‘Third Generation Computers’ (1965 – 71)
Ans. In the early sixties integrated circuits were developed which were later on used in computers. Integrated circuits (I.C.) improved secondary stage devices, new input – output devices such as Visual Display Unit (V.D.U) and high speed printers. These computers came to be known as Mini computers. I.C.’s were more efficient and they were having much higher speed than transistors. Because of the I.C.’s it became possible to have lot of functions from computers. They had a very large memory. Also many computer languages were introduced.
