The Five Generations of Computers Explained with Stage by Stages

The Five Generations of Computers Explained with Stage by Stages..............
The term ‘computer generation’ is often used in relation to the hardware of computers. Each phase of computer development is known as a separate generation of computers. Each phase of development is characterised by the type of switching circuits it utilized.Most computers today use the idea of ‘stored program computer’, proposed by Dr. John Von Neumann in 1945. The architecture of a computer is based on three key concepts;
i. Data and instructions are stored in a single read-write memory.
ii. The memory contents are addressable by locations. iii. Execution takesplace in a sequential fashion, from one instruction to the next unless modified  explicity. First Generation Computers (1949-55) The first generation used vaccum tubes, and machine laguage was used for giving instructions. They used the concept of ‘stored program’.

He worked extraordinarily hard for the cause of the Muslims and the reward of the continued struggle came in the form of the creation of Pakistan on August 14, 1947.

Quaid-e-Azam and his team of dedicated workers had given enormous sacrifices for achieving their cherished goal. Pakistan had not come into being by mere chance or fluke. It had needed sacrifices of all sorts from the Muslims who stood firm and united under the dynamic leadership of Quaid-e-Azam.
