Types of Computer

Digital Computer :- Computer which are used today are digital computer. They manipulate numbers and operate on binary digits. Information is represented in this computers in group of bits. These types of computer have two states 0 and 1.


a) Super Computer :- The processing speed of the super computer is 400-10000 MIPS, word lengths are 64 to 96 bits and memory capacity is 256 MB or more, Hard disk capacity is 1000 GB or more.

b) Mainframe Computer :- The processing speed of these computers are 30 to 100 MIPS (Millions of Instruction per second), word length are 48, 60, 64 bits. Memory capacity of these computers are 64 to 256 MB or more and hard disk capacity is 1 to 10 GB or more.

c) Mini Computer :- The processing speed of these computer are 10 to 30 MIPS (Million of Instruction per seconds), word length are 32 bits. Memory capacity of these computers are 8 to 96 MB or more and hard disk capacity is 380 GB or more.

d) Micro Computer :- The smallest category of computers which are fabricated using a micro processor and other integrated circuits.

e) Hybrid Computer :- Hybrid computer is a combination of an analog and a Digital Computer. These types of computer works on both type of signals means analog signals and digital signals.
