Hardware History Timeline

  • First Generation of computers

    First electronic computers were created in United States, UK, and Germany. This is the begging of computers which will eventually change the world.

    Games consoles were in vented by Ralph h. Baer in the early 1950s.

    The Second Generation: The Era of the Transistor

    The transistor computer did not last as long as the vacuum tube computer lasted, but it was no less important in the advancement of computer technology. In 1947 three scientists, John Bardeen,William Shockley, and Walter Brattain working at AT&T's Bell Labs invented what would replace the vacuum tube forever. This invention was the transistor which functions like a vacuum tube in that it can be used to relay and switch electronic signals.

    The Third Generation: Integrated Circuits - Miniaturizing the Computer

    Transistors were a tremendous breakthrough in advancing the computer. However no one could predict that thousands even now millions of transistors (circuits) could be compacted in such a small space. The integrated circuit, or as it is sometimes referred to as semiconductor chip, packs a huge number of transistors onto a single wafer of silicon. Robert Noyce of Fairchild Corporation and Jack Kilby of Texas Instruments independently discovered the amazing attributes of integrated circuits. Pla
  • Minicomputer

    The first minicomputer was invented by American engineer Kenneth olsen.

    The Fourth Generation: The Microprocessor

    This generation can be characterized by both the jump to monolithic integrated circuits(millions of transistors put onto one integrated circuit chip) and the invention of the microprocessor (a single chip that could do all the processing of a full-scale computer). By putting millions of transistors onto one single chip more calculation and faster speeds could be reached by computers. Because electricity travels about a foot in a billionth of a second, the smaller the distance the greater the

    The Kodak camera was invented in 1975 by steven sasson
  • Digital Camera

    Steve sasson invented the first digital camera in 1975.
  • IBM PC

    The IBM pc was invented to Philip Don Estridge in the year 1980

    Atanasoff-Berry Computer

    John Vincent Atanasoff (1903-1995)
    Clifford Berry (1918-1963)
    Engineers at Iowa State University built this working reconstruction of the Atanasoff-Berry Computer between 1994 and 1997. It is slightly smaller than the original, which was too wide to fit through a standard door— one reason why the original was not preserved.
  • Smartphones

    In the year 2010 Nokia created the first smartphone Symbian.
  • Fifth Generation: Artificial Intelligence

    Fifth generation computing devices, based on artificial intelligence, are still in development, though there are some applications, such as voice recognition, that are being used today. The use of parallel processing and superconductors is helping to make artificial intelligence a reality. Quantum computation and molecular and nanotechnology will radically change the face of computers in years to come. The goal of fifth-generation computing is to develop devices that respond to natural language
