Fourth Generation of Computer

Fourth Generation of Computer (1971-present) Microprocessor

Thousands of integrated circuits were built onto a single silicon chip

As these small computers became more powerful, they could be linked together to form networks,

Which eventually led to the development of the internet

In the year 1975, an integrated circuit (IC) was developed, which

Could hold thousands of transistors on a single component.

This technique is known as large scale integration (LSI) circuits.

The concept of ‘Microprocessor’ came into existence with this generation, which led to ‘Microcomputer’.

However, in today’s world, the ‘Pentium’ series is considered to be one of the most powerful microprocessors developed by the ‘Intel corporation’. The USA.

Features of The Fourth Generation Computers 

These computers are for general purposes and widely used for commercial applications.

The storage capacity increased up to several GigaBytes or even Tera Bytes.

The power consumption of these computers is very less.

The language like SQL (Structured Query Language) C, C++, JAVA, etc.

Were developed in this generation.
