Describe the 5 key parts of a micro-computer.


A micro-computer is a machine built with hardware and ran by software. The 5 key parts among the various hardware and software are as follows.

Write down about the computer hardware devices in the organization of a micro computer.


A basic PC (Personal Computer) has a number of computer hardware elements. Most of these elements are contained in the system unit of the micro computer. The hardware devices in the organization of a micro computer are as follows.

What is Bus and Bus Speed? Illustrate interconnected buses in motherboard.

Bus:

Bus is an electrical path that resides inside the motherboard. There are two main types of bus; internal or system bus and external or expansion bus. The system bus connects the CPU to other devices and the expansion bus connects the external devices such as keyboard, mouse etc. to the CPU. The three main parts of the bus are control lines, address lines and data lines.


5 Differences between RAM and Cache Memory

RAM (Random Access Memory) is a volatile memory which is used by the CPU as the Primary Memory of the system. CPU stores frequently used data of the programs running at a moment in RAM as RAM is faster than storage devices, this helps the CPU to work faster. 

7 Differences between RAM and ROM

RAM stands for Random Access Memory and ROM stands for Read Only Memory. Both of these devices are memory devices and are required by a system to function. Following are the differences between RAM and ROM.

8 Differences between optical and magnetic storage devices.


Optical Storage Devices:

Optical storage devices are flat, round disks that spins around its center. The difference with magnetic storage device is that in optical storage devices LASER light is used to read and write data in disks. Examples are CD, DVD etc.

Compare among Assembler, Compiler and Interpreter

Assembler, compiler and interpreter are translator software but they are different mostly on how they translate.

What are the different types of programming languages based on evolution history. Discuss.

Based on evolution history, programming languages are divided into these three broad categories, they are as follows,

Write short notes on Optical Storage Device


Storage Device:

Those memory devices where we can store data and the data remains in it even without electricity are called storage devices. Along with various programs and system software, user can also keep, delete, move, update the data in storage devices, while this can not be done in memory devices by the user.

Storage devices are very important, along with the need storage for our data, the system software needs to store it's necessary file and configuration even when the computer has no electricity. 

There are primarily 2 types of storage devices; one of those are Optical Storage Devices.
