This generation of computers have one or more of the following characteristics:

  •     Semi-conductor memory instead of core memory
  •     Introduction of “microprogramed logic”
  •     Usage of Operating System with “virtual memory” concept, which enabled a programer to write programs requiring more      memory pace than available in main memory.
