Third Generation ( 1964- 1982 )
Invention of technology of integrated circuits created computers of third generation. In several logical gates are fabricated on a single piece of silicon. Size of computers was further reduced computing power increased cost reduced in this generation technology of changed from SSI (small scale integration less than 12 logical gates on a single chip) to MSI ( medium scale integration more than 100 gates on a single chip) and then to LSI ( large scale integration more than 100 gates on a single chip. IBM 360 PDP -8 , PDP 11, CRAY -1, VAX were the name of few computer of third generation.
