Third generation of computers, Basic Computer Science

THE THIRD GENERATION (1966-1975)

The introduction of IBM-360 series of computers in 1965 marked the beginning of this generation. The transistors were replaced by solid state technology and integrated circuits. This offered:

  •     Greater miniaturization
  •     Effective use of Input/Output devices
  •     Random access and mass storage devices
  •     High speeds (of the order of Nano seconds, i.e. 10–9 seconds)
  •     Time sharing and Multiprograming capabilities
  •     Higher level languages like COBOL/FORTRAN, etc.
  •     Modular design
  •     Large memory.
