Study Notes

Computer Hardware Components

  • RAM (Random Access Memory) is a type of primary storage device that stores data temporarily while a computer is running.
  • ROM (Read-Only Memory) is a type of non-volatile memory that permanently stores data.
  • A storage device is used to store data either temporarily or permanently in a computer system.

CPU (Central Processing Unit)

  • The CPU is responsible for performing all arithmetic and logical operations in a computer system.
  • The control unit of the CPU directs the operation of the whole computer system.
  • Registers are used to store temporary results and control information within the CPU.

Input/Output Devices

  • Plotters are used as output devices in a computer system.
  • A scanner is an example of an input device in computer hardware.
