3 3 An Introduction to Computer Studies Computer studies is a rapidly changing and increasingly popular subject area. This subject is intended for students who are meeting the subject for the first time. It gives full coverage of computer applications, the core and optional material from many examination syllabuses and is particularly relevant to students taking Computer Studies 7010/1/2/3, Cambridge O-level or International GCSE examinations. Major features include: full coverage of applications; a structured introduction to programming in a language-independent style; extensive coverage of techniques in systems analysis and design, algorithms, flow charts, DFDs and other areas of computers. By: Sabihuddin Ahmed

4 4 The aims of this subject are to provide an introduction to computing concepts and the technologies behind it, and To develop basic skills, analysis and logically applying in using software tools for productivity gains and utilizing the computer. No prior programming or computer science experience is required. (state what the student is expected to be able to do at the end of the course according to a given standard of performance) Subject Aims: Course Intended Learning Outcomes (CILOs) By: Sabihuddin Ahmed

12 12 Computer: What is a Computer? By: Sabihuddin Ahmed

13 13 What’s Inside a Computer System? By: Sabihuddin Ahmed

14 14 What is Computer? ComputerComputer –A kind of digital system All the information is represented, stored, and processed in binary digits. –A programmable device Processor inside – microprocessors, digital signal processor (DSP), microcontroller, etc. Processors can be programmed using their machine instructions. HardwareHardware –The physical elements of a computing system Printer, mother boards, wires, keyboard, CPU, DRAM, HDD, CD-ROM, network cards,.. SoftwareSoftware –The programs that provide the instructions for a computer to execute Operating systems: Windows, Linux, MacOS Translators: C compilers, Java interpreters, FORTRAN compilers Applications; Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, flight simulators, games, et By: Sabihuddin Ahmed

15 15 Layers of a Computer System By: Sabihuddin Ahmed

16 16 Information LayerInformation Layer –How to represent numbers, texts, images, audios, and videos –All the information is represented using binary digits, i.e. bits (0s and 1s) Hardware LayerHardware Layer –Physical components; CPU, memory, HDD, motherboards, gates and circuits Programming LayerProgramming Layer –Machine language, assembly language, high-level language, software Operating System LayerOperating System Layer –Interact with users, schedule programs, and manage hardware resources Application LayerApplication Layer –Solve real-world problems –Run application programs to use computer’s abilities to perform various tasks Communication LayerCommunication Layer –Computers are connected into networks so that they can share information and resources Layers of a Computer System: Cont’d… By: Sabihuddin Ahmed

17 17 Layers of Software Low-level languages By: Sabihuddin Ahmed

18 18 1.Application Package: 1.Application Package: A software package that is created for a specific purpose or industry. 2.System Software: 2.System Software: System software refers to the files and programs that make up your computer's operating system. System files include libraries of functions, system services, drivers for printers and other hardware, system preferences, and other configuration files. The programs that are part of the system software include assemblers, compilers, file management tools, system utilities, and debuggers. 3.High-Level Languages: 3.High-Level Languages: A programming language such as C, FORTRAN, or Pascal that enables a programmer to write programs that are more or less independent of a particular type of computer. Such languages are considered high-level because they are closer to human languages and further from machine languages. Layers of Software By: Sabihuddin Ahmed

19 19 4.Assembly Language: 4.Assembly Language: Assembly languages have the same structure and set of commands as machine languages, but they enable a programmer to use names instead of numbers.Each type of CPU has its own machine language and assembly language, so an assembly language program written for one type of CPU won't run on another. 5.Machine Language: 5.Machine Language: Machine languages are the only languages understood by computers. While easily understood by computers, machine languages are almost impossible for humans to use because they consist entirely of numbers. Low-level languages: By: Sabihuddin Ahmed
