Analog computers only work with continuous numerical data in analog quantities, digital computers can process both non-numerical and numerical data and a hybrid computer is a combination of both analog and digital. A hybrid computer has the accuracy of a digital computer paired with speed of an analog one.Continue Reading
An advantage of an analog computer is the speed at which it can process data, although it is only capable of handling several digits or packets of data at a time. A digital computer has the ability to solve an innumerable amount of equations, but it is very slow in processing them. A hybrid computer has a digital component for logical operations, and an analog component that is able to solve differential equations.
Hybrid computers are also known for their seed value, or gauging a precise numerical seed at a medium rate of speed. However, a hybrid computer differs from a hybrid system. Hybrid computers have an exact and precise structure built in, and a hybrid system may just be a computer with a digital-to-analog converter or the reverse. An example of a standalone hybrid computer is the HRS-100, which was in extensive use during the 1970s. In more modern times, digital signal processors have replaced the need for hybrids.Learn more about Computers & Hardware
Government employees use computers for communication, word and data processing and project management among other applications. Computers have become part of daily life, and like businesses and individuals, federal and state offices use computers in their daily office operations.Full Answer >
Dell computers can be restored to their factory settings by tapping or holding one of the Function keys as the computer starts up. On most Dell machines, "F8" is the designated key, but on others, it may be "F2" or "F12."Full Answer >
Raspberry Pi is a simple computer designed to help children and adults learn how to build computers and use code, particularly in schools. The basic Raspberry Pi is the size of a credit card, but it can be expanded with many extra pieces to allow for more advanced electronic projects.Full Answer >
An eSATA connection is used to connect computers to external hard drives, and cannot be used to connect a computer to a television. Connecting to a television requires a display cable made to carry video signals.Full Answer >
