...Clip 1 Summary: There are three types of ports, serial, parallel, and game ports, and they have for the most part been replaced with USB ports. USB devices are hot swappable, can daisy chain, and 127 devices may be plugged into the computer USB ports. Modern mice and keyboards use PS/2 technology unlike older predated mice and keyboards, which used serial connectors, and a 5-pin bulky din connector. The network interface card is responsible for connecting your computer to your local network, a distant network, or to the internet. The dial-up modem is the slowest possible method of connecting to the internet, and it connects to the phone line; the standard speed for a modem is 56Kbps. Modern computers come with two types of video ports VGA and DVI, in addition may also have an S-Video port you may connect to the TV. SCSI connectors come with a variety of sizes, but the most common are the 50 pin connector for the A-type narrow SCSI cable, and the 68-pin connector for the p-type wide SCSI cable. IEEE 1394 also known as fire wire uses serial communication, it is very fast, hot swappable, and is especially useful when transmitting streaming media.

Nt1110 Unit 4 Assignment Video Summary

...Deborah Collins NT110 – Prof Whitehead Unit 4. Assignment Video 04/14/14 Motherboards come in several form-factors. When building a system, it is important to know what it will be used for before purchasing. Two of the most important parts need to be considered before the system is built – the CPU and the motherboard. There are several different types of CPUs and motherboards, so care should be taken that the CPU can be seated on the motherboard. Also, think about what the computer will be used for. General users will not need a top of the line system for browsing the web, email, social networking and word processing types applications, so a “bare-bones” type of computer may be a better selection. Systems used for gaming, video editing or high end graphics will need to have other considerations such as a higher end graphics card, more RAM and better than average cooling.

...1.05-Central Processing Unit (CPU) Video Summary #3_NT1110_Computer Structure and Logic April 17, 2014 Abstract In the video “1.05- CPU” I learned that there are two major manufacturers of CPU and they are Intel and AMD. CPU’s are organized by the motherboard system bus carries information into and out of the CPU. In the system bus the CPU is referred to as the Front side bus and usually uses a 64-bit wide data path. Inside the CPU there are controllers that manage basic functions of the CPU and control communication between the motherboard and other components within the CPU. The other components include one or more ALUs and the internal cache. An ALU is responsible for complex calculations. Communication between the controller and the ALUs uses a 32-bit internal bus. The bus system that supports the communication between the cache and the ALUs controller is the backside bus. The CPU speed is measured in GHz. There are several ways of measuring speed. The speeds differ inside and outside the processor. System bus speed is measure in MHz . The system bus speed is the actual factor that will control the speed of your computer. The ratio between processor and system bus is known as the multiplier. In older setting you may have to configure the multiplier in the CMOS setting. Multiprocessing is the ability to perform multiple functions simultaneously. True Multiprocessing requires multiple processors. Dual Core processors is another way of multiprocessing. Cache uses......

Video Summary

...Video 1.07 talked about different ports and connections on a computer motherboard or integrated card. Serial ports are male and have 9 to 25 connector pins. Parallel ports are female and have 25 connector pins. Serial connections send information one bit at a time while parallel connections send information 8 bits at a time. Game ports are female and contain 15 pins in 2 rows. Modern mouse and keyboard connections are PS/2, USB, or wireless. NIC connections convert parallel communication to serial and use an RJ-45 connector. A modem connection uses an RJ-11 connector and converts analog signals to digital signal and back. There are three types of video connections: VGA, DVI, and S-video. USB, or Universal Serial Bus, is hot-swappable, which means you can plug it into the computer while it is running and it will automatically configure without having to reboot. There are two types of SCSI connections: Narrow SCSI which is Type A with 50 pins, and Wide SCSI, which is Type P with 68 pins. IEEE 1394 or Firewire is Serial, fast, hot-swappable, and is used for streaming media. Last there is Multimedia which consists of your microphone, speaker, and earphone jacks.

Video Summary

...Unit 3 Assignment 1: Video Summary 1 2) Video one talks mostly about ports and the different kinds of ports that are used in computers today. It also covers what a modem is, its uses, and its speed. Video one teaches us what the difference of a wide SCSI and a narrow SCSI. The video shows all the different ports with all their pins and tells us whether they are male or female. One thing I have definitely learned from this video is what USB stands for and what it actually is. I also learned the difference between USB 1 and USB 2. Video two had a lot to do with computer displays and the different types of screens. In video two I learned the difference between a CRT display and a LCD display, it also talks about what is in both of them. It then goes into the contrast ratio and how the bigger the ratio, the better the video or the display is going to be. I always saw resolutions in my computer but I never knew what they stood for. I now know the standard resolutions and how they work. The video also talks about the video card and if you were building a computer how to know which video card would be worth buying. Video 3 goes into depth about printers and the three most common printers today. It talks about the differences between Dot Matrix, Inkjet, and Laser printers. Since Laser printers are very different from the other two, it went into further depth of the laser printer. The video teaches us multiple ways of how a laser printer can be cleaned. It also tells us......

...connect to the motherboard expansion slots to allow connection of additional expansion cards. * Riser cards are also known as Daughter cards BUSES * The copper traces you find on the bottom of your motherboard is considered the Bus System. It is considered the streets and highways that connect your components and transfer your data and power amongst them. * The system bus is the largest and fastest of the buses. Its purpose is to connect from the Motherboard to the CPU and back to the Motherboard. Expansion slots were 8 bit on the earlier computers. Now we use 16 bit expansion slots which carry twise the traffic the 8 bits carried. The expansion slots that we use are: * PCI, PCIx, PCIe * AGP which was specifically for Video PCIe being the fastest of all and soon to fully replace the AGP also. You will not find both PCIe and AGP on today’s Motherboards, it is not supported. There are a various connectors you need to be able to identify on the Motherboard. * P1 power supply - Pin 20 and Pin 24 Connector * 40 Pin IDE Connector * 34 Pin Floppy Drive Connector * SATA Connector * 50 or 68 Pin Internal SCSI Connector I have learned that you will not find both a AGP and a PCIe expansion port on a Motherboard these days. You will either have 1 AGP and multiple PCI’s or 1 PCIe and multiple PCI’s. I think the NLX form factor had a great advantage because you can add riser cards and have more expansion slots in case you needed to add more......

Unit 6 Assignment 1: Video Summary 4 ( Raid )

...Alberto Legra 01/28/2016 Unit 6 Assignment 1: Video summary 4 (RAID) 1. URL Of video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eE7Bfw9lFfs 2. Summary of video. In this video we learn the meaning of raid, what it does, and how to efficiently configure raid arrays. RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks. The three most common types of RAID; RAID 0, RAID 1, and RAID 10. Different raid configurations offer different advantages, like speed and reliability. RAID 0 is all about speed, by striping the data across 2 drives you can keep all of the capacity and double the read and write performance. However, RAID 0 provides no reliability, if one of your drives fail you will all of your data. RAID 1 in the other hand provides maximum reliability, but no performance increase. When both performance and reliability are needed, there is the option for a RAID 10 configuration. To configure a RAID 10 array, you need four drives, stripe the data on all four drives and mirror two against two. This RAID configuration allows you to get about double the performance and capacity of an individual drive, and you can lose up two drives without losing any data. 3. 3 topics mentioned in the video. * The meaning of RAID * Pros and cons of RAID configurations * How to configure RAID 4. 3 terms used in the video and their definitions. * Data striping: The technique of segmenting logically sequential data, such as a file. * RAID: Data storage virtualization......
