Computers are computing units that perform arithmetic operations on a mechanical, electrical or electronic basis. From a historical point of view, the earlier mechanical and electrical calculators that worked on a relay basis already belong to the generic term computer. In addition to digital computers and hybrid computers, the classic analog computers must also be included in terms of computing methods. Later, in the 1940s, computers were developed with electron tubes, followed in the 1950s by transistors, which were replaced in the 1960s by integrated circuits(ICs) and microprocessors.
