Hardware

Hardware can be described as the physical part of a computer. In computing hardware is everything that refers to the computer as a machine and its physical equipment.

Hardware

The Hardware is not a physical component only of personal computers. It is also present on tablets, smartphones, among others.

A good example of hardware is the computer screen where you can see this page. Without the hardware could be the computer, since any software that depends on it to work.

There is hardware internal and external. Let’s see below some examples

Examples of hardware external:

  • Flat screen and LCD;
  • Keyboard;
  • Microphone;
  • Mouse;
  • Speaker;
  • Scanner;
  • Printer;
  • Usb flash drive.

Examples of hardware internal:

  • CPU;
  • Drive;
  • Modem;
  • Cards( video, network, etc.);
  • Motherboard;
  • RAM;
  • Fan( heat sink).

It is always possible to do a hardware upgrade. Doing an upgrade means replacing a hardware by another with the aim of improving the performance of the equipment, such as, for example, the upgrade of the RAM memory or switching cards to improve the performance of the computer.

We can distinguish some types of hardware:

  • Hardware network

Hardware of network is an equipment that enables the use of a network of computers. Are network devices, that is, physical means necessary for there to be communication between certain components. These devices are responsible for the transmission of data and facilitate the operations of a network of computers.

A network of hardware can contain different components that contribute to the overall functioning of the network system. Among them we can mention the network adapters, modem, switches, gateway, wireless access points, or other devices that make up the full operations of a network system.

Hardware and software

For the hardware to perform its function is required to be entered therein some software that can perform a number of tasks. Software is a computer program that can be used to inform and interpret the data controlling the operation of the computer. It is the part of logic that is required for a good functioning of the hardware and both are interdependent.

Without software, computers would be useless. For example, without a correct software you would not be able to navigate on the internet, even with an equipment in hand. Without an operating system, the browser may not be executed and therefore you will not have access to the internet.

There are many sites that are specialized in matters related to information technology. Many of them such as the Club of the Hardware post periodically articles, tutorials and information. Even with a forum where people can discuss on various topics related to the subject.
