Electronic Computer

 

a computer in which the basic functional elements (logic, memory, indicator, and other units) are made from electron tubes, semiconductor devices, integrated microcircuits, and the like. The first electronic computers, both analog and digital types, appeared in the mid-1940’s. Because of their superior (in comparison with other types of computers) speed, compactness, reliability, and automation of the computational process, electronic computers are greatly preferred for use in scientific and technical computations, data processing (including planning, recording, and forecasting), and automatic control.
