In fact, some mid­twentieth­century breeds of these electron tubes contain no vacuum at all, but are filled with conductive gasses, such as mercury vapor, which can provide desirable electrical behavior.  He aptly named this phenomenon thermionic emission.  Fleming used his ideas to invent an electronic valve later called a diode tube or rectifier. The diode was well suited for changing alternating current into direct current, but the greatest power of the electron tube was yet to be discovered.

Thus, the Z1 correctly belongs in the first generation, although it had no tubes.  Zuse's impressive machines could not be refined until after the war and ended up being another "evolutionary dead end" in the history of computers.  Presper Eckert.  The ENIAC had a memory capacity of about 1,000 information bits (about 20 10­digit decimal numbers) and used punched cards to store data.  Fortunately, the United States Army was more interested.  During the next decade, vacuum tube systems continued to improve and were commercially successful.

But keep in mind that your abilities far surpass those of any computer in the world today, or any that can be built in the foreseeable future.  We believe that with a little explanation, we can clear the fog.  As we progress through this book, you will learn the concepts behind these terms. Before we explain the ad, however, we need to discuss something even more basic: the measurement terminology you will encounter throughout your study of computers.  Therefore, these prefixes are given in both powers of 10 and powers of 2.
