dc.description.abstract This thesis is a resource document for computer information that is not presently available as a single unit. It describes most of the commonly available computer peripherals and some not-so-common ones from the micro, mini, and mainframe computer worlds. Physical descriptions, methods of operation, trouble shooting, maintenance, and some schematics and future trends are covered. A few older devices having historical significance are also discussed.By knowing where the computer industry is currently and seeing where it has been hardware-wise, it should be possible to project the direction in which the computer industry is headed. People in the computer profession and people that use computers need to be educated about peripheral devices so that they may make informed decisions on which equipment to acquire and in planning for the future. This thesis should be a valuable aid in this process. The information presented should save time and money during the decision-making process and lead to more effective choices of equipment. en_US
