DEFINITION & TYPES OF PERIPHERAL Peripheral Device External hardware devices attached to the computer are called peripheral devices There are three types of peripheral devices : Input devices Output devices Storage devices Input Devices Input devices are any electronic device that are connected to a computer and produces input signals. Output Devices Output is the result of data processing activity when it is presented externally to the system. The output from a computer can be printed or displayed form . An output device is hardware that is capable of delivering or showing information to one or more users. An output device shows, prints and presents the results of a computers work. Storage Devices Information and documents are stored in a computer storage so that it can be retrieved whenever they are needed later on. Computer storage is the holding of data in an electromagnetic form for access by a computer processor. Units for Data Measurement Bit Byte Kilobyte (KB) Megabyte (MB) Gigabyte (GB
