Difference between Input and Output devices
Input devices are the component of the computer system that accepts incoming data and instructions and converts them into a pattern of electrical signals in binary code that is understandable to a digital computer.
Example: Keyboard, mouse etc.
Output devices are the component of computer system that converts the digitized signals into a form understandable to the user. The output devices are generally known as reverse of input devices. Output devices also send data from one computer system to another.
example: Monitor, printer etc.
Difference between Input and Output devices:
|INPUT DEVICE||OUTPUT DEVICE|
|It accepts data from user.||It reflects processed data to user.|
|It is directly commanded by user.||It is commanded by processor.|
|It converts user friendly instruction into machine friendly.||It converts machine’s instructions to user intelligible.|
|It takes the data from the user and sends it to the processor for execution.||It takes the processed data from the processor and sends it back to the user.|
|It helps the computer is accepting the data.||It helps the computer is displaying the data.|
|The design of input devices are more complex.||The design of output devices are less complex.|
|Ex: Keyboard, Image Scanner, Microphone, Pointing device, Graphics tablet, Joystick.||Ex: Monitor, Printers, Plotters, Projector, Speakers.|
