|Definition:|| equipment designed for the purpose of:|
a) receiving data from an external source (such as a data input line or via a keyboard);
b) performing some processing functions on the received data (such as computation, data transformation or recording, filing, sorting, storage, transfer of data);
c) providing a data output (either to other equipment or by the reproduction of data or images)
NOTE – This definition includes electrical or electronic units or systems which predominantly generate a multiplicity of periodic binary pulsed electrical or electronic waveforms and are designed to perform data processing functions such as word processing, electronic computation, data transformation, recording, filing, sorting, storage, retrieval and transfer, and reproduction of data as images.
