Microprocessor  
 
 

Microprocessor is a computer processor which contains an integrated-circuit chip and a processor with memory and associated circuits. Microprocessor is referred to as the brain of the personal computer, and is responsible for the processing of the instructions which make up computer software. Microprocessor houses the central processing unit, commonly referred to as the CPU. Microprocessor operations include adding, subtracting, comparing two numbers, and fetching numbers from one area to another.


Microprocessors contain tiny electronic switches called transistors, which allow digital computers to process information in the form of electrical signals. Microprocessor is designed to perform arithmetic and logic operations that make use of small number-holding areas called registers. Intel was the first company to produce a microprocessor for commercial use. Called the 4004, it was released in the early 1970s and contained slightly more than 2,000 transistors. By the early 2000s, microprocessors contained more than 5 million transistors on a single silicon chip.

Microprocessors are known as intelligent terminals used in areas such as bank ATMs, point-of-sale devices, automatic control of much industrial instrumentation, hospital equipment, programmable microwave ovens, and electronic games and Many automobiles use microprocessor-controlled ignition and fuel systems. Professionals in this field are known as Microprocessor designers who are involved in designing, implementing and testing the microprocessors.


Three basic characteristics differentiate microprocessors

1. Instruction set: The set of instructions that the microprocessor can execute.

2. Bandwidth: The number of bits processed in a single instruction.

3. Clock speed: the clock speed determines how many instructions per second the processor     can execute
