MICROPROCESSOR

‡ COMPUTER HARDWARE & NETWORKING
‡ Microprocessor is a vlic. It is a single chip CPU. It is an electronic component integrated with thousands and millions of transistors for performing arithmetic and logic operations. ‡ The CPU is made of two units namely the Arithmetic and Logic Unit and the Control Unit ‡ The Arithmetic and Logic Unit (ALU) is used for performing Arithmetic and logic operations ‡ The Arithmetic operations are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

‡ COMPUTER HARDWARE & NETWORKING ‡ Bus:- Bus are the conductor lines which are use to carry data, or voltage. This is a bus that connects all the internal computer components to the CPU and main memory. ‡ ‡ 1. Data Bus ‡ 2. Address Bus ‡ 3. Control Bus

‡ COMPUTER HARDWARE & NETWORKING ‡ Data Bus:- the data bus are use to carry data from one part to another in a pc. The processing speed of a computer in depend on data bus. ‡ Address Bus:- A collection of wires connecting the CPU with main memory that is used to identify particular locations (addresses) in main memory. The width of the address bus (that is, the number of wires) determines how many unique memory locations can be addressed.

Control Bus :-These are the special signal, which are generate by microprocessor to control peripheral devices we can use the example of post in post(Power on self test) All hardware devices are check by microprocessor, this control signal are carry by microprocessor.
