A microprocessor is a computer processor where the data processing logic and control is included on a single integrated circuit, or a small number of integrated circuits. The microprocessor contains the arithmetic, logic, and control circuitry required to perform the functions of a computer's central processing unit.What is the difference between a microprocessor and integrated circuit?
A microprocessor is an integrated circuit, but not all integrated circuits are microprocessors. Just like Professor X, the microprocessor is an intelligent piece of integrated circuits. It forms the brain of circuits that require computing capability.What is an integrated circuit (IC)?
An integrated circuit or monolithic integrated circuit (also referred to as an IC, a chip, or a microchip) is a set of electronic circuits on one small flat piece (or "chip") of semiconductor material that is normally silicon.What are the different types of ICS in microprocessor?
1 Memory circuits. Microprocessors typically have to store more data than can be held in a few registers. ... 2 Digital signal processors. A signal is an analog waveform—anything in the environment that can be captured electronically. ... 3 Application-specific ICs. ... 4 Radio-frequency ICs. ... 5 Monolithic microwave ICs. ...
