MICROPROCESSORSMicroprocessors are simply complex digital circuits that can be thought of as miniature computers. Microprocessors are typically very large scale ICs that contain thousands of gates arranged to perform specific functions. A common example of a microprocessor is found in every handheld calculator. The calculator's microprocessor performs all the necessary functions for the calculator's operation. In effect, the microprocessor is a computer designed for one function, to calculate numbers.All microprocessors are made up of at least three basic elements: the central processing unit (CPU), the arithmetic logic unit (ALU), and a memory. The CPU is the primary control element of the microprocessor. The CPU processes and directs dat…
