Intel’s four-bit 4004 made history, because it was a complete microprocessor on a single chip at a time when processor modules for minicomputers filled multiple circuit boards. Over the past three decades, the complexity and throughput of microprocessors has increased dramatically as semiconductor technology has improved by leaps and bounds. Hundreds of microprocessors have…
