CS6412 Microprocessor and Microcontroller Lab


A Microprocessor incorporates the functions of a computer's central processing unit (CPU) on a single integrated circuit (IC), or at most a few integrated circuits. It is a multipurpose, programmable device that accepts digital data as input, processes it according to instructions stored in its memory, and provides results as output. It is an example of sequential digital logic, as it has internal memory. Microprocessors operate on numbers and symbols represented in the binary numeral system.
The advent of low-cost computers on integrated circuits has transformed modern society. General-purpose microprocessors in personal computers are used for computation, text editing, multimedia display, and communication over the Internet. Many more microprocessors are part of embedded systems, providing digital control of a myriad of objects from appliances to automobiles to cellular phones and industrial process control.

Scope of Microprocessor

Microprocessor is a programmable chip that serves the purpose of several components working as a system on the PCB. the ports of the microprocessor are used to simultaneously provide the data and address. it was the basic building block of the third generation computers that makes them compact and versatile. the further advancements in this field makes the communication equipments steek. that shows the need of microprocessor.
