  39. 39. Central Processing Unit (CPU) - is the most important hardware, called the brain of the computer system. It has 3 major sub-units: 1. ALU (Arithmetic Logic Unit) – is required for arithmetic and comparison operation. 2. Control Unit (CU) 3. Memory Unit (MU) – works closely with the CPU. It stores the data temporarily. The smallest measuring unit of memory is Bit (Binary Digit -0, 1).
