History and Flow: 1990-1991 By Danielle Johnson Period 5
The Flow The flow of data in the computer goes through a simple process. It goes into a microprocessor, and it reads the information through binary code (digital information). There are millions of tiny switches called transistors. There are three basic functions in a microprocessor: fetch, decode, and execute. Fetch retrieves and feeds information into the microprocessor. It sends the information to decode, which figures out what operations need to be done. Finally, execute performs the accusations by reading the binary code.
