Preliminary Discussion• Integrated circuit: An electronic circuit designed to perform some function, in which the electronic components (transistors, resistors, diodes, capacitors, etc.) are miniaturized, built into a small "chip" made of silicon and interconnected through tiny strands of aluminum. More commonly referred to as "microchips", or "IC chips“• The chip found inside of a "musical" birthday card contain only a few dozen components, whereas a Pentium processor today contains over 800 million transistors! When an integrated circuit is extremely complex, it is usually known as a microprocessor.
What is a Microprocessor ? • The entire CPU with timing and control functions on a single chip is known as Microprocessor. Therefore a Microprocessor or MPU is an integrated circuit that contains many processing capabilities of a large computer.
Memory: • Rom (Read only Memory): ROM generally contains permanently stored data that cannot be changed. It can be read but not written into. The main feature of ROMs is that they are non-volatile, which means that the information stored in them is not lost when the power is removed. • Ram (Random Access Memory): RAM is memory that can be read or written to. RAM is actually read/write memory. RAM memory is volatile memory, that is, it is lost whenever the power is switched off.
Central Processing Unite: • The Central Processing unit or CPU controls the operation of the computer.
Features & Benefits: • Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0: dynamically increases the processors frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits. • Intel® HT Technology: allows each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time. • Intel® HD Graphics 3000: delivers built-in performance for casual and mainstream gaming with no extra graphics hardware needed. • Intel® Quick Sync Video: makes editing and sharing videos simple.
How to Choose the Right Processor: • How will you use your computer? • How will you enjoy photos and videos? • How will you communicate with other? • What kinds of games will you play? • Which performance you need? • How many program you want run at once time?
