What Is A Microprocessor ?  

Microprocessors are small chips that carry out all the roles of a CPU. A microprocessor normally remains a consistent part of the computer and the life of the system. It is a device that allows a computer to work. It looks like a silicon chip and consisting millions of transistors.More...

Intel Microprocessor History

Intel Microprocessor History

There have been a set of microprocessors introduced till date. Intel did come up with many other micro processing chips since the beginning. Intel 4004, the first microprocessor with a single chip was introduced in the year 1971 by a company known to everyone as Intel Corporation.

Before it was introduced, computers did have MSI or SSI chips. It was designed as vital part of MCS-4 by Ted Hoff and Federico Faggin. It could perform 92,000 instructions every second. The other microprocessors that followed were versions 4009 and 4008. It became the first ever commercial microprocessor, which controlled functions and instructions that were otherwise impossible to achieve.More...

Functions Of A Microprocessor

Microprocessors are small chips that carry out all the roles of CPU. It is a device that allows a computer to work. It performs in same distinct way whether incorporated on laptops or servers. The first ever microprocessor was introduced by Intel in the year 1971. The processor was called Intel4004 and carried out most simple operations related to mathematics.

It is the size of a chip which contains billions of various transistors. The year after 1970s saw 4 bit and 8 bit microprocessors. They have the power to calculate mathematical operations using algorithms. Due to floating point processors, the microprocessors can conduct any operation or computation accurately at the earliest.More...

Microprocessors are small chips that carry out all the functions of a CPU. A microprocessor normally remains a consistent element of the computer and the life of the system. It is a device that allows a computer to work. It looks like a silicon chip and consisting millions of transistors.

The three companies that manufacture microprocessors are Intel, AMD and VIA. Intel-4004, the first microprocessor with single-chip, was introduced in the year 1971 by a company known to everyone as Intel Corporation. Before the invention of these microprocessors, computers had MSI and SSI chips.More...
