  • The Central Processing Unit

    The Central Processing Unit Microprocessors‚ also called central processing units (CPUs)‚ are frequently described as the "brains" of a computer‚ because they act as the central control for the processing of data in personal computers (PCs) and other computers. Chipsets perform logic functions in computers based on Intel processors. Motherboards combine Intel microprocessors and chipsets to form the basic subsystem of a PC. Because it’s part of every one of your computer’s functions‚ it

  • Central Processing Unit

    A CPU processor or central processing unit controls the functions of most electronic products. The CPU accepts the input data‚ processes the information and sends it to the component that is in charge of executing the action. CPUs are also known as microprocessors and are at the center of any computer system. Although CPUs are most often thought of as a computer chip‚ they can also be found in many other electronic devices including cell phones‚ hand held devices‚ microwaves‚ television sets and toys

  • Definition Description of Central Processing Unit

    A Central Processing Unit (CPU) is a chip‚ containing a microprocessor‚ at the heart of most every modern computing electronic. A microprocessor is a small integrated circuit or chip‚ comprised of silicon and transistors‚ which interprets electrical impulses‚ performs operations on the electrical impulses‚ and sends the impulses to another device. The transistors are simple switches that turn on and off‚ allowing the electrical impulses through when on or ‘open ’. Microprocessors are very small

  • Data Processing

    1. Data Processing- is any process that a computer program does to enter data and‚ summarize‚ analyze or otherwise convert data into usable information. The process may be automated and run on a computer. It involves recording‚ analyzing‚ sorting‚ summarizing‚ calculating‚ disseminating and storing data. Because data are most useful when well-presented and actually informative‚ data-processing systems are often referred to as information systems. Nevertheless‚ the terms are roughly synonymous‚ performing

  • Digital Image Processing

    Digital signal processor [edit] Typical characteristics Digital signal processing algorithms typically require a large number of mathematical operations to be performed quickly and repetitively on a set of data. Signals (perhaps from audio or video sensors) are constantly converted from analog to digital‚ manipulated digitally‚ and then converted again to analog form‚ as diagrammed below. Many DSP applications have constraints on latency; that is‚ for the system to work‚ the DSP operation must

  • Serial And Parallel Processing

    Humans are processors of information and can process things in different ways. Serial and parallel processing are two ways. Serial is the way the mind processes things sequentially‚ one thing at a time. For example‚ when reading a book‚ you cannot process all the words in one glance or even reading the sentences of this forum. Instead‚ you have read in a sequence‚ from left to right and process each word. Parallel is when the mind processes things simultaneously‚ more than one thing at a time (Schmidt
