Why do we use microcontroller over microprocessor in embedded systems?

This is because micro-controller (MCU) has built-in microprocessor, RAM, ROM, Serial Interfaces, Parallel Interfaces, Analog-To-Digital Converter (ADC), Digital-To-Analog Converter (DAC) and much more inside the same chip. But it really depends on our application whether to use micro-processor or micro-controller. Micro-controller is mainly used for controlling applications. Hope it helps you.

What is mean by registers in micro controller?

Registers are a special type of memory that are dedicated to micro-controllers (or CPUs). Controllers have register-memory for speed.The slowest part of any computer is the bus. The bus is the wiring that connects different components. In this case the micro-controller and main memory. While main memory and the micro-controller are both very fast, the wiring between them is slow.Should the micro-controller have to be slow to compensate for the slow wiring?The solution is to have register-memory. Memory physically part of the micro-controller that allows the controller to use it instantly. The controller can then move data from a register to RAM as soon as the bus is available.Register-memory comes from the concept of a Cash Register [1879]. A cash register is used to perform transactions and store money on it's way to a vault the same way a CPU or micro-controller stores data on its way to main memory.
