What are the four main parts of all computer systems and briefly describe their function?
Arithmetic Logic Unit - perform calculations and logic functions Memory Unit - store data and instructions Control Unit - fetch instructions, decode instructions, and control the other units as requested by the instructions Input/Output Unit(s) - move data and instructions into and out of the computer

What is the most important things a CPU performs?
sequencing instructions fetching instructions caching instructions (optional) decoding instructions dispatching decoded instructions to execution units reading data caching data (optional) executing arithmetic instructions executing logic instructions executing flow control instructions executing special instructions writing data managing input/output handling interrupts and exceptions

Internal parts of a computer and what they do?
Arithmetic Logic Unit - performs arithmetic on numbers, logic functions, and manipulates symbols and strings of symbols. Control Unit - fetches and decodes instructions, controls operation of other units to execute the decoded instructions. Memory Unit - stores instructions, numbers, logical data, symbols, etc. Input/Output Unit(s) - moves instructions, numbers, logical data, symbols, etc. to and from the computer and devices outside it.

Asked in Computer Hardware
Where the instruction execution happens?
Different parts of instruction execution happen in different places: Control Unit - fetches, decodes, and distributes decoded instructions to other units. Arithmetic Logic Unit - performs arithmetic and logic instructions on command from Control Unit. Input/Output Unit(s) - performs input/output instructions on command from Control Unit. Memory Unit - stores instructions and data, transfers them to/from other units on command from Control Unit.
What is the full form of ALU?
What are necessary properties of RISC CPUs?
a "reduced" instruction set, consisting only of the instructions most commonly generated by compilers all arithmetic and logic instructions operate only register to register using an internal register set only basic arithmetic and logic operations are built in, others handled in software all memory access instructions are simple register load or store instructions only one memory access mode built in, others handled in software instructions always aligned whole words (no short or unaligned instructions) significant degree of pipeline parallelism in the hardware to optimize hardware efficiency etc.
Asked in Microprocessors
A basic set of commands permanently built into the CPU chip?
The instruction set is the list of all the instructions, and all their variations, that a processor (or in the case of a virtual machine, an interpreter) can execute. Instructions include: Arithmetic such as add and subtract Logic instructions such as and, or, and not Data instructions such as move, input, output, load, and store Control flow instructions such as goto, if ... goto, call, and return.

What are 3 things a CPU does to make a computer work properly?
The CPU must: fetch instructions from memory decode instructions read/write data from/to memory control the various other parts of the computer (e.g. I/O) as specified by those instructions perform arithmetic and logic operations as specified by arithmetic/logic instructions change control flow as specified by branch instructions The CPU can also (if its architecture requires these): provide internal registers/accumulators for storage of operands and results of arithmetic/logic instructions manage stack data structures (e.g. subroutine stack, operand/result stack for storage of operands and results of arithmetic/logic instructions) in memory manage queue data structures (e.g. for protected intertask messaging) in memory service external interrupts service internal exceptions perform memory management operations (e.g. page mapping, memory protection, virtual memory support) provide user, operating system, etc. mode switching protections (e.g. OS calls, task switching) flush and refill its pipelines as necessary (if the CPU implementation uses pipelines) etc.
Asked in Computers, Computer Hardware
What are the 3 parts of the processor in a computer and what are their functions?
The central processing unit is responsible for handling instructions passed to it by programs and input devices. The arithmetic logic unit handles the arithmetic and logic functions. The control unit is responsible for processing instructions that come from the computer's memory and activating the other components of the computer. The cache is the memory in which instructions are temporarily stored. Though CPUs are still commonly used, computers no longer require them to function as they are able to use multiple processors in tandem.

What are the blocks in logic gates?
The blocks in a logic gate depends on the logic family we use. A logic gate is designed using a specific logic family. The logic families can be DTL, TTL, CMOS etc. The blocks are different for different logic families. The various blocks in various logic families are: Diode logic: diodes and resistors DTL logic : diodes and resistors TTL logic : transistors and resistors NMOS logic: only NMOS FETs PMOS logic: Only PMOS FETs CMOS logic: Both NMOS and PMOS FETs BiCMOS Logic: both transistors and FETs.
