What are Microprocessors used for?
Microprocessors are at the heart of all computers.
A microprocessor is an electronic component that is used by a computer to do its work. It is a central processing unit on a single integrated circuit chip containing millions of very small components including transistors, resistors, and diodes that work together.
In short: A microprocessor is a computer processor on a microchip. It's sometimes called a logic chip.
The definition of a Microprocessor is
"an integrated circuit that contains all the functions of a central processing unit of a computer."
They execute logical and computational tasks with typical operations. Located at the heart of the computer, they are used in most electrical devices, such as cell phones, remote controls, PCs, and much more.
