A microprocessor is basically a computer processor embedded on a microchip or an integrated circuit. The first microprocessor was made in 1970. Old microprocessors were used in electronic calculators. These microprocessors had limited capacity and there were other performance constraints. The capacity increased rapidly with time and the size was greatly reduced.
Many advancements have been made in microprocessor technology in the past 20 years. One significant advancement was made in the design from 8-bit to 12-bit to 16-bit to 32-bit to 64-bit. Microprocessors have numerous applications in the fields of digital communications and robotics. Learn more about how microprocessors work, applications, modes and more information in this guide.
