Abstract

The portion of the computer that allows it to do more work than a simple computer is the microprocessor. Nowadays, modern microprocessors can perform extremely sophisticated operations in areas such as meteorology, aviation, nuclear physics and engineering, and take up much less space as well as delivering superior performance. Before selecting a particular device for an application, it is important to understand what the different options and features are and what they can mean with regard to developing the application. Microcontrollers and microprocessors are widely used in embedded systems. Though microcontrollers are preferred over microprocessors for embedded systems due to low power consumption. This work presents the general application of microprocessors and microcontrollers.
