Explain common characteristic s of a CPU and how they effect performance. EXPERT: State the purpose of embedded systems and give examples. Internal Parts The processor Main memory (RAM, ROM, EEPROM) I/O controllers Buses External Parts Peripherals I/O Devices / I/O Ports Secondary Storage Definitions Objectiv es BEGINNER: Describe the purpose and state the function of a CPU. ADVANCED: Explain common characteristic s of a CPU and how they effect performance.

EXPERT: State the purpose of embedded systems and give examples. Processor The brains of the computer Carries out instructions (Executes Instructions) Processes Data Retrieves Data/Instructions from Main Memory (Fetch) Stores Data into Main Memory once Executed Main Memory - RAM Holds Data and Instructions that are currently in use by the processor Located on the Motherboard Directly Accessible by the processor All data/instructions are lost once power is turned off Definitions Objectiv es BEGINNER: Describe the purpose and state the function of a CPU. ADVANCED: Explain common characteristic s of a CPU and how they effect performance. EXPERT: State the purpose of

embedded systems and give examples. Main Memory - ROM Instructions are permanently etched onto a ROM Chip When power is turned off instructions still remain on the ROM chip. Bootstrap Loader is held in ROM Gives the instructions to start up the Operating System Main Memory - EEPROM EEPROM Electronically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory E.g. Sim cards / Flash Memory Instructions/Data can be erased electronically and replaced Definitions Objectiv es BEGINNER: Describe the purpose and state the function of a CPU. ADVANCED: Explain common characteristic s of a CPU and how they effect performance. EXPERT: State the purpose of embedded systems and give

examples. I/O Controllers These are used to allow an interface between a hardware device external to the motherboard (e.g. a Keyboard) and the Processor itself. I/O controllers are used for: Keyboard, Mouse, Disk Drive, VDU System Busses A bus is a set of parallel wires connecting two or more independent components of a computer system in order to pass signals between them. The The The The System is split into three separate busses: data bus address bus control bus Definitions Objectiv es BEGINNER: Describe the purpose and state the function of a CPU. ADVANCED: Explain common characteristic s of a CPU and how they effect performance. EXPERT: State the purpose of

embedded systems and give examples. Address Bus Carries addresses from the Processor to main memory or other I/O devices It is one direction (Uni-Directional) The processor generates an address All data/Instructions are returned on the Data Bus Data Bus Carries Data/Instructions from Main Memory to the Processor (or from other secondary storage devices) to the processor. Bi-Directional (two way) Data can be read/written Definitions Objectiv es BEGINNER: Describe the purpose and state the function of a CPU. ADVANCED: Explain common characteristic s of a CPU and how they effect performance. EXPERT: State the purpose of embedded systems and give examples.

Control Bus Control signals are sent along the control bus E.g. Memory Read, Memory Write This instructs which was data will be travelling to/from memory. Peripherals Peripherals are any devices that are not directly connected to the CPU E.g. mouse, keyboard, printer, hard disk drive, cd-rom drive These devices are known as I/O devices (Input/Output Devices) Definitions Objectiv es BEGINNER: Describe the purpose and state the function of a CPU. ADVANCED: Explain common characteristic s of a CPU and how they effect performance. EXPERT: State the purpose of embedded systems and give examples. I/O Ports I/O Ports allow communication from an I/O device and the motherboard (hence CPU)

Secondary Storage Used for long term storage of data and instructions Hard Disk Drive Solid State Drive Flash Memory DVD-R Blu-ray Fetch Objectiv es BEGINNER: Describe the purpose and state the function of a CPU. ADVANCED: Explain common characteristic s of a CPU and how they effect performance. EXPERT: State the purpose of embedded systems and give examples. Program counter is incremented for each instruction of the program being executed The contents of the Program Counter are put into the MAR (Memory Address Register) The address is transferred along the Address Bus to Main Memory (this address indicates which part of memory to fetch the data/instructions from The data/instruction that has been addressed is transferred back to the processor along the data

bus This is held in the Memory Data Register The instruction would then be transferred to the Current Instruction Register. Registers Objectiv es BEGINNER: Describe the purpose and state the function of a CPU. ADVANCED: Explain common characteristic s of a CPU and how they effect performance. EXPERT: State the purpose of embedded systems and give examples. Program Counter Memory Address Register Holds the location of the next instruction/data address in Main Memory The contents of the PC are copied here and then transferred along

the Address Bus Memory Data Register Current Instruction Register Once Data/Instructions are brought from the Memory Address in Main Memory they are placed in the MDR. The instructions stored in the MDR are copied here Decode/Execute Objectiv es The instruction to be decoded is held in the Current Instruction Register BEGINNER: Describe the purpose and state the function of a CPU. The instruction is split into an Op-Code and an Operand ADVANCED: Explain common characteristic s of a CPU and how they effect performance. EXPERT: State the

purpose of embedded systems and give examples. The instruction is carried out by the ALU (Arithmetic Logic Unit) ALU Accumulator Control Unit Performs arithmetic and logical operations including +, -, AND, OR Results of calculation s are placed into the Accumulat or Sends Control Signals between the different internal components: Memory Read Memory Write Hard Disk Drive Read I/O Write
