Chapter 1 Exercise Solutions E1.1 The processor is one of the major parts in a computer system. A processor consists of a register file, an arithmetic logic unit, and the control unit. E1.2 The processor in a large computer may consist of one or several printed circuit boards. However, the microprocessor is a processor fabricated in a single integrated circuit. E1.3 The microcontroller has everything contained in a microprocessor and also one or more of the following components that makes building a product much easier: - memory, - timer, - analog-to-digital converter, - digital-to-analog converter, - direct memory access controller, - parallel I/O interface (often called parallel port), - serial I/O interface, and - memory components controller. E1.4 8 bits E1.5 64KBytes or 65536 bytes. E1.6 A computer needs startup software to perform power-up initialization so that the computer can operate properly. The startup software must be stored in non-volatile memory so that it can become ready for execution when the power is first turned on. E1.7 MROM is a ROM memory technology that is programmed when it is manufactured. MROM is the densest and has the lowest per bit price among all ROM technologies. However, it requires masks during the fabrication process that are quite expensive.
