dc.description.abstractFrom sophisticated telecommunication satellites to digital watches and miniaturized calculators each can afford, micro-electronics has, in its 30 years of history invaded every area of human activity. The accelerated rate and the increasing innovative vitality of this new technology is unprecedented in modern times. With the nuclear energy and the conquest of space, informatics is the most fundamental innovation of the XX century. It has allowed all sciences to develop at such a speed that it has become the privileged tool of a new social organization and the basis of modern culture. Though it is not the purpose of this paper to deal at length with the various types of computer technology, we can try to define a microprocessor and a microcomputer for better understanding. A microprocessor is the data processing part of a microcomputer, based on one or more "Large Scale Integrated" (LSI) circuits and forming a functionally complete entity comprising an arithmetic unit, registers and a control unit.en
