9IPT: CPU Components

posted Jun 25, 2012, 6:21 PM by Eddie Woo
It doesn't get any more technical than this! Today we'll be looking at the different components of a CPU in detail, and what each does - particularly, how they play a role in the "fetch-execute cycle". Please complete the following tasks:
  1. Distinguish between 'logical' components and 'physical' components.
  2. Draw a diagram showing the basic parts of a CPU, and briefly describe each component.
  3. Outline the steps in the fetch-execute cycle, and identify where each step occurs within the CPU.
