What is the full form of CPU?
Central Processing Unit is the full form of CPU and it is the main component of the computer. It is neither an input device nor output device. It takes instruction from input device and then performs arithmetic & logical operation and display on output device.
In Earlier days, CPU was clearly visible in Labs along with Input and Output devices but now a days Laptops have replaced CPU, hence it is generally not visible separately.
Central Processing Unit (CPU) = Arithmetical Logical Unit (ALU) + Control Unit (CU)
What are the components of CPU?
- Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU)
- Control Unit (CU)
- Memory Unit (MU)
