A set of integrated hardware circuits, such as application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), which perform a particular function. They are commonly used in networking devices to maximize performance with minimum cost.
Two or more integrated circuits which together perform a complete processing function or functions.
chips found on the motherboard that handle memory management as well as the interfaces to the peripherals.
A chipset is a group of microchips designed to work as a unit in performing one or more related functions.
(or core logic) - two or more integrated circuits which control the interfaces between the system processor, RAM, I/O devises, and adapter cards.
A collection of integrated circuits that control data transfers as well as determining the CPU, memory, cache and bus technologies that are used on a motherboard
A chipset is the controlling center for the system bus and the bridge to the Input / Output bus. This is a part of the hardware. See inside the case.
A group of microchips that actually control the flow of information on your computer. They are the controllers for the memory, cache, hard drive, keyboard, etc.. These groups of chips direct traffic along the bus and can allow devices to talk to each other without having to go through the CPU.
A group of chips, working as a team, that control the functions and features on a motherboard. The chipset determines how much memory you can put into a motherboard and what processors you can use with it.
This term is used to describe the architecture of an integrated circuit. For ...
a group of chips that are attached to your motherboard and require their own drivers
a group of chips that manages the internal functions of a computer
a group of helper chips designed to work with a processor
an integrated set of complementary computer chips that are designed for a specific task
a relatively easy job for motherboard manufacturers
a series of semiconductors that connect a processor to other components such as memory
a set of two chips comprising of the North Bridge and South Bridge (also often written and northbridge and southbridge)
A single chip or pair of chips that integrates into the clock generator, bus controller, system timer, interrupt controller, DMA controller, and CMOS RAM/clock and keyboard controller.
A group of integrated circuits (IC's) that are designed to work as a single entity.
Term used to describe the architecture of an integrated circuit on computer mainboards.
The chipset controls the system and its capabilities. All components communicate with the processor through the chipset - it is the hub of all data transfer. The chipset uses the DMA controller and the bus controller to organize the steady flow of data that it controls. The chipset is a series of chips attached directly to the motherboard, and is usually second in size only to the processor. Chipsets are integrated (soldered onto the motherboard) and are not upgradeable without a new motherboard.
A number of integrated circuits which carry out related tasks. This is the name often given to the core functionality of a motherboard, or to the chip that powers a graphics card.
A chipset is a group of integrated circuits (microchips) that can be used together to serve a single function and are therefore manufactured and sold as a unit. The most common chipset reference is the input/output control chips of a motherboard.
The chips that control the main functions and features of the motherboard. The chipset determines how much memory you can put into the board, what processor you can use, whether you can use AGP or PCI-E. This is why even if a part fits, it is not always compatible.
A number of integrated circuits designed to perform one or more related functions.
A chipset is a pair or group of microchips which are designed to work together and are sold as a unit.
A standard set by different manufacturers to the system motherboard defining its properties and limitations. The different chipsets include VIA, Intel, SIS etc
A chipset refers to the chips that control the functions and features on amotherboard, such as how much memory the motherboard will take and whatprocessors are compatible.
Two or more chips designed to perfonn as a unit for one or more functions.
A set of chips on a computer's motherboard that handles a PC's primary functions. It's what connects key components to the rest of the motherboardâ€”and to the rest of your computer. Think of chipset as your computer's traffic hub.
It is a group of integrated circuits that can be used together to serve a single function and are therefore manufactured and sold as a unit. For example, one chipset might combine all the microchips needed to serve as the communications controller between a processor and memory and other devices in a computer.
A group of microchips designed to work and sold as a unit in performing one or more related functions. The chipset on a graphics card may be made by a company that is different from the company that is manufacturing the board itself.
The chipset generally consists of two VLSI chips that interface the CPU to the outside world on any motherboard or SBC. In a typical implementation the North Bridge chip is connected directly to the CPU via the Front Side Bus and provides an interface to memory and other high speed devices. The South Bridge is connected in turn to the North Bridge and provides an interface to PCI bus and other peripherals.
Microchips that support the CPU. The chipset usually contains several controllers that govern how information travels between the processor and other components.
A collection of microchips that allow hardware peripherals in PCI and ISA buses to communicate without using the CPU. This frees processing time in the CPU to perform other tasks.
A group of integrated circuits that are designed to work together for some specific function.
A chipset is a group of integrated circuits ("chips") that are designed to work together, and are usually marketed as a single product. In computing, the term chipset is commonly used to refer to the specialized motherboard chips on a computer or expansion card. When discussing personal computers (PCs) based on recent Intel Pentium-class systems, the term "chipset" often refers to the two main motherboard chips: northbridge and southbridge.
