The portion of the processor that interprets program instructions, directs internal operations, and directs the flow of input/output to or from RAM.
The Control Unit is one of the most important parts of the microprocessor because it is in charge of the entire process. Based on instructions from the Decode Unit, it creates control signals that tell the Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) and the Registers how to operate, what to operate on, and what to do with the result. The Control Unit makes sure everything happens in the right place at the right time.
CPU component that coordinates the activities of other components.
part of the CPU that controls the Machine Cycle
A component of the central processing unit that obtains program instructions and sends signals to carry out these instructions.
A part of the Central Processing Unit (CPU) that regulates the Execution Unit (EU) and oversees the instruction cycle.
a central part of a simultaneous interpretation conference system configuration
That part of a computer which provides decoding of program instructions and the necessary timing and control signals for the execution of such instructions.
The part of the CPU that coordinates its operations.
That part of the computer which accesses instructions in sequence, interprets them and then directs their implementation.
Component of the CPU that directs and coordinates most of the operations in the computer, interpreting each instruction issued by a program and then initiating the appropriate action to carry out the instruction. 4.5
This is the part of the computer that controls the Machine Cycle. It takes numerous cycles to do even a simple addition of two numbers. The Machine Cycle Fetch - get an instruction from Main Memory Decode - translate it into computer commands Execute - actually process the command Store - write the result to Main Memory
That portion of hardware in the CPU that directs sequence of operations, interprets coded instructions, and initiates proper commands to other parts of the computer.
Housing for electronic operation components.
A control unit is the part of a CPU or other device that directs its operation. The outputs of the unit control the activity of the rest of the device. A control unit can be thought of as a finite state machine.
