2 Chapter4 2/28 Overview Describe System Unit Components Identify Motherboard Components Describe Processor Functions Explain Computer Data Representation Differentiate Memory Types Differentiate Ports & Connectors

3 Chapter4 3/28 System Unit Case Containing Electronic Components

4 Chapter4 4/28 Common Components Processor Memory Adapter Cards Video Sound Modem Network Ports Drive Bays Power Supply

5 Chapter4 5/28 Motherboard Main Circuit Board in System Unit Contains Processor Memory Adapter Cards Chips Integrated Circuits

6 Chapter4 6/28 Processor Central Processing Unit (CPU) Interprets & Executes Basic Instructions Components Control Unit Directs & Coordinates Operations Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) Arithmetic (+-*/) Comparison (=<>) Logical (and or not)

7 Chapter4 7/28 Processor System Clock Controls Timing of All Operations Generates Ticks Regular Electronic Pulses Smallest Unit of Time Recognized by a Device

8 Chapter4 8/28 Processor System Clock Processor Speed Measured by Ticks/Second MHz – One Million Ticks/Second Type 100 Words/Minute = 8 Characters/Second 8088 Processor @ 4.77 MHz Character ► 50,000 Other Tasks ► Character GHz – One Billion Ticks per Second

9 Chapter4 9/28 Processor Machine Cycle Fetch Obtain Instruction From Memory Decode Translate Instruction to Commands Execute Carry Out Command Store Write Result to Memory CPU Executes 1-3+ Cycles per Tick

10 Chapter4 10/28 Processor Machine Cycle Example 1) Fetch instruction: “Get number at address 123456” 2) Decode instruction 3) Execute: ALU finds the number (which is 5) 4) Store: The number ‘5’ is stored in a register 5 – 8) Repeat steps for another number (which is 6) 9) Fetch instruction: “Add number in Reg1 to Reg2” 10) Decode instruction 11) Execute: ALU adds the numbers 12) Store: The answer is stored in a register 13) Fetch instruction: “Display answer on screen” 14) Decode instruction 15) Execute: Display answer on screen

11 Chapter4 11/28 Processor Cooling Systems Heat Sink Component that Cools Processor Heat Pipe Used in Notebooks Liquid Cooling Continuous Fluid Flow Transfers Heat Away

12 Chapter4 12/28 Data Representation Binary Most Computers are Digital Recognize Two Discrete States On / Off Equivalent Numbering System Bits (Binary Digit) Two Unique Digits 0 / 1

13 Chapter4 13/28 Data Representation Byte Eight Bits Grouped Together Represent Numbers Uppercase & Lowercase Letters Punctuation Special Characters 35D35D

14 Chapter4 14/28 Data Representation Coding Systems ASCII PC EBCDIC Mainframe Unicode Other Languages

15 Chapter4 15/28 Memory One or More Chips on Motherboard Each Byte Stored in Unique Location Address Stores Three Basic Categories of Items OS & Other System Software Application Program Instructions Data Being Processed & Resulting Info

16 Chapter4 16/28 Memory Sizes

17 Chapter4 17/28 Memory RAM (Random Access Memory) Read From / Written To by Processor Volatile Content Lost When Power is Absent More = Faster Operation DRAM (Dynamic) Standard SRAM (Static) MRAM (Magnetoresistive)

18 Chapter4 18/28 Memory Location Memory Resides on Small Circuit Board Memory Module Memory Slots Hold Memory Modules On Motherboard

19 Chapter4 19/28 Memory System Requirements Based on Types of Applications Used Cache Speeds Computer Processes Stores Frequently Used Instructions & Data

20 Chapter4 20/28 Memory ROM (Read Only Memory) Stores Permanent Data & Instructions Non-volatile Types Firmware – Permanently Written Data BIOS (Basic Input / Output System) Sequence of Instructions to Start Computer PROM – Blank EEPROM – Electrically Erasable PROM
