Microprocessor and Microcontroller

Illustrate the difference between the Microprocessor and Microcontroller?




Microprocessors usually need external components to implement the program memory, ram memory and Input-output.

Intel's 8086, 8088 and 80386 are some of the illustrations of microprocessors.

Micro controllers include program memory, ram memory and the input-output resources internal to the chip.

Microchip's pic series and Atmel's AVR series are some of the illustrations of micro controllers.
