A float zone wafer can be used in microprocessors. Microprocessors are programmable semiconductor devices that are used to carry out instructions to process digital data or digital control over other methods.  What's great about using FZ wafers is that it has a high growth rate, which helps lessen defects, low oxygen levels, which allow the wafers to perform efficiently, and precise dopant control. In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about microprocessors.

What Are Microprocessors?

Microprocessors are made from wafers. They’re programmable semiconductor devices that are commonly used as central processing units in computer systems. Some microprocessors are made from a float zone wafer.

Why Are Microprocessors Important?

Microprocessors carry out a series of directives or steps that generally creates a program. Every microprocessor has a specific set of instructions or tasks that it can accomplish. These sets of steps or instructions are called the instruction set. Each direction does something particular. It has different conditions in terms of which data to work on and the parts of the microprocessor to utilize.

Essential Parts of a Microprocessor

  • Arithmetic and Logic Unit-this is the part where logic and arithmetic operation of the microprocessor happens.
  • Data Bus System- this is where data processing takes place.
  • Address Bus System- this part supplies the address of the memory location is entered.
  • Control Unit- this part is used for managing the program implementation of the microprocessor.
  • Decoder- this part handles the interpretation of instructions.
  • Program Counter- Pinpoints the memory address where the following instructions will come from.
  • Flags, Pointer, and Registers.

A microprocessor performs a program inputted in memory by taking the instructions or data that it requires and showing these conditions. The output of the last operation dictates how the next instruction will be executed. This means that the results of the microprocessor rely upon the direction and data supplied to it.
