Functional Components

A computer system contains many different objects such as a CPU, memory, disks, etc. These must all be connected for the system to function.  The wires used to connect the components are called buses. We’ll look briefly at  the connections within a computer system and how data is transferred between the components.  The internal components of the CPU will be described shortly. Remember that the descriptions are concerned with real, physical things such as boards, chips and cables.
