Difference Between Microprocessor and Integrated Circuit

A microprocessor is a computer processor in which data processing logic and control are done in one or more integrated circuits.

An integrated circuit (monolithic integrated circuit) is a set of electronic circuits in a single piece of semiconductor material.

Microprocessors perform the functions of a digital computer's central processing unit (CPU).

An Integrated Circuit is manufactured for a single purpose only.

A microprocessor is basically used in personal computers to perform many functions.

Integrated Circuits are used in amplifiers, video processors, computer memory, switches, and microprocessors.

The microprocessor has many benefits like Compact size, High speed, and Low power consumption.

Integrated Circuits has two main advantages over other which are cost and performance.

A microprocessor is an integrated circuit, but not all integrated circuits are microprocessors.
