Processors

I am thinking about upgrading my amd processor from a dual-core 2.0GHz to a quad-core 2.3 GHz processor and i was wondering if the AM2 socket that i already have will work with a AM2+ that the processor has.P.S. also, if there are any better deals that you know please comment

processor ? Answered

Hello I need someone to check my work I want to know reason that I have explained in my post is right or wrong ? Q1. If data is 4 bit ,which alu you should have to use A . 2 bit ALU B . 4 bit ALU C 6 bit ALU D 8 bit ALU my answer . (B) 4 bit alu reason : data is 4 so I used 4 bit alu . 4 bit alu deal with 4 bit number like 0001+1010 Q2. If data is 8 bit,which data memory you should have to use ? A. data memory 8 x 256 B. data memory 4x16 my answer .A data memory 8 x 256 reason : If data is 8 bit , ALU is 8 bit so data memory should be 8 x 256 Q3.If instruction is 4 bit ,which program memory you should have to use ? A. program memory should be 4x16 bit B. program memory should be 8x256 bit C program memory should be 6x64 bit my answer A . program memory should be 4x16 bit reason : Instruction are 4 bits so program memory should be 4x16 bit Q 4. If we have 4 to 16 Instruction decoder , how many instruction it can decode ? A. 8 instruction B. 16 instruction C. 256 instruction my answer (B) 16 instruction reason : 4 control word can decode 16 instruction Q5. Why Program counter is 4 bit ? A. 4 bit program counter can address 16 instructions B 8 bit program counter can address 256 instructions C.16bit 4 bit program counter can address around 6500 instructions my answer. A because 4 bit program counter can address 16 instructions please checkout my work ?

64 Bit Processors? Answered

Hiya! Well, looks like I got an old laptop, but the thing is.... it doesn't work. Dell Inspiron 8500/8600 series. It won't boot into Windows XP except in safe mode. Anyway, I was thinking of putting Ubuntu 10.10 on it and remaking it into an actually usable machine. Good idea, right?  Well.... the thing is I don't know much about these older processors, so my question is: Are any of these 64 bit processors? Or are they just 32 bit? Intel® Mobile Pentium® 4M Intel® Mobile Pentium® M I want to install the appropriate type of Ubuntu 10.10, 32 bit or 64 bit. Its just that the processor needs to be compatible... Thanks!

Finding Risc processors

Hi all, I've spent a great deal of time reading up on microprocessors so I can get involved with such an activity. However, I have found great difficulties in finding a high performance RISC processor. Being in the UK, I can only find one or two providers with a limited range of processors, and that isn't just RISC ones. I also get a little swamped looking at manufacturer's websites. It's very strange they all seem to boast an architecture with XYZ Mhz of max performance, but on their spec tables there is no processor with this maxed figure shown and a lot of entries /fields are empty making 99% of their processors unknown in spec. Highly annoy and useless. I'm not looking for anything special in regards to added features to the processor (I find most of it unnecessary and as a means to charge more money, apologizes for my ignorance in this;)), just a basic chip that can process a lot (thus higher Mhz) is all im after. lower power consumption are a great/big bonus for me though. If anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be great. I've found many processors (for example, arm cortex-a by sounds of things is perfect: Over 1ghz of performance. Only problem no one seems to be making them; to the public like us anyway. Looking for microcontrollers seems to be quite a difficult task, if anyone has resources, sites or retailer /suppliers (UK for me, but feel free to post other countries for other user's benefit) or anything that would help it would be appreciated. I dont want you to do my dirty work, just guide me in the right direction. On another subject, at least with arm processors I've read the speed rating (for example 500mhz), if you x3 it'll give the "real speed" due to that 3 phase of processing it does. making 500mhz more like <1.5ghz. of course, it isn't exactly x3, the point im making the processing performance is better due to the 3 phases. thank you for your time.

correct materials to make, or how to make, or if exists usb camera to rca vid out?

It seems i cannot find it anywhere but it is a usb camera to rca out processor chip, what you do is, you plug the power in via 5 volt ac adapter, bigger webcams require more current, 5 volt cause that is usb standard voltage, and for simplicity, then you plug the chip into the computer and continue on loading the camera driver files onto the memory chip in the board, once done, unplug from computer, plug in camera in the camera port and then rca video cable to the tv. now the only problem is figuring out how to make it, i have no idea how or what type of processor chips to use, let alone the tools to make them, if they are available somewhere i'd love to know where, if not if someone could make it for me. i someone could make it for me, my email is bluefunnymen@yahoo.com the most basic layout is the picture of this chip, there are no audio outs on this chip but there is an audio processor on it, i dont really much care wether or not it has audio

Dropbox application in background process on OpenWRT processor of my Arduino Yun.

Hello everybody, Simple question: does the Arduino YUN support the same DROPBOX functionalities as my laptop? Basically, I need to download data from the SD card of my Arduino Yun to my application server. But the internet connection of my Arduino is not very stable. How I want it to work: 1.    I have a sketch that writes data on a TXT file to my SD card every 10 minutes 2.    I want to install Dropbox on my Arduino Yun 3.    Then, whenever the Yun is connected, it will synchronize all the files from the SD Card with my Dropbox folder on my server. That would happen (I guess) in the background, without my Arduino needing to run a sketch. To do that, I think I need drobox to run ‘in the background’ on my Arduino microprocessor. Did anyone do this before? Thanks. What does NOT work: Initially, I used the "LogToDropbox" sketch inserted in the "Datalogging to Dropbox with Arduino Yun" tutorial at the following link: https://www.instructables.com/id/Datalogging-to-Dropbox-with-Arduino-Yun/ in order to ‘actively’ upload files to my Dropbox app console from my SD card with an internet connection. But if , my Arduino Yun is losing the internet connection, it is impossible to upload the files created during the downtime to my Dropbox app console. These files are stored on the SD card plugged on the Yun during this time interval, but not synchronized.

I want the Processor to start a timing sequence once a start button is pushed. I want the processor to then activate a voice saying, 'Touch, Pause....Engage' Much like you hear the ref saying in professtional rugby. Once the word 'engage is said by the processor through a speaker or buzzer, a timing sequence would start, and ending when the player makes contact with the pads on the scrum sled. This conact will bge made by limit switches feediong back into the processor ending the sequence. I have attached a PDF of the sled design. Can Anyone help me with the programming!?

Would it be worth it to buy a new computer?

I have a HP Pavilion Slimline at 2.5GHz Dual-Core processor. It's using a Radeon 7750, a DVD RW CD RW optical drive, and a 286GB I think it is solid state hard drive. It's 2009 with an intel pentium processor and Windows 7 operating system. It has 3 USB 2.0 ports that are broken but with a 4 usb 2.0 port hub and 3GB of RAM. I would like to know if it would be worth it buying a new computer OR if it would be better buying an Intel i7 processor (3rd or 4th gen) and installing it manually. What are some problems I could face with installing one manually? I've seen processors that have Intel HD 4000 graphics in it already without a graphics card, would that interfere with my Radeon 7750? Could I fix that? Would it be worth buying a new gaming computer or would it be better buying an intel i7 processor at 3rd or 4th generation? If I were to buy a computer, I would buy one of the following: http://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-HP-Pavilion-HPE-H8-1360T-PC-i7-3770-3-4GHz-1TB-Windows-7-Desktop-/111163226377?pt=Desktop_PCs&hash;=item19e1d83909 http://www.ebay.com/itm/CyberpowerPC-AMD-FX-Series-8GB-DDR3-2TB-HDD-Capacity-Desktop-PC-Windows-8-64-Bit-/290968920890 http://www.ebay.com/itm/CyberpowerPC-AMD-FX-Series-8GB-DDR3-1TB-HDD-Capacity-Desktop-PC-Windows-8-64-Bit-/290971505030 Or something that is below $720 and is at least quad core i7 or at least hex core AMD. I would much prefer Intel i7 though. And I would need at least my Radeon 7750 or better. I only use Windows 7, not Windows 8 so if it comes with 8 I will install 7. If I buy an i7 processor and install it into my current computer, what processor would be compatible with my computer? LASTLY: I will pay no more than $350 for the i7 processor. Thanks for reading!

Hi all -- I have been programming all kinds of things all my life, but I have never had a chance to build a program that responds to audio input.  Suddenly: Dancing Baby Groot.  I have a great idea for an algorithm for making a very clever and funky Dancing Baby Groot using Raspberry Pi or Arduino -- if I can figure out how to get the processor to "listen" to audio input. How would I get one of those processors (or any processor) to "listen" to the mic and translate it into either digital or analog data which one could then plunder to figure out the tempo and beat in order to get Baby Groot to Dance?  I am 100% sure I can do the plundering (because it works on digital files) if I can get the processor to "listen" to the mic and create a file of numbers which represent the music being played. Any suggestions?
