Answer
# 11
microprocessor is the device that does not have memory
(internal),in micontroller it has internal memory and has
connected directly to pheripheral device.

Answer
# 15
Microcontroller is a chip contains CPU,ROM, RAM,I/O ports and Serial communication. We can directly interface digital and analog signal for processing. But it is not the case in the microprocessor.

microcontroller inherits the micro processor so
microcontroller can be made out of microprocessor but not
microprocessor

Answer
# 17
A microcontroller is a specialized form of microprocessor
that is designed to be self-sufficient and cost-effective,
where a microprocessor is typically designed to be general
purpose (the kind used in a PC).
The difference is that microcontroller incorporates features
of microprocessor(CPU,ALU,Registers)along with the presence
of added features like presence of RAM,ROM,I\O ports,counter
etc.Here microcontroller control the operation of machine
using fixed programme stored in Rom that doesn't change with
lifetime.

  Re: What is the difference between microprocessor and microcontroller?
Answer
# 18
Microprocessor required some external connections such as
RAM,ROM,i/o ports, timmer,counter etc
Where as in microcontroller having a inbuilt memory such as
RAM,ROM,i/o ports,timmer,counter etc such connections are
inbuilt.
The basic difference is we can directly interphasing the ic
with the uses of microcontroller,
But in microprocessor it is impossible to interphasing the
Ic directly to any other ports

  Re: What is the difference between microprocessor and microcontroller?
Answer
# 20
We can say that a Microprocessor is a part of a
microcontroller since a microcontroller as a whole consists
of ram,Ic's, memory storage,a computing unit(may be a
microprocessor) such that it can directly give us the
results while a microprocessor is just a basic processing
unit and we need to connect other components like
RAM's,IC's and other devices to it first before processing
something in it.
