An application-specific instruction set processor (ASIP) is a component used in system-on-a-chip design.
A central processing unit (CPU) is the electronic circuitry within a computer that carries out the instructions of a computer program by performing the basic arithmetic, logical, control and input/output (I/O) operations specified by the instructions.
In electronics, a chip carrier is one of several kinds of surface mount technology packages for integrated circuits (commonly called "chips").
A coprocessor is a computer processor used to supplement the functions of the primary processor (the CPU).
Data processing most often refers to Electronic data processing, computer processes that convert data into information or knowledge.
A data processing system is a combination of machines, people, and processes that for a set of inputs produces a defined set of outputs.
A die (pronunciation: /daɪ/) in the context of integrated circuits is a small block of semiconducting material, on which a given functional circuit is fabricated.
A digital signal processor (DSP) is a specialized microprocessor (or a SIP block), with its architecture optimized for the operational needs of digital signal processing.
A document processor is a computer application that superficially resembles a word processor—but emphasizes the visual layout of the document's components, above creation and formatting of text.
A firewood processor is a machine designed to cut and split firewood with minimal manual handling of the logs.
A floating-point unit (FPU, colloquially a math coprocessor) is a part of a computer system specially designed to carry out operations on floating point numbers.
A food processor is a kitchen appliance used to facilitate repetitive tasks in the preparation of food.
A front end processor (FEP), or a communications processor, is a small-sized computer which interfaces to the host computer a number of networks, such as SNA, or a number of peripheral devices, such as terminals, disk units, printers and tape units.
A graphics processing unit (GPU) is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display device.
An image processor, image processing engine, also called media processor, is a specialized digital signal processor (DSP) used for image processing in digital cameras, or other devices.
An information processor or information processing system, as its name suggests, is a system (be it electrical, mechanical or biological) which takes information (a sequence of enumerated symbols or states) in one form and processes (transforms) it into another form, e.g. to statistics, by an algorithmic process.
An information system (IS) is an organized system for the collection, organization, storage and communication of information.
A microprocessor is a computer processor that incorporates the functions of a central processing unit on a single integrated circuit (IC), or at most a few integrated circuits.
A multi-core processor is a single computing component with two or more independent processing units called cores, which read and execute program instructions.
A network processor is an integrated circuit which has a feature set specifically targeted at the networking application domain.
A physics processing unit (PPU) is a dedicated microprocessor designed to handle the calculations of physics, especially in the physics engine of video games.
A process is a set of activities that interact to achieve a result.
In computing, a processor or processing unit is an electronic circuit which performs operations on some external data source, usually memory or some other data stream.
A word processor is a computer program or device that provides for input, editing, formatting and output of text, often plus other features.
