microprocessor incorporates most or all of the functions of a central processing unit (CPU) on a single integrated
circuit (IC).  The first microprocessors emerged in the early 1970s and were used for electronic calculators,
using Binary-coded decimal (BCD) arithmetic on 4-bit words. Other embedded uses of 4- and 8-bit microprocessors,
such as terminals, printers, various kinds of automation etc, followed rather quickly. Affordable 8-bit microprocessors
with 16-bit addressing also led to the first general purpose microcomputers in the mid-1970s.
