A storage area commonly associated with fast-access storage, capable of storing a specified amount of data such as a bit or address.
A special circuit in a CPU, such as an accumulator or program counter that can either hold a value or perform some arithmetical or logical operation.
Special memory storage location.
A memory word or area for temporary storage of data used within arithmetical, logical, or transferal functions.
a general term used to describe a location in computer memory that holds information so that it can be used for arithmetic or logical operations, address calculaton or for other purposes
an arithmetic storage class for troff with a one or two character name
a special, high-speed storage facility located separately from main memory, usually on the processor chip
A small storage unit in a processor that stores the values which are currently being processed. Registers can be 16, 32, or 64-bit wide depending on what type of data they are made to store. Data must be stored in registers for the processor to be able to perform calculations on them.
n. A part of internal storage having a specified storage capacity and usually intended for a specific purpose.
Place where CPU stores numbers while performing calculations
A special, high speed storage area within a CPU. All data being processed by the CPU must be placed here before it can be processed. CPUs are sometimes categorized by the size of the registers. A 32-bit CPU has a register that is 32-Bits wide.
A CPU contains registers that it uses for temporary storage of data. You can think of a register as a kind of L0 cache. If the processor has to add the...
A physical device which accepts and stores data. In contrast to an accumulator (q.v.), when a new number is sent to a register it overwrites whatever number is already there. The word register also loosely applies to units in the central processor of a computer in which arithmetic and temporary storage are both performed.
Temporary storage space on the CPU that can be accessed very quickly.
A storage device capable of receiving and holding a number of digits.
A storage device with a specific capacity, such as a bit, byte or word.
A storage location in a PLC. The ExperTune PID Tuner needs to know certain register addresses to tune loops in PLCs.
A permanent location in store set aside for the temporary storage of data.
A device in the CPU for the temporary storage of one or more words to facilitate arithmetical, logical, or transfer operations.
A byte or word of storage which exists within the CPU proper. Registers directly interface to the ALU and other microprocessor functionality.
