  • Read and execute the instructions.
  • Processing speed depends upon the size of register.
  • Some common registers are
  1. Instruction Register (IR) Stack Register (SR)
  2. Memory Address Register (MAR) Program Counter (PC)
  3. Memory Buffer Register (MBR)

Instruction Register (IR):

Holds an instruction that is being executed.

Stack Register (SR):

It is a part of CPU, in which data is store and retrieved.

Memory Address Register (MAR):

Holds the address of the active memory location.

Program Counter (PC):

Holds the memory address of the instruction that is next to be executed.

Memory Buffer Register (MBR):

Holds data on its way to and from memory.
