35. Pearson Edexcel GCSE (1CP2) Topic 3A Von Neumann architecture

This video explores the first computers that had stored programs in the same memory space as the data required for them. This is known as the von Neumann architecture and is still the foundation principle on which most computers are still built today. We take the lid off a central processing unit and explain the key components including the alu, clock, busses and the control unit.
