Textbook Assignment: Central Processing Units and Buses, chapter 5, pages 5-24 through 5-29; and
Computer Memories, chapter 6, pages 6-1 through 6-20.
The buses in a computer are controlled by (a) what
functional area and (b) what type of
communication path is used?
1. (a) CPU
2. (a) CPU
3. (a) Memory
4. (a) Memory

transferred over buses except which type?
The preferred method of transfer for
data/information between system components is
which of the following?
1. Control bus
2. Common data bus
3. Operand bus
4. Address bus
What IEEE standard is used for a simple 32-bit
A. Control bus
B. Address bus
C. Data bus
D. Instruction (I) bus
E. Operand (C) bus
F. I/O mem bus or IOC bus
G. Time multiplexed bus
H. DMI bus
IN ANSWERING QUESTIONS 6-5 THROUGH 6-11,
REFER TO FIGURE 6-A. SELECT THE NAME(S)
OF THE BUS OR BUSES THAT IS/ARE DESCRIBED
IN EACH QUESTION.
Has all the signals necessary to define any of the
possible memory address locations within the
computer or a module.
Can be used to transfer instructions from memory
to the CPU.
3. C only
4. Both C and D
Allows communication between the CPU and
memory or the CPU and the IOC.
