Microprocessors do computations or mathematics.

Microcontrollers do a few functions to control machines. Most of the small appliances now use microcontrollers to do some sequential operations on the appliances. Such as time set, maximum temperature set, or duty cycles etc.

Please ask these questions in general discussions. This is a chop shop column, which is motherboard modifications, or Linux disection, or Product design philosophies. Semiconductor is only discussed to save the cpu from abuse.
