A microcontroller (MCU) is a small computer on a single integrated circuit (IC) containing a memory, processor core, and programmable I/O peripherals. MCUs are designed for embedded applications unlike the microprocessors used in PCs or other general purpose applications involving various discrete chips. An MCU is an independent system with memory and a processor that can be used as an embedded system. Most programmable MCUs are embedded in other consumer products such as automobiles, cellphones, and household appliances. MCUs are sometimes also referred as embedded controllers.
