Microprocessors are ubiquitous in modern technology, yet their inner workings can be difficult to understand. This paper aims to demystify microprocessors by providing a comprehensive analysis of their logic level architecture. The paper covers the process of designing a CPU from logic gates to building said an 8-bit CPU using breadboards, integrated circuits, and other electrical components. By the end of this paper, readers will have a better understanding of how microprocessors function at the most basic level.
