These general-purpose device pages introduce semiconductor products having a variety of characteristics and functions. Here, we compare the function of each product to a part of the human body.

Although microcomputers (MCUs) that analyze information and give instructions to the system are key devices and in this analogy the equivalent of the brain, just as the human body does not function solely from the brain alone, electronic devices too are made up of a variety of parts that each have a role to play. There are parts that see and hear information from the outside world, parts that learn and remember, parts that convey the intentions of the brain to the rest of the body, parts that take in energy from the outside world and convey it to the rest of the body, parts that eliminate foreign substances, and so on. General-purpose devices support your system by providing the various functions that surround an MCU.
