Control Unit of the processor:

The  Control Unit  of the processor is that unit which controls and coordinates the execution of instructions by the processor. It is responsible for defining and controlling the instruction cycle. In essence, it causes things to happen in the processor. It issues control signals external to the processor to cause data exchange with memory and I/O modules. It also issues control signals internal to the processor to move data between registers, to cause the ALU to perform a specified function, and to regulate other internal operations. It generates timing signals and initiates the Fetch cycle of instruction execution. When the instruction is fetched, it generates the sequence of micro-operations which need to be executed in order to execute the instruction. CU also generates timing signals for executing set of micro-operations. There are three different ways in which CU can generate these micro-operations: through a hardwired logic, by reading a programmable Array (PLA) table or by reading a Programmable Read Only Memory (PROM).
