What is a processor? how is it manufactured?

Processor : A processor is an Integrated electronic Circuit that performs the calculations that run a computer,mobile...etc..a Processor performs arithmetical, logical, input/output(I/O) and other basic instructions that are passed from an operating system (OS). Most other processors are dependent on the operations of a processor.
****The terms processor,CPU and microprocessor are commonly linked.****
 A processor includes an arithmetical logic and control unit(CU),which measures capability in terms of the following

1. Ability to process instructions at a given time.
2. Maximum number of bits/instructions.
3. Relative clock speed.

  Now, you might be Excited to know how a processor is made of !

 Processors are made mostly of an element called silicon. Silicon is rather common in earth's crust(sand, especially Quartz) and is a semiconductor. Quartz has high percentages of silicon in the form of of silicon dioxide(sio2) and is the base ingredient for semiconductor manufacturing.

Now, lets see which companies manufacture CPU's :

Qualcomm :

Qualcomm has been a World leader in offering intelligent mobile devices,and use of AI to get the best insights into the future.They are into the third generation of AI-based mobile platform. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform  can run directly on the smartphone without the need to access the cloud.It also announced snapdragon 865. its next generation processor. at the recently held snapdragon Tech summit. It aims to bring advanced capabilities in connectivity,camera,digital assistants,gaming and entertainment.speed and more

Apple

The leading smartphone maker has come up with chips such as A13 Bionic. it has recently brought the A12 bionic chip Which is the first 7nm smartphone chip containing 6.9bn transistors. it boasts a neural engine and a GPU which the company claims 50pc faster than last year's A11 chip(SOC). it is enabling Apple to be one of the leaders in AI-capable chip market across the globe. Ith had earlier come up with 12 Bionic System on chip, which was used in iphone 10 xs max.

Huawei

Chinese smartphone maker come up with Kirin 990, an artificial intelligent chip with seven-nanometer Processor. It is being seen as the next generation of processing technology for smartphones.  The company has recently launched Huawei mate 30 pro with this processor ,it has previously launched Huawei mate 20, which is the worls's first mobile which comes with 5G-ready 7nm AI chipset.

Mediatek

Taiwanese chip manufacturer Mediatek has announced its flagship proccesors, helio G90 and G90T. The chips include an octa-core CPU clocked at up to 2.05GHz, which uses the same ARM cortex-A76 and A55 cores as the latest flagship processors from Qualcomm and Huawei.

Samsung

Samsung is one of the latest in the list to have introduced next-gen mobile System-On-Chip(SOC). called exynos 990, it is 20% faster than the previous exynos 980 Chip set. and graphics and AI get a bigger speed boost. Samsung also uses Qualcomm Snapdragon Chip set in some samsung mobiles.
Samsung also announced an accompaying 5G modem chip, the Exynos Modem 5123, and a host of memory chip improvements that should make it cheaper and easier on your battery to stuff your phone full of high speed RAM and longer-term flash storage.
