Microprocessor - Address lines

  1. Mar 16, 2012 #1
    A microprocessor with 12 bit address bus will be able to access how many kilobytes of memory ??
    2^12 = 4096 = 4 kB of memory
    Is it right ???
    Thanks.

    Yes, you are correct. What if it had 16 address lines?

    EDIT -- BTW, it is usually written "KB", since k = 1000, and K = 1024.
