Address Bus

Card Puncher Data Processing


The address bus to transmit the address (location information).

When a processor needs to read or write to a memory location, it specifies that memory location on the address bus (the value to be read or written is sent on the data bus).



The size of the address bus is an important component in the calculation of the memory maximum size.

One bit equals one physical line on the bus.
