VON NEUMANN ARCHITECTURE:

In this architecture data and program are stored together. Programs are fetched from the memory for execution by CPU. In Von Neumann architecture following pattern of instruction execution is followed:

  1. Instruction fetch: instruction and necessary data is fetched from memory.
  2. Decode: instruction and data are separated and instructions is decoded.
  3. Execute: instructions is executed and the corresponding data is manipulated and results are stored.

e.g.  8086 etc
