I will make digital circuits and use it to upgrade and charge a laptop or netbook or android, by using a microcontroller sensor which can connect threw bluetooth, infared, or usb. I will also use it to power a high amount of electricity.

Microcontrollers are small computers on only one integraded circuit. This contains its processor core. A microcontroller is peripheral as a system contained by itself with small processor and tiny size that in planted on top of a single circuit that has been integrated and maybe soldered. It has an ADC (Analog to Digital Converter), and a ISR (Interrupt Server Routine) which is used to program it. It has a CPU (Central Processing Unit), which is the brain of the microcontroller. Its memory or program can be erased threw the computer by ultraviolet light. An advanced microcontroller would have a six transistor SRAM.

The RAM is the random access memory, which is its basic data computer storage in a microcontroller. It is actually the integrated circuit of the microcontroller. Some RAMs are magnetic core memory chips. The system random access memory (SRAM) is the same thing as RAM.

Microcontrollers can be part of a motherboard. They don't have that high of memory hierarchy. Memory Hierarchy is known as the virtual memory of the hard drive.

A hard drive is an access device for the digigital memory of the computer.  This is dominent for the digital data of an computer.
