    Microcontroller is the one with internal Data memory/Program Memory/Address decoder/Ports/Timers/perpherals. Generally does not have address and data bus externally through pins.

    Microprocessor requires everything - timers/ports/data and program memory outside. But generally more powerful (MIPS) and capable of addressing larger memory. Decoder chips are necessary to glue the outside chips together to realise a system.
