Physical Parts of Control/Data/Management Plane.

reading about Control/Data/Management Planes , if I understand :

Control plane is where the Routing table is built.
Data Plane or also called Forwarding plane contains a copy of RIB
Management Plane , I am not sure what it is, probably it is just the interface of the router or the switch to which we connect to.

What I need to know, is the hardware that the above elements run on.

for instance does Control  plane encompasses CPU , Memory , or it is completely different Chip ? the same question applies for Data plane and Management Plane, on which hardware do they run on?

Thank you
