Till now we have introduced logic gates concepts andcombinational circuits design procedure.
Logic gates are the basic components in digitalcomputer systems.
The basic operations performed by computers arearithmetic operations (+, -, *, /).
Chapter 1 shows how addition and subtraction areperformed in the binary system (i.e. how they areperformed by digital computers).
In this lecture we will design adders and subtractorsfrom the basic logic gates introduced in Chapter 2 inaddition to binary magnitude comparators.
