BENM 1143 (LOGIC CIRCUITS)
CHAPTER 44Types Of Combinational Logic Circuits
Arithmetic circuits are the one, which perform arithmetic operations like addition,subtraction, multiplication, division, and parity calculation. Most of the time, designingthese circuits is same as designing mux, encoders and decoders.
Adders are the basic buliding blocks of all the arthmetic circuits, adders add two binarynumbers and give out sum and carry as output. Basically we have two types of adders.
Adding two single-bit binary values, X, Y produces a sum S bit and a carry out C-out bit.This operation is called half addition and the circuit to realize it is called a half adder.Table 9.3:Truth Table of the half adder
S (X,Y) =
(1,2)S = X’Y + XY’S = X
YCARRY (X,Y) =
(3)CARRY = XY1
