You could provide an arbitrary 3-operand truth table 8 bitsalong with optionally selecting in the carry chain.

For instance, there will be a carry datasheet bit 0 to bit 1 if P datasheet is set i. The earliest and most famous chip, the arithmetic logic unit ALUprovided up to 32 functions of two 4-bit variables. It turns out that there is a rational system behind the operation set: Early minicomputers built ALUs out of a large number of simple gates. The carry from each bit position can be computed from the P and G signals by determining which combinations can produce a carry.

Before the microprocessor era, minicomputers built their processors from boards of individual chips. Newer Post Older Post Home.

To select a logic operation, the Datasheey input is set to 1. But if you look at the chip more closely, there are a few mysteries.

A faster technique is to use a chip, the look-ahead carry generatorthat performs carry lookahead across multiple chips, allowing them to all work in parallel.

This “ripple carry” makes addition a serial operation instead of a parallel operation, harming the processor’s performance. The is still used today in retro hacker projects.


I seem to remember some similar datasyeet in the high loop of the IFR service monitor, dataaheetand had the same one I think.

The carry-in input and the carry-out output let you chain together multiple chips to add longer words. The is still used today in retro hacker projects. Inside the vintage ALU chip: Die photo of the ALU chip. 744181

There are 63 logic gates. This circuit computes the G generate and P propagate signals for each bit of the ALU chip’s sum. The implements a 4-bit ALU providing 16 logic functions and 16 arithmetic functions, as datasheey datasheet below shows. C is the carry-in which is inverted.

A B F 0 0 S1 0 0 S0 0 0 S2 0 0 S3 Because the first two terms are inverted, the logic function for a particular select input doesn’t match the arithmetic function. Early minicomputers built Datasheet out of a large number of simple gates. Many variations of these basic functions are available, for a total of 16 arithmetic and 16 logical operations on two four-bit words. The chip has a few additional outputs. Multiple ‘slices’ can be combined for arbitrarily large word sizes.

The occupies a historically significant stage between older CPUs based on discrete logic functions spread over multiple circuit boards and modern microprocessors that incorporate all CPU functions in a single component. Craig Mudge; John E. To see how the circuits of the work together, try the interactive schematic below.

The S0-S3 selection lines select which function is added to A. It is straightforward to verify that it implements the table above. Carry lookahead uses “Generate” and “Propagate” signals to determine if each bit position will always generate a carry or can potentially generate a carry.


Other arithmetic functions take datasheer bit more analysis. Principles and Examples PDF. For example, consider the carry in to bit 2. I opened up atook die photos, and reverse engineered its TTL circuitry. The allowed an entire CPU and in some cases, an entire computer to be constructed on a single large printed circuit board. There are 63 logic gates. Retrieved from ” https: In addition, a carry either was generated by bit 1 or propagated from bit 0.

The other strange arithmetic functions can be understood similarly. For the ‘s outputs, Propagate must be set for Generate to be meaningful. There’s actually a system behind the ‘s set of functions: The datasheet for the ALU chip shows a strange variety of operations.

Inside the vintage ALU chip: how it works and why it’s so strange

The result is kind of like doing long addition by hand: And if you look at the circuit diagram belowwhy does it look like a random pile of gates rather than being built from standard full adder circuits. This may seem impossible: Result and truth table for inputs entered above Select: Even though many of the functions are strange and probably useless, there’s a reason for them. Integrated circuits Digital circuits History of computing hardware.

Allard’s Computer Museum Groningen. Thus, the 16 arithmetic functions of the are a consequence of combining addition with one of the 16 Boolean functions.
