The DM74LS is a 4-bit high speed parallel Arithmetic. Logic Unit (ALU). Controlled by the four Function Select inputs (S0–S3) and the Mode Control input . The 74S 4-bit ALU bitslice resting on a page from the datasheet. The is a bit slice arithmetic logic unit (ALU), implemented as a series TTL. Description: The NTE is an arithmetic logic unit (ALU)/function generator in a Lead DIP type package that has the complexity of 75 equivalent gates on.

It turns out that there is a rational system behind the operation set: While the appears at first to be a bunch of gates randomly thrown together to yield bizarre functions, studying it shows that there is a system to its function set: 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. Retrieved 23 April And why are the logic functions adtasheet arithmetic functions in any particular row apparently unrelated?

The dynamic chart under the schematic describes what operation is being performed.

Wikipedia articles needing clarification from February Finally, the first carry must have come from somewhere: Finally, the first carry must have come from somewhere: To select datashee logic operation, the M input is set to 1. The previous section showed how the P propagate and G generate signals can be used when adding two values.


I opened up atook die photos, and reverse engineered its TTL circuitry. This section needs expansion. This may seem impossible: The chip uses the logic block below repeated four times to compute P and G for each bit. This may seem impossible: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

This datasheet provided 32 arithmetic and logic functions, datasheet well as carry lookahead for high performance. However, the is still of interest in the teaching of computer organization and CPU design because it provides opportunities for hands-on design and experimentation that are rarely available to students.

C is the carry-in which is inverted. You can help by adding to it.

The datasheet for the ALU chip shows a strange variety of operations. It is straightforward to verify that it implements the table above.

Newer Post Older Post Home. For the ‘s outputs, Datasehet must be set for Generate to be meaningful. The chip is important because of its key role in minicomputer history. Although overshadowed by the performance of today’s multi-gigahertz bit microprocessors, this was quite impressive when compared to the sub megahertz clock speeds of the early four and eight bit microprocessors.

It is also sometimes used in ‘hands-on’ college courses, to train future computer architects. Allard’s Computer Museum Groningen. Die photo of the ALU chip.

There are 63 logic gates. The is a series medium-scale integration MSI TTL integrated circuitcontaining the equivalent of 75 logic gates [2] and most commonly packaged as a pin DIP.

To see how the circuits of the work together, try the interactive schematic below. It implements addition, subtraction, and the Boolean functions you’d expect, but why does it provide several bizarre functions such as “A plus A and not B dagasheet

This expression yields all 16 Boolean functions, but in a scrambled order relative to the arithmetic functions. The internal structure of the chip datasheet surprisingly complex and difficult to datasheet at first.

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

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. But if you look at the chip more closely, there are a few mysteries. Even though many of the functions are strange and probably useless, there’s a reason for them.
