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.

The logic functions are defined in terms of Select inputs as follows: 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.

The die layout closely matches the simulator schematic above, with inputs at the top and outputs at the bottom. Click image for full size. The A and B signals are the two 4-bit arguments. For the ‘s outputs, Propagate must be set for Generate datasjeet be meaningful.

Wikipedia articles needing clarification from February Finally, the first carry must have come from somewhere: One thing to note is A PLUS A gives you left shift, but there’s no way to do right shift on datashert without additional circuitry. datashedt

First, P 1 must be set for a carry out from bit 1. The works fine with active-low logic except the meanings of some pins change, and the operations are shuffled around.

The was used in various minicomputers and other devices beginning in the s, but as microprocessors became more powerful the practice of building a CPU from discrete components fell out of favor and the was not used in any new designs. Die photo of the ALU chip. There are 63 logic gates. And I show how the implements carry lookahead for high speed, resulting in its complex gate structure. This expression yields all 16 Boolean functions, but in datasheett scrambled order relative to the arithmetic functions.


And why are the logic functions and arithmetic functions in any particular row apparently unrelated? These 16 functions are selected by the S0-S3 select inputs. The circuitry is designed around carry lookahead, generating G and P signals, so the result can be produced in parallel without waiting for carry propagation.

Retrieved from ” https: In this article, I explain that the ‘s set of functions isn’t arbitrary but has a logical explanation. I can state with authority that the Prime spelled Pr1me computers that were TTL all used the what else would you do?

See this presentation for more information on modern adders, or this thesis for extensive details. The represents an evolutionary step between the CPUs of the s, which were constructed using discrete logic gatesand today’s single-chip CPUs or microprocessors.


The internal structure of the chip datasheet surprisingly complex dataasheet difficult to datasheet at first. The S0-S3 selection lines select which function is added to A.

C is the carry-in which is inverted. The P and G labels datasheet the datasheet are for active-low logic, so with active-high, they are reversed. Although overshadowed by the performance of today’s multi-gigahertz bit microprocessors, dattasheet was quite impressive when compared to the datashest megahertz clock speeds of the early four and eight bit microprocessors. Comparing to the ‘ datasheet Nat Semi in my case the logic diagram has the P and G outputs swapped compared to your lovely interactive graphic version.

This circuit computes the G generate and P propagate signals for each bit of the ALU chip’s sum.

They are in the standard order they datasheet be, counting datasheet in binary. The result is kind of like doing long addition by hand: Wikipedia articles needing clarification from February Articles to be expanded from November All articles to be expanded Articles using small message boxes.


The study of computer architecture is often an abstract, paper datsheet. So how is the implemented and why does it include such strange operations?

The P and G labels on the datasheet are for active-low logic, so with active-high, they are reversed. The implements a 4-bit ALU providing 16 logic functions and 16 arithmetic functions, as the datashee below shows.

For example, consider the carry in to bit 2. The is still used today in retro hacker projects. First, P 1 must be set for a carry out from bit 1. That would be the P, P, P primarily. This may seem impossible: A faster technique is to use a chip, the look-ahead carry generatordatasheet performs carry lookahead across multiple chips, allowing them to all work in parallel.

Although the is only an ALU and not a complete microprocessorit greatly simplified the development and manufacture of computers and other devices that required high speed computation during the late s through the early s, and is still referenced as a “classic” ALU design.

It looks like this ALU or related was used in at least one arcade machine in – as part of a bit processor – by a company named Cinematronics: The addition outputs are generated from the internal carries C0 through C3combined with the P and G signals.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Below this, the carry lookahead logic creates the carry C signals by combining the P and G signals with the carry-in Cn.
