The binary number system uses a positional weighting scheme based on powers of 2. The hexadecimal number system uses a positional weighting based on powers of 16. The hexadecimal number system provides a useful shorthand for representing large binary numbers. Negative numbers are often represented in binary form using the two’s complement representation. This representation allows subtraction to be carried out using the same basic circuitry used for addition. When adding two’s complement numbers with the same sign, a condition called overflow can occur.
3(b). 3(c), is used as a building block for a more useful circuit called a full-adder. 4(a). It is a combinational logic circuit with three inputs, labelled A, B, Ci and two outputs, labelled S and Co. The circuit is used to find the sum S of a pair of binary digits, A and B. Co is 1 if a carryout is generated and is 0 otherwise. Ci or carry-in, is used to allow any carry generated by adding a previous pair of binary digits to be included in the sum. 1. 4(c) where a 4-bit addition unit is built from a series of four fulladders.
5 To add 1 to the least significant bit. 6 If R is taken high, then Q goes low forcing Q high. Q holds G1 low so that the outputs remain unchanged when R returns to 0. The circuit is now in its original state. 9 While the clock is high, the output will follow the D input. 10 The read line would need to be taken ‘high’, so that if the corresponding Q output was high, the AND gate would signal 1 and if the Q output was ‘low’, the AND gate would signal 0. 11 Each Q output will initially be 1. 40 Boolean logic EXERCISES 1 Complete the truth tables for the following circuit.
