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.

First, P 1 must be set for a carry out from bit 1.

The internal structure of the chip is surprisingly complex and difficult to understand at first. The is still used today in retro hacker projects. Prior to the introduction of thecomputer CPUs occupied multiple circuit boards and even very simple computers could fill multiple cabinets.
Around the edges you can see the thin bond wires that connect the pads on the die to the external pins. The P and G signals are generated by the top part of the circuitry, as described above. Archived from the original on Craig Mudge; John E. Result and truth table for inputs entered above Select: This may seem impossible: The logic functions are defined in terms of Select inputs as follows: Is there any reason behind the ‘s operations, or did they just randomly throw things in?
The P and G labels datasheet the datasheet are for active-low logic, so with active-high, they are reversed. Higher-order carries have more cases and are progressively more complicated.
Allard’s Computer Museum Groningen. I announce my latest blog posts on Twitter, so follow me at kenshirriff. They are in the standard order they datasheet be, counting datasheet in binary. Why are there 16 possible functions? C is the carry-in which is inverted.
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.
The P and G signals 7481 generated by the top part of the circuitry, as described 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. This expression yields all 16 Boolean functions, but in a scrambled order relative to the arithmetic functions.
The carry-lookahead logic in the is almost identical to the earlier 74LS83 adder chip.
Hi Ken, Great blog. The addition outputs are generated from the internal carries C0 through C3combined with the P and G signals. The S bits on the right select the operation. As you can see, the carry logic dstasheet more complicated for higher-order bits, but the point is that each carry can be computed from G and P terms and the carry-in. Principles and Examples PDF. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The study of computer architecture is often an abstract, paper exercise.
These 16 functions are selected by the S0-S3 select inputs.

The allowed an entire CPU and in some cases, an entire computer to be daatsheet on a single large printed circuit board. P and G are the carry propagate and generate outputs, used for carry lookahead with longer words. 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.
Using the chip simplified the design of a minicomputer processor and made it more compact, so it was used in many minicomputers. Fairly soon the LSI level bumped up and I never used them again. But, it’s the first thing I thought of when you started listing some of the curious functions the offers.
The is a series medium-scale integration MSI TTL integrated circuitcontaining the equivalent of 75 logic gates  datashfet most commonly packaged as a pin DIP. Gordon Bell ; J. Before the microprocessor era, minicomputers built their processors from boards of individual chips. Why do s0 and s1 seem backwards? You could provide an arbitrary 3-operand truth table 8 bitsalong with optionally selecting in the carry chain.
It implements addition, subtraction, and the Boolean functions you’d expect, but why does it provide several bizarre functions such as “A plus 47181 and not B “? This section needs expansion.
The dynamic chart under the schematic describes what operation is being performed. This expression yields all 16 Boolean functions, but in datasheett scrambled order relative to the arithmetic functions. However, the is still of interest in the teaching of computer datashert and CPU design because it provides opportunities for hands-on design and experimentation that are rarely available to students.
