1. Combinational Logic Logic and Digital System Design - CS 303 Erkay Savaş Sabancı University

2. Classification • Combinational • no memory • outputs depends on only the present inputs • expressed by Boolean functions • Sequential • storage elements + logic gates • the content of the storage elements define the state of the circuit • outputs are functions of both input and current state • state is a function of previous inputs • outputs not only depend the present inputs but also the past inputs

3. Combinational Circuits Combinational circuit (logic gates) n binary inputs m binary outputs • n input bits  2n possible binary input combinations • For each possible input combination, there is one possible output value • truth table • Boolean functions (with n input variables) • Examples: adders, subtractors, comparators, decoders, encoders, and multiplexers.

4. Analysis & Design of Combinational Logic • Analysis: to find out the function that a given circuit implements • We are given a logic circuit and • we are expected to find out • Boolean function(s) • truth table • A possible explanation of the circuit operation (i.e. what it does) • Firstly, make sure that the given circuit is, indeed, combinational.

5. Analysis of Combinational Logic • Verifying the circuit is combinational • No memory elements • No feedback paths (connections) • Secondly, obtain a Boolean function for each output or the truth table • Lastly, interpret the operation of the circuit from the derived Boolean functions or truth table • What is it the circuit doing? • Addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc.

6. Obtaining Boolean Function a F1 b c a b c a b F2 a c b c Example T1 T2 T4 T3

7. Example: Obtaining Boolean Function • Boolean expressions for named wires • T1 = abc • T2 = a + b + c • F2 = ab + ac + bc • T3 = F2’ = (ab + ac + bc)’ • T4 = T3T2 = (ab + ac + bc)’ (a + b + c) • F1 = T1 + T4 = abc + (ab + ac + bc)’ (a + b + c) = abc + ((a’ + b’)(a’ + c’)(b’ + c’)) (a + b + c) = abc + ((a’ + a’c’ + a’b’ + b’c’)(b’ + c’)) (a + b + c) = abc + (a’b’ + a’c’ + a’b’c’ + b’c’)(a+b+c)

8. Example: Obtaining Boolean Function • Boolean expressions for outputs • F2 = ab + ac + bc • F1 = abc + (a’b’ + a’c’ + b’c’) (a + b + c) • F1 = abc + a’b’c + a’bc’ + ab’c’ • F1 = a(bc + b’c’) + a’(b’c + bc’) • F1 = a(b  c)’ + a’(b  c) • F1 =

9. Example: Obtaining Truth Table • F1 = • F2 = ab + ac + bc carry sum This is what we call full-adder (FA)

10. Design of Combinational Logic • Design Procedure: • We start with the verbal specification about what the resulting circuit will do for us (i.e. which function it will implement) • Specifications are often verbal, and very likely incomplete and ambiguous (if not faulty) • Wrong interpretations can result in incorrect circuit • We are expected to find • firstly, Boolean function(s) (or truth table) to realize the desired functionality • Logic circuit implementing the Boolean function(s) (or the truth table)

11. Possible Design Steps • Find out the number of inputs and outputs • Derive the truth table that defines the required relationship between inputs and outputs • Obtain asimplified Boolean function for each output • Draw the logic diagram (enter your design into CAD) • Verify the correctness of the design

12. Design Constraints • From the truth table, we can obtain a variety of simplified expressions • Question: which one to choose? • The design constraints may help in the selection process • Constraints: • number of gates • propagation time of the signal all the way from the inputs to the outputs • number of inputs to a gate • number of interconnections • power consumption • driving capability of each gate

13. Example: Design Process • BCD-to-2421 Converter • Verbal specification: • Given a BCD digit (i.e. {0, 1, …, 9}), the circuit computes 2421 code equivalent of the decimal number • Step 1: how many inputs and how many outputs? • four inputs and four outputs • Step 2: • Obtain the truth table • 0000  0000 • 1001  1111 • etc.

14. BCD-to-2421 Converter • Truth Table

15. BCD-to-2421 Converter CD AB 00 01 11 10 00 0 0 0 0 01 0 1 1 1 11 10 1 1 • Step 3: Obtain simplified Boolean expression for each output • Output x: x = BD +BC + A

16. Output y: Boolean Expressions for Outputs • Output z:

17. Boolean Expressions for Outputs • Step 4: Draw the logic diagram • Output t: t = D x = BC + BD + A y = A + BD’ + BC z = A + B’C + BC’D

18. Example: Logic Diagram A B x = BC + BD + A C D y = A + BD’ + BC z = A + B’C + BC’D t = D

19. Example: Verification • Step 5: Check the functional correctness of the logic circuit • Apply all possible input combinations • And check if the circuit generates the correct outputs for each input combinations • For large circuits with many input combinations, this may not be feasible. • Statistical techniques may be used to verify the correctness of large circuits with many input combinations

20. Binary Adder/Subtractor • (Arithmetic) Addition of two binary digits • 0 + 0 = 0, 0 + 1 = 1, 1 + 0 = 1, and 1 + 1 = 10 • The result has two components • the sum (S) • the carry (C) • (Arithmetic) Addition of three binary digits

21. Half Adder x S y C • Truth table S = x’y + xy’ = x  y C = xy HA HA

22. Full Adder 1/2 • A circuit that performs the arithmetic sum of three bits • Three inputs • the range of output is [0, 3] • Two binary outputs

23. Full Adder 2/2 • Karnaugh Maps S = xy’z’ + x’y’z + xyz + x’yz’ = ... = ... = x  y  z C = xy + xz + yz Two level implementation 1st level: three AND gates 2nd level: One OR gate

24. Full Adder: Hierarchical Realization x HA S HA S y C C C z • Sum • S = x  y  z • Carry • C = xy + xz + yz = (x + y) z + xy = (x  y) z + xy • This allows us to implement a full-adder using two half adders. x  y  z = S

28. Hierarchical Design Methodology • The design methodology we used to build carry-ripple adder is what is referred as hierarchical design. • In classical design, we have: • 9 inputs including C0. • 5 outputs • Truth tables with 29 = 512 entries • We have to optimize five Boolean functions with 9 variables each. • Hierarchical design • we divide our design into smaller functional blocks • connect functional units to produce the big functionality

31. Recall how we do subtraction (2’s complement) X – Y = X + (2n – Y) = X + ~Y + 1 Subtractor x0 y0 x2 x1 y1 x3 y3 y2 logic-1 4-bit adder circuit a3 b3 a2 b2 a1 b1 a0 b0 C4 C0 S3 S0 S1 S2 S3 S0 S1 S2 C4

32. Overflow • How to detect overflows: • two n-bit numbers • we add them, and result may be an (n+1)-bit number  overflow. • Unsigned numbers: • easy • check the carryout. • Signed numbers • more complicated • overflow occurs in addition, when the operands are of the same sign

33. Examples: Overflows …11 …00 0 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 -68 68 …00 …11 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 91 -91 1 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 • Example 1: 8-bit signed numbers …00 159 • Example 2: 8-bit signed numbers …11 -159

34. How to Detect Overflows: • First Method • If both operands are positive and the MSB of the result is 1. • If both operands are negative and the MSB of the result is 0.

35. Detecting Overflows: First Method • V = an-1’ bn-1’ Sn-1 + an-1 bn-1 Sn-1’ • Can we do it better?

36. Detecting Overflows …11 …00 0 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 A A …11 …00 0 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 1 B B 0 0 C C …00 …11 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 S S • Second method: • Remember we have other variables when adding: • Carries Look at C7and C8 in both cases

37. Detecting Overflows: Second Method • Observations • Case 1: V = 1 when C7 = 1 and C8 = 0 • Case 2: V = 1 when C7 = 0 and C8 = 1 • V = C7 C8 = 1 • Think about whether this could happen when the operands have different signs. • C7= C8 • Overflow detection logic • Which one is simpler? • V = C7 C8 • V = a7’ b7’ S7 + a7 b7 S7’

38. Faster Adders a0 b0 a1 b1 a2 b2 a3 b3 FA y FA x FA y y FA y x x x C0=0 C1 C2 C3 C4 z C z z z C C C S S S S S0 S1 S2 S3 Ripple-carry adder • What is the total propagation time of 4-bit ripple-carry adder? • FA: propagation time of a single full adder. • We have four full adders connected in cascaded fashion • Total propagation time: ??

39. Carry Propagation ai bi Si Ci+1 Ci • Propation time of a full adder • XOR 2AND= 2OR • FA 2XOR Pi Gi

40. Carry Propagation a0 a3 a2 a1 b3 b1 b2 b0 C0 P0 P1 C1 P2 C2 P3 C3 C1 C3 C2 C4 S1 S3 S2 S0 • Delays • P0, P1, P2, P3: XOR 2AND • C1(S0):  2AND + 2AND  4AND • C2(S1):  4AND + 2AND  6AND • C3(S2):  6AND + 2AND  8AND • C4(S3):  8AND + 2AND  10AND

41. Faster Adders • The carry propagation technique is a limiting factor in the speed with which two numbers are added. • Two alternatives • use faster gates with reduced delays • Increase the circuit complexity (i.e. put more gates) in such a way that the carry delay time is reduced. • An example for the latter type of solution is carry lookahead adders • Two binary variables: • Pi = ai bi – carry propagate • Gi = aibi – carry generate

42. Carry Lookahead Adders • Sum and carry can be expressed in terms of Pi and Gi: • Pi = ai bi; Gi = aibi • Si = Pi Ci • Ci+1 = Gi + PiCi • Why the names (carry propagate and generate)? • If Gi = 1 (both ai= bi = 1), then a “new” carry is generated • If Pi = 1 (either ai= 1 or bi = 1), then a carry coming from the previous lower bit position is propagated to the next higher bit position

43. Generating Pi and Gi Signals a3 b3 • Example: 4-bit operands P3 G3 a2 P2 b2 G2 a1 P1 b1 G1 a0 P0 b0 G0

44. 4-bit Carry Lookahead Adder • We can use the carry propagate and carry generate signals to compute carry bits used in addition operation • C0 = input • C1 = G0 + P0C0 • C2 = G1 + P1C1 = G1 + P1(G0 + P0C0) = G1 + P1G0 + P1P0C0 • C3 = G2 + P2C2 = G2 + P2(G1 + P1G0 + P1P0C0) = G2 + P2G1 + P2P1G0 + P2P1P0C0 • C4 =

45. 4-bit Carry Lookahead Circuit 1/3 C3 P2 G2 C2 P1 G1 C1 P0 G0 C0 C1 = G0 + P0C0 C2 = G1 + P1G0 + P1P0C0 C3 = G2 + P2G1 + P2P1G0 + P2P1P0C0

46. 4-bit Carry Lookahead Circuit 2/3 • All three carries (C1, C2, C3) can be realized as two-level implementation (i.e. AND-OR) • C3 does not have to wait for C2 and C1 to propagate • C3 has its own circuit • The propagations happen concurrently • Certain parts are repeated.
