I opened up atook die photos, and reverse engineered its TTL circuitry.

Even though many of the functions are dagasheet and probably useless, there’s a reason for them. To avoid this, the computes the carries first and then adds all four bits in parallel, avoiding the delay of ripple carry. This chip provided 32 arithmetic and logic functions, as well as carry lookahead for high performance.

I investigated the chip to find out. However, the can also be used with active-low logic, where a low signal indicates a 1. The datashewt a 4-bit ALU providing 16 logic functions and datasheet arithmetic functions, as the datasheet below shows.

To see how the circuits of the work together, try the interactive schematic below. The metal layer of the die is visible; the silicon forming transistors and resistors is hidden behind it. This is called the Generate case.

For instance, datasehet will be a carry from bit 0 7411 bit 1 if P 0 is set i. Retrieved from ” https: Using the chip simplified the design of a minicomputer processor and made it more compact, so it was used in many minicomputers.



Many variations of these basic functions are available, for a total of 16 arithmetic and 16 logical operations on two four-bit words. I’d never seen ECL before and if i have since don’t remember it. 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.

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 datzsheet. The Boolean logic functions for arithmetic are in a different order than for logical operations, explaining why there’s no obvious connection between the arithmetic and logical functions.

The chip is important because of its key role in minicomputer history. The P and Datxsheet labels on the datasheet are for active-low logic, so with active-high, they are reversed.

Virtual Machines of the Past and Future datasheet Archived from the original on This “ripple carry” makes addition a serial operation instead of a parallel operation, harming the processor’s performance.

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

Thus, the carries can be computed in parallel, before the addition takes place. I seem dwtasheet remember some similar stuff in the high loop of the IFR service monitor, theand had the same one I think.


I’m describing the with active-high logic, where a high datahseet indicates 1, as you’d expect. The carry-lookahead logic in the is almost identical datasheet the earlier 74LS83 adder chip.

The straightforward but slow way to build an adder is to use a simple one-bit full adders for each bit, with the carry out of 74118 adder datasheet into the next adder. Virtual Machines of the Past and Future “.

74181 Datasheet

Hi Ken, Great blog. The carry-lookahead logic in the is almost identical to the earlier 74LS83 adder chip. 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.

The earliest and most famous chip, the arithmetic logic unit ALUprovided up to 32 functions of two 4-bit variables. Datasheet study of computer architecture is often an abstract, paper exercise. Multiple ‘slices’ can be combined for arbitrarily large word sizes. Below this, the carry lookahead logic creates the carry C signals by combining the P and G signals with the carry-in Cn.

The S bits on the right select the operation. I’ve spent some time duplicating the block diagram with individual logic gates and have built up a couple of prototypes!
