Give the truth table for the 3-input ``equivalence'' circuit
(also known as the ``unanimous'' circuit),
which is defined as follows.. It accepts three inputs W, X, and
Y and produces one output Z. The output of the circuit should be
1 only when W, X, and Y are the same (i.e. all three are 0 or
all three are 1).
Using the truth table you obtained in the previous question, construct a
logical circuit (using only AND, OR, and NOT gates)
that implements the 3-input ``equivalence'' circuit.
Let A and B be two bytes, where A = 01101011
and B = 00111011. What is the decimal value of A? What is
the decimal value of B? Perform an addition of
A and B in binary showing the sum and carry for each
bit. What is the decimal value of the sum?
Does it check with the sum of the decimal values of A and
Give the representation of the decimal number 176 in binary (radix = 2),
in ternary (radix = 3), and in octal (radix = 8). How many digits
would you need to represent the number 1234 in hexadecimal (radix = 16)?
Show the truth table for the ``sum'' function and the ``carry''
function for the full adder described in class. Draw a diagram for a
circuit to add 3-bit numbers using 3 full adders.
