FW example, the decimal digits 0 khmugb9 kc nprucncd in a digital system with a code of tow bits (e.g., the number 7 is represented by 0111).

Through various techniques, groups of bits can be made to represent discrete symbols, whch are then used to develop the system in a digital format. Thus,a digital system is a system that manipulates discrete eIements of information represented internally in binary form. Discrete quantities of information either emerge h m the nature of the data being processed or may be quantized from a continuous process. On the one hand, a payroll schedule is an inherently discrete process that contains employee names,social security numbers, weekly salaries, income taxes, and so on. An employee's paycheck is processed by means of discrete data values such as letters of the alphabet (names), digits (salary), and special symbols (such as $1. On the other hand, a research scientist may observe a continuous pmess, but record only specific quantities in tabular form. The scientist is thus quantizing continuous data, making each number in his or her table a discrete quantity, In many cases, the quantization of a process can be performed automatically by an analog-to-digital converter. The general-purpose digital computer is the best-known example of a digital system.The major parts of a computer are a memory unit, a cened processing unit, and input-output units. The memory unit stores programs as well as input, output, and intermediate data. The central processing unit performs arithmetic and other data-processing operations as specified by the program. The program and data prepared by a user are transferred into memory by means of an input device such as a keyboard. An output device, such as a printer, receives the results of the computations, and the printed results are presented to the user, A digital computer can accommodate many input and output devices. One very useful device is a communication unit that provides interaction with other users through the Internet. A digital computer is a powerful instrument that can perform not only arithmetic computations. but also logical operations. In addition, it can be programmed to make decisionsbased on internal and external conditions. There are fundamental reasons that commwcial products are made with digital circuits. Like a digital computer, most digital devices are programmable, By changing the program in a programmable device, the same underlying hardware can be used for many different applications.Dramatic cost reductions in digital devices have come about because of advances in digital integrated circuit technology. As the number of transistors that can be put on a piece of silicon increases to produce complex functions,the cost per unit decreases and digital devices can be bought at an increasingly reduced price. Equipment built with digital integrated circuits can perform at a speed of hundreds of millions of operations per second. Digital systems can be made to operate with extreme reliability by using error-correcting codes. An example of this strategy is the digital versatile disk (DVD), in which hgital information representing video, audio, and other data is recorded without the loss of a single item. Digital information on a DVD is recorded in such a way that, by examining the ccde in each digital sample before it is played back, any error can be automatically identified and corrected. A digital system is an interconnection of digital modules. To understand the operation of each digital module, it is necessary to have a basic knowledge of digitd circuits and their lugical function.The first seven chapters of this book present the basic tools of digital design, such as logic gate structures,combinational and sequential circuits, and programmable logic devices. Chapter 8 introduces digital design at the register transfer level (RTL).Chapters 9 and 10 deal with asynchronous sequentialcircuits and the various integrated digital logic families. Chapters 1 1 and 12 introduce commercial integrated circuits and show how they can be connected in the laboratory to perform experiments with digital circuits.

A major trend in digital design mahodology is the use of a hardware description language (HDL) mdnrnbe and sirnuhe thc functionalityof a digital circuil. An HDLrrscmbles .pro-

The cotfficient values for base 5 can be only 0, 1,2,3, and 4. The octal number system is a base-8 system that has eight digits: 0, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. An example of an octal numkr is 127.4. To determine its equivalent decimal value, we expand the number in a power series with abaseof&

Note that the digits 8 and 9 cannot appear in an octal number. It is customary to borrow the needed r digits for the coefficients from the decimal system when the h e of the number is I a s than 10.

There are four 1's in the binary number. The corresponding decimal number i s the sum of the four powers of two. The first 24 n u m h obtained from 2 to the power of n are lhted in Table 1.1. In computer work, 2'' is referred to as K (kilo), 220 as M (mega), 2m as G -1, and 240 as T (tera). Thus, 4K = 2'' = 4,096 and 16M = Zz4 = 16,n7,216. Computer capacity is usually given in bytes. A byte is equal to eight bits and can accommadate (i.e., represent the code of)one keyboard character.Acomputer hard disk with four gigabm of storage has a capacity of 4G = 232bytes (approximstely 4 billion bytes).

NUMBER-BASE CONVERSIONS The conversion of a n u m k r i n base r to decimal is done by expanding the number in a power series and adding all the terms as shown previously. We now present a general procedure for the reverse operation of convening a decimal number to a number in bax ,:If the n u m k i n cludes a radix point, it is necessary to reparate the n u m k into an integer p m and a fraction pan, skeeachpartmust be canveneddifferently. The convexxion of adecimalinteger to a m ber in base r is done by dividing the number and all sucewsivc quotimrs by r and accumulating the remainders. This procedure is best illusvated by example.

Then 19 is dividsd by 8 to give an integer quotient of 2 and a remainder of 3. Finally, 2 ia divided by 8 to give a quotient of 0 and o remainder of 2.

Chapter 1 Digital Systems and Elnary Plumbers The conversion of decimal numbers with both integer and fraction parts is done by c m verting the integer and the fraction separately and then combining the two answers. Using the results of Examples 1.1 and 1.3, we obtain (41.6875)10 = (101001.1011)2 From Examples 1.2 and 1.4, we have (153.513)10 = (231.406517)g


OCTAL AND HEXADECIMAL N U M B E R S The conversion from and to binary, mtal, and hexadecimal plays an impartant role in digital computers. Since = 8 and z4 = 16,each octal digit corresponds to three binary digits and each hexadecimal digit corresponds to four binary digits. The first 16 numbers in the decimal, binary, octal, and hexadecimal number systems are listed in Table 1-2. The conversion from binary to octaI is easiIy accomplished by partitioning the binary number into groups of three digits each, starting born the binary point and proceahng to the left and to the right. The corresponding octal digit is then assigned to each group. The following exampIe illustrates the procedure: (10 110 001 101 011 111 100 000 110)2 = (26153,7406)8 2

Chapter 1 Mgital Systems and Binwy Numbers

Dlmlnlshed Radix Complement: Given a number N in base r having n digits, the (r - 1)'s complement of N is defined as ( r n - 1) - N. For decimal numbers, r = 10 and r - 1 = 9, so the 9's complement of N i s (lon - 1) - N. In this case, 1W represents a number that consists of a single 1 followed by n 0's. 10" - 1is a number represented by n 9's. For exarnpIe, if n = 4,we have lo4 = 10,000 and lo4 - 1 = 9999. It follows that the 9's compIement of a decimal number is obtained by rmbtracting each digit from 9.Here ~ I Zsome numerical examples: The 9's complement of 546700 is 999999 - 546700



The 9's cornplement of 012398 is 95999 - 012398 = 987601. For binary numbers, r = 2 and r - 1 = 1, so the 1's complement of N is (2" - 1 ) - N, Again, 2" is represented by a binary number that consists of a 1 followed by n O's, 2" - 1 is a binary number represented by n 1 's. For example, if n = 4, we have z4 = (10000)2and z4 - 1 = ( 1 1 1 1 )2. Thus, the 1's complement of a binary n u m k is obtained by subtracting e a ~ hdigit from 1. However, when subtractiag binary digits from 1, we can have either 1 - 0 = 1 or 1 - 1 = 0,which causes the bit to change from 0 to 1 or from 1 to 0, respectively. Therefore, the 1's complement of a binary number is formed by changing 1's to 0's and 0's to 1's. The following are some numerical examples:

The 1's complement of 1011000 is 0100111.

The 1's complement of 0101101 is 1010010. The ( r - 1)'s complement of octal or hexadecimal numbers is obtained by subtracting each digit from 7 or F (decimal 15), respectively.

The r's complement of an n-digit number N in base r is defined as r" - N for N # 0 and as 0 for N = 0. Comparing with the (r - 1)'s complement, we note that the r's complement is obtained by adding 1 to the ( r - 1)'s complement, since r" - iV = [(rn - 1) - N] + 1. Thus,the 10's complement of decimal 2389 is 76 10 + 1 = 7611 and is obtained by adding 1 to the 9's-complement value. The 2's complement of binary 1011OO is 0 10011 1 = 010100 and is obtained by adding 1 to the 1's-complement value. Since 10 is a number represented by a 1followed by n O's, 10" - N,which is the 10's cornpiemeat of N, can be formed also by leaving a l l least significant 0's unchanged, subtracting the first nonzero least significant digit from 10,and subtracting dl higher significant digits fiom 9. Thus,


the 10's complement of 012398 is 987602 and

the 1O's complement of 246700 is 753300

To see this relationship. note that the r's complement of N is r" N, so that the complcment of the complement is r" (r" N) = Nand is equal to the niginal number.




Subtraction wlth Complements The direct method of rubtraction taught inelementary sehwlsuses the borrow concept.

However. when subaction is implemented with digilal hardware, Ihe mahod is lcrs efficient than the method that uses complemcnls. The subtrsction of two n-digit unsigned numbers M - N in base r can be done aa follows: 1. Add the minuend M to the r's complement of the suhtrshend N. Mathcmuically. M + (r' N ) = M N + #"'

Chapter 1 Digltal Systems and Binary Numbers

The following examples illustratethe procedure:

Using 10's complement, subtract 72532 - 3250.


10' s complement of N = 96750 Sum = 169282 Discard end carry lo5 = - 100000 Answer = 69282 Note that M has five digits and N has only four digits, Both numbers must have the same number of digits, so we write N as 03250.Taking the 10's complement of N produces a 9 in the most significant position,The occurrence of the end carry signifies that M 2 N and that the result

is therefore positive.


Using 10's complement, subtract 3250 - 72532. 10's complement of N = +27468 S u m = 30718

There is no end carry. Therefore,the answer is -(lo's complement of 30718) = -69282. Note that since 3250 < 72532, the result is negative. Because we are &ding with unsigned numbers, there is really no way to get an unsigned result for this case. When subtracting with complements, we recognize the negative answer from the absence of the end carry and the complemented result. When working with papa and pencil, we can change the answer to a dgmd negative number in order to put it in a familiar form. Subtraction with complements is done with binary numbers in a similar manner, using the procedure outlined previously.

Given the two binary numbers X = 10101M3 and Y = 1000011, perform the subtraction (a) X - Y and @) Y - X by using 2's complements.

SIGNED B I N A R Y NUMBERS Positive integers (including zero) can be represented as unsigned numbers. However, to represent negative integers, we need a notation for negative values. In ordinary arithmetic, a a g ative n u m b is indicated by a minus sign and a positive nmker by a plus sign. Because of hardwm limitations, computers must represent everything with binary digits. It is customary to represent the sign with a bit placed in the leftmost pition of the number. The convention is to make the sign bit 0 for positive and 1 for nemve. It is important to re& that both signed and unsigned binary numbers consist of a string of bits when represented in a computer. The user determines whether the number is ~ignedor unsigned, If the binary n u m k is signed, then the leftmost bit represents the sign and the rest of the bits represent ?henumber. If the binary number is assumed to be unsigned,then the leftmost bit is the most simcant bit of the number. For example, the string of bits OlOO1 can be considered as 9 (unsigned binary) or as 4-9{signed binary) because the leftmast bit is 0. Tbe string of bits 1 1001 represents the binary equivalent of 25 when consided as au unsigned number and the binary equivalent of -9 when considered as a signed number. This is because the 1 that is in the leftmost position designates a negative and the other four bits represent binary 9. Urnally, there is no confusion in identifyingthe bits if the type of representationfor the

number is known in advance. The representation of the signed numbers in the 1 s t example is referred to as the signedmagnit& convention. In this notation, the number consists of a magnitude and a symbol (+ or -) or a bit (0 or 1) indicating the sign. This is the representationof signed ntunbers used in o r d i n q arithmetic. When dthmetic operations are implemented in a computer, it is more convenient to use a different system, referred to as the signed-complemnr system, for rep= senting negative numbers. In this system, a negative number is indicated by its complement. Whereas the signed-magnitudesystem negates a number by changing its sign, the signed-cornplement system negates a number by taking its complement. Since positive numbers always start with 0 (plus) in the bftmost position, the complement will always start with a 1, indicating a negative number.The signed-complementsystem can use either the 1's or the 2's complement, but the 2's complement is the mast common, As an example. consider the number 9, represenmi in binary with eight bits. +9 is represented with a sign bit of 0 in the leftmost @tion, followed by the binary equivalent of 9, which gives 00001001. Node that all eight bits must have a * , therefore,0's are hmkd following the sign bit up to the first 1. Although there is only one way to q r a e n f +9, the= are three different ways to repsent -9 with eight bits:

signed-magnitude representation: signed-1's-complement repsentation:

In signed-magnitude,-9 is obtainedh m $9 by changing the sign bit in &e leftmost position from 0 to 1. In signed-1's complement, -9 is obtained by complementing alI the bits of +9, including the sign bit. The signed-2's-complementrepresentationof -9 is obtained by taking the 2's complement of the positive number, including the sign bit.

The addition of two numbers in the signed-magnitude system follows the rules of oPdinary arithmetic. If the signs are the same, we add the two magnitudes and give the sum the common sign. If the signs are different, we subtract the smaller magnitudefrom the Iarger and give the difference the sign of the larger magnitude. For example, (+25) + (-37) = -(37 - 25) = -12 and is done by subtracting the smaller magnitude, 25, fram the larger magnitude. 37. and appending the sign of 37 to the result. This is a process that requires a comparison of the signs and magnitudes and then performingeither addition or subtraction. The same procedure applies to binary numbers in signed-magnitude representation. In contrast, the rule for adding numbers in the signed-complement system dms not require a comparison or subtraction, but only addition. The procedure is very simple and can be stated as follows for binary numbers: The addition of two signed binary n u m h with negative n u m h represented in signed2'scomplement form is obtained from tfie addition of the two n u m k including heir sign bits. A carry out of the sign-bit position is discarded. Numerical examples for addition follow:


negarive numb must be initially in 2's-cumplement form and hat if the sum obtained after the addition is negative, it is in 2's-complement form. In each of the four cases, the operation p e r f w is addition with the sip bit included. Any carry o& of the gign-bitposition is discadd, md negative redts are automatically in 2'scomplement form. In order to obtain a correct answer, we must ensure that the result has a sufficient number af bits to accommodate the sum. If we start with two n-bit numbers and the sum occupies n f bits, we say that an werflow occurs. When one performs the add&ion with paper and pencil, an overflow is not a problem, because we are not limited by the width of the page. We just add another 0 to a positive number or another 1 ta a negative n u m k in the most siflcant position to extend the number to n + 1 bits and then perform the addition. Ovefflow is a problem in computers because the numbr of bits that hold a number is finite, and a result that exceeds the fmite value by 1 cannot be accommodated The complement form of representing negative numbers is unfamiliar to those used to the signed-magnitudesystem,To determine the value of a negative number in signed-2's complement, it is necessary to convert the number to a positive number to place it k a more W a r form. For example, the signed binary n u m k 11111001 is negative the leftmost bit is 1. Its 2's complement is 00000111, which is the binary equivalent of +7. We thefore m g nize the original negative number to be equal to -7.



Scction 1.7 Blnary Codes


Subtraction of two signed binary numkrr when negative numbor are in 2's-complement farm is simple and can be stated as follows:

Take me 2k somplemml of the subVahcnd (ioeludimg the sign bit) md add it la tk minuend (including tbe sign hit). A c m y o r dthe hcrlgn-bit puatron is discarded.

This pmeedun is adopted because a subtraction operation can be changed to an addition o p t i o n if the sign of the subtrahend is changed, as is demonstrated by the following relationship:

But changing a pasitive n u m b to a oegative number is easily d m by taking the 2's complement ofthe posi!ive n u m k The reveae is also true, because the cmnplement of a negative number in complement form pmduces the equivalent positive number.

16 elements requires a four-bit code. The bit combination of an n-bit code is de&mhed h m the count in binary from 0 to 2" - 1. Each element must be assigned a unique binary bit combina~on,and no two elements can have the same value; otherwise. the c d e assignment will be ambiguous, Although the minimum number of bits required to code 2" distinct quantities is n, thm is no maximum number of bits that may be used for a binary code. For example, tbe 10 decimal digits can be coded with 10 bits, and each decimal digit can be assigned a bit combination of nine 0's and a 1. In t h i s particular binary code, the digit 6 is assigned the bit combination 0001000000.

Although the binary number system is the most natural system for a computer, most people are more accustomed to the decimal system. One way to resolve tbis difference is to convert decimal numkrs to binary, perform all arithmetic calculatims in binary, and then convert the binary results back to decimal. This method requires that we store decimal numbers in the computer so that they can l x converted to binary. Since the computer can accept only binary values, we must represent the decimal digits by means of a code that contains 1's and 0's. It is also possible to perform the arithmetic operations directly on dwimal numbers when they are stored in the computer in coded form. A binary code will have some unassigned bit combinations if the number of elements in the set is not a multiple power of 2. The 10 decimal digits form such a set. A binary code that distinguishes among 10 elements must contain at least four bits, but 6 out of the 16 possible combinations remain unassigned. Different binary codes can be obtained by arranging four bits into 10 distinct combinations. The code most c o m o d y used for the decimal digits is the straight binary assignment listed in Table 1.4.This scheme is called binary-coded &chul and is commonly referred to as BCD.Other decimal codes are possible and a few of them are pre sented later in this section.

(185)10 = (0001 l000OIOl)aco = (IOl1IWL)~ The BCD value has 12 bits to encode the characters of the decimal value, but the equivalent binary number needs only 8 bits. It is obvious h t the reprereotatian of a BCD number needs more bits than its equivalent binary value. However. t h e is an advantage in the me of decimal numbers, because computer input and output dam am generated by people who use thedeci d system. It is imporrant to realize that BCD numbers are decimal numbers and not binary numbers, although they me bits in theirrepresentation. The only difference between a decimal number and BCD is that decimals are written with the symbols 0. 1.2, ..., 9 and BCD numbers use the binary code 0000. W01.0010. ... 1001. Ihe decimal value is exactly the same. Decimal LO is represented in BCD with eight bits a 0001 0000 and deeimal I5 as W0I 0101. The caresponding b-' values are 1010 and 1111 and have only four bi-.


BCO Addltlon Consider Ihe addition of nu0 decimal digits in BCD. togctha with a possible carry fmm a previous less significant pair of digits. Since each digit doer not exceed 9. the sum cannot be grearcrthan9 9 + I = 19, withthe I being apnviouscarry. Suppose wesddtheBCDdigiu as if they were binary numbers. Then the binary rum will produce a result in the range from 0 to 19. In binary, this mnge will be fmm 0000 LO 10011, but in BCD, it is from 0000 to I 1001. with the first (i.e.. leftmost) 1 k i n g s e q and the next four bitrbeingtheBCD sum. When the hioary sum is equal to or less than 1001 (without a carry), the comsponding BCD digit ir correct. However,when the binary sum is p a r e r rhan or equal to 1010, the result is an invalid BCD digit. The additionof 6 = (0110)2 to Ule binary sumconvertsit to the comctdigit and alro produces a carry as required. This is becaurc a c a y in the most significant bit p o b tion of the binary rum and a decimal carry differ by 16 - 10 = 6. Consider the following three BCD additions:


4 +59

IW0 1001 10001 +0110 IOlll

In each care, the two BCD digits arc added as if they were two binary numbers. If lhe binmy rum is greater than or equal la 1010. we add 01 10 to obtain the comet BCD sum and s carry. In the fint example, the sum is equal to 9 and is the correct BCD sum. In the second example.


Chapter 1 Digital Systems and Binary Numbers

the binary sum produces an invalid BCD digit. The addition of 0110 produces the correct BCD sum,OO1O he., the number 21, and a carry. In the third example, the b i i sum pdwes a carry. This condition occurs when the sum is greater than or equal to 16.AIthough the other four bits are less than 1001, the binary sum requires a correction because of the carry, Adding 0110, we obtain the required BCD sum 0111 (i.e.,the number 7) and a BCD carry, The addition of two n-digit unsigned BCD n u m b follows the same prwdure. Consider the addition of 184 t 576 = 760 in BCD:


Binarysum Add 6 BCD sum

1 184 1000 0100 0111 0110 +576 10000 1010 0110 0110 - 0111 0110 0000 760

'1 0b01 +0101 0111


The fmt, least significant pair of BCD digits produces a BCD digit sum of 0000 and a carry for the next pair of digits.The second pair of BCD digits plus a previous carry pruducm a digit sum of 0110 and a cany for the next pair of digits. The third pair of digits plus a carry p d u e s a binary sum of 0111 and does not require a corntion.

The representation of signed decimal numbers in BCD is similar to the repreamtation of signed numbers in binary. We can use either the familiar signed-magnitude system or the signedcomplement system.The sign of a decimal number is usually represented with four bits to conform to the four-bit code of the d w b d digits. It is customary to designate a plus with four 0's and a minus with the BCD equivalent of 9, which is 1001. The signd-magnitudesystem is seldom used in computers.The signed-complement system can be either the 9's or the 10's complement, but the 10's complement is the one most often used. To obtain the 10's complement of a BCD number, we first take the 9's complement and then add 1to the least significant digit. The 9's complement is calculated from the subtraction of each digit born 9. The procedures developed for the signed-2's-complement system in the previous section also apply to the gigmd-10's-complementsystem for decimal numbers. Addition is done by summing all digits, including the sign digit, and discarthe end carry. This operation assumes that all negative numbers are in 10's-complement form. Consider the addition (+375) (-240) = 135, done in the signed-complementsystem:



The 9 in the lehost position of the second number represents a minus,and 9760is the 10's complement of 0244.The two numbers are added and the end carry is discarded to obtain +135. Of course,the decimal numbers inside the computer, including the sign digits, must be in BCD. The addition is done with BCD digits as described previously.

Section 1.7 Binary Codes


The subtraction of decimal numbers, either unsigned or in the signed-10's-complement svstem. is the same as in the binarv care: W e the 10's comnlement of the subtrahend and add rlto the m r n d Many cornpunk have s p 8 . d bardware ;o perform anUunelie ualeulatloos dimUy with decimal n u m b in HCl, lk user of the computer can specify plwogrammed iosmrtims to prfam the arilhnvtie opratinn witb d e c i d numberr dimly. without having to convert them to binary.

The 2421 and the excess-3 codes are examples of self-complemmhg Such & have tbe property that the 9's complement of a d e c b d number is OM directly by changing 1's to 0's and 0's to 1's (i.e,,by komp1emenlh.g each bit in the pattern). For example, decimal 395 is represented in the excess-3 code as 0110 1D l O Im.The 9's complement of 6M is represented as 1001 00110111, which is obtained h p 1 y by complemmhgeach bit of h e code (as with the 1's complement of binary numbers). The excess3 code has been used in some older computers because of its self-complementing proprty. Excess-3 is an unweighted code in which each coded cumbid011is obtained from the correspondingbinary value plus 3. Note that BCD code is not self-complemeflting.

The advantage of tbe Gray code over the stmight binary number sequence is that only we bit in the code group changes in going one n u m b to the next. For example, in going from 7 to 8, the Gray code changes from O1OO to 1100. M y the first bit changes, from 0to 1: the other b e bits mmain the sama By contrast, with biaary numbers the change from 7 to 8 will be from 0111 to 1000, which causes dl four bits to change values.

The shaft is partitioned into segments, and each segment is assigned a number. If adjacent segments are made to cornspond with the Gray-code squence, ambiguily is eliminated belween the angle of the shah and the value encaded by the senror.

An alphanumeric character set is a set of elements that includes the 10 d a d digis, the 26letvrr of the alphabet, and a numberof special characm. Such a act conlains between 36 and 64 elements if only capilal letan arc included, or between 64 and 128 elements if both uppercase and lowercase letters are included. In the first case, we need a binary code of six bits. andin the second, we need a binary code of seven bits. The standard binary code for the alphanvmwic characten is the American Standad Code fw lnfwmation Interchange (ASCII). which uses seven bits to code 128 chsracters. as shown in Table 1.7.

ASQI is a seven-bit code, but most computers rnanipulm an eiat-bit quantity as a single unit called a byte. Therefore, ASCII characters most often are stored one per byte.

Enor-DetMlng Code To detect e m n in data communication and processing, an eighth bit is sometimes added to the ASCU character to indicate i b padry. Aparily bir is an exw bit included with a message lo make the total number of 1's either even or odd. Consider the following two characters and their even and odd parity:

ASCII A = IWOOOl ASCII T = 1 0 1 0 1 ~

With odd parity 1IWOOOL OiOlOlOO

In each care, we inserr an extra bit in the leftmort position of the code to produce an even number of 1's in the character for even parity or an odd number of 1's in the character for odd parity. In general, one or the other parity is adapted, with even parity being mare common. The parit) bnt is helpful in dcvctinp crron duringthe tr~nsmiss~onoiinfomation fmmone laauon to another.

The information stored in a cell is 1 when the cell is in one slabie state and 0 when the cell is in the otbn stable state.

Registerr A register is a group of binary cells.A register with n cells can store any discrete q h t y of information that contains n bits. The state of a register is an n-tuple of 1's and O's, with each bit designating the state of one cell in the registet. The content of a regism is a Punctionofthe interpretation given to the information stored in it. Consider, for example, a 16-bitregister with the following binary cormtent:

A register with 16 cells can be in one of 216possible states. If one assumes that the content of h e register represents a binary integer, then the register can store any binary number from 0 to 216 - 1. For the particular example shown, the content of the register is the binmy equivalent of the decimal n u m h 50,12 1. If one assumes instead that the register stores alphanumeric characters of an eight-bit code, then the content of the register is any two meaningful characters. For the ASClI code with an even parity placed in the eighth most significant bit position. the register contains the two characten C (the h o s t eight bits) and I (the rightmost eight bits), If, however, one interprets the'content of the register to be four decimal digits represented by a four-bit code, then the content of the register is a four-digit decimal number. In the excess3 code, the register holds the decimal number 9,096.The content of the register is meaningless in BCD, because the bit combination 1100 is not assigned to any decimal digit. From this example, it is clear that a register can store discrete elements of information and that the same bit configuration may be interpreted differently for different types of data. ..

A digital system is characterized by its registers and the components that perform data processing. In digital sy stems, a register transfer operation is a basic operation that consists of a transfer of binary information h m one set of regbters into another set of registers. The transfer may be direct, from one register to another, or may pass through data-processing circuits to perform an operation. Figure 1.1 illustrates the transfer of infomation among registers and demonstrates pictorialIy the transfer of binary information from a keyboard into a register in the memory unit. The input unit is assumed to have a keyboard, a control circuit, and an input register. Each time a key is struck, the control circuit enters an equivalent eight-bit alphanumeric character code into the input register. We shall assume that the code used is the ASCII code with an odd-parity bit. The information b m the input register is transferred into the eight least significant ce1Is of a processor register. After every transfer, the input register is cleared to enable tbe control to insert a new eight-bit cade when the keyboard is struck again. Each eight-bit character transferred to the processor register is preceded by a shift of the previous character to the next eight cells on its left.When a transfer of four characters is completed, the processor register is W1,and its contents are transferred into a memory register.The content stored in the memory register shown in Fig. 1.1 came from the transfer of the characters "J," "0.'" "H," and " N after the f a n appropriate keys were struck - ,I

B I N A R Y LOGIC Binary logic deals with variables that take on two discrete values and with o p d o n a hat assume logical meaning. The two values the variables assume may be called by Merent name (true andfalse, yes and no,etc.), but far our p v , it is convenient to thiak in k m s of bits and assign the values 1 and 0.The binary logic introduced in this sation is equivalent to an algebra called Boolean algebra. The formal presentation of Bwlem algebra is cwered in more detail in Chapter 2. The purpose of this section is to i n d u c e Baolean algebra in a heuristic manner and relate it to digital logic circuits and binary signals.

Logic gates are electronic circuits that operate on one or more input signals to produce an output signal. Electrical signals such as voltages or currents exist as analog signals having values over a given range, say, 0 to 3 V,but in a digital system are interpreted to be either of two recognizable values, 0 or 1. Voltage-operatedlogic circuits respond to two separate voltage levels that represent a binary variable equal to logic I or logic 0. For example, a particular digital system may define logic 0 as a signal equal to 0 volts and logic 1 as a signal equal to 3 volts. In practice, each voltage level has au acceptable range, as shown in Fig. 1.3. The input terrninds of digital circuits accept binary signals within the allowable range and respond at the output terminals with binary signals that fall within the specified range. The intermediate region between the allowed regions is crossed only during a state transition. Any desired information for computing or c o n h l can be operated on by passing binary signals through various combinations of logic gates, with each signal represeflting a particular binary variable. The graphlc symbols used to designate the b e e types of gates are shown in Fig. 1.4. The gates are blocks of hardware that produce the equivalent of logic-1 or logic-0 output signals
