**Basic Theory:**

An
arithmetic circuit is a logic circuit that performs basic arithmetic operations
like addition, subtraction, increment, decrement and transfer operations using
a single combinational circuit. It uses multiplexers and full adders to do so.
The selection bits, along with an additional input at 2 and 3 input positions
of the multiplexer, determine the type of operation to be done on the input
data. This is further clarified by the function table below. As usual, a 4-bit
arithmetic circuit works with 4-bit data.

hi, i appreciate your effort in explaining this, i understood is well too, so thank you.

ReplyDeletebut there is a minor mistake in your truth table i suppose, the inputs for (0 1 0) and (0 1 1) should be ~(B) i.e compliment of "B".
