I opened up atook die photos, and reverse engineered its TTL circuitry. The study of computer architecture is often an abstract, paper exercise. Comparing to the ‘ datasheet Nat Semi in my case the logic diagram has the P and G outputs swapped compared to your lovely interactive graphic version.

Many computer CPUs and subsystems were based on the 74ps181, including several historically significant models. You can help by adding to it. In addition, a carry either was generated by bit 1 or propagated from bit 0. This expression yields all 16 Boolean functions, but in a scrambled order relative to the arithmetic functions. I’m describing the with active-high logic, where a high signal indicates 1, as you’d expect.

This chip provided 32 arithmetic and logic functions, as well as carry lookahead for high performance. I’d never seen ECL before and if i have since don’t remember it.


Fairly soon the LSI level bumped up and I never used them again. The chip has a few additional outputs. The carry-in input and the carry-out output let you chain together multiple chips to add longer words. The P and G outputs in my schematic are reversed compared to the datasheet, for slightly complicated reasons. The is still used today in retro hacker projects.

Result and truth table for inputs entered above Select: Principles and Examples PDF. For the ‘s outputs, Propagate must be set for Generate to be meaningful.

There is another explanation of the ‘ here: The next step is to examine how P and G are created when adding an arbitrary Boolean function f A, Bas in the The shiny golden regions are the metal layer, providing the chip’s internal wiring. The previous section showed how the P propagate and G generate signals can be used when adding two values. This may seem impossible: The A and B signals are the two 4-bit arguments.

The circuitry is designed around carry lookahead, generating G and P signals, so the result can be produced in parallel without waiting for carry propagation. There’s actually a system behind the ‘s set of functions: Allard’s Computer Museum Groningen.


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

The chip is important because of its key role in minicomputer history. You could provide an arbitrary 3-operand truth table 8 bitsalong with optionally selecting in the carry chain. Although no longer used in commercial products, the is still referenced 7l4s181 computer organization textbooks and technical papers. While the appears at first to be a bunch of gates randomly thrown together to yield bizarre functions, studying datasgeet shows that there is a system to its function set: C is the carry-in which is inverted.

Retrieved from ” https: The carry-lookahead logic in the is almost identical to the earlier 74LS83 adder chip. It is straightforward to verify that it implements the table above.

I’ve spent some time duplicating the block diagram with individual logic gates and have built up a couple of prototypes! The logic functions are defined in terms of Select inputs as follows: That would be the P, P, P primarily. Thanks for the great write-up! The datasheet for the ALU chip shows a strange variety of operations.
