#### Transcript Combinational Circuits

```Logic circuits for digital systems may be

Combinational Circuits

Sequential Circuits

Consists of logic gates whose outputs at any
time are determined by combining the values
of the applied inputs using logical operations.

Decoders

Counters

Combinational circuit with a number of
output lines, only one of which is asserted at
any time, dependent on the pattern of input
lines.

n inputs and 2n outputs.
1
2
3
21 = 2
22 = 4
23 = 8
Converts binary information from the n coded
inputs to a maximum of 2n unique outputs.

Larger decoders from small decoders with
enable inputs.
 3-8 line decoder from 2-4 line decoders
 6-64 line decoder from 4-16 line decoders

3-to-8-line decoder constructed from two 2to-4-line decoders
 The MSB is connected to the enable inputs
 if A2=0, upper is enabled; if A2=1, lower is enabled.

Combinational logic circuit which performs
reverse of decoder functions.

Accepts an active level on one of its inputs
and converts to a coded output.

The process of converting familiar symbols or
numbers to a coded format is called
encoding.


Priority Function.
Highest priority takes precedence.
