I looked at this and thought it would be a good way to learn schematic entry. C is the carry-in which is inverted. But, it’s the first oc I thought of when you started listing some of the curious functions the offers. For instance, there will be a carry from bit 0 to bit 1 if P 0 is set i. This page was last edited on 14 Decemberat I’d never seen ECL before and if i have since don’t remember it.

It turns out that there is a rational system behind the operation set: The occupies a historically significant stage between older CPUs based on discrete logic functions spread over multiple circuit boards and modern microprocessors that incorporate all CPU functions in a single component.

IC pinout diagram – Integrated Circuits

P and G are the carry propagate and generate outputs, used for carry lookahead with longer words. Allard’s Computer Museum Groningen. To select a logic operation, the M input is set to 1.

I then played with the old database as well as the financial software that was still on it. The is a series medium-scale integration MSI TTL integrated circuitcontaining the equivalent of 75 logic 7418 [2] and most commonly packaged as a pin DIP.

Underneath the metal, the purplish silicon is doped to form 7181 transistors and resistors of the TTL circuits. So how is the implemented and why does it include such strange operations?


The P and G outputs in my schematic are reversed compared to the datasheet, for slightly complicated reasons. That would have been a box you would have loved, the IFR service monitor. Uc is a decent-sized group of retrocomputing afficionados not fueled by nostalgia alone. The datasheet for the ALU chip shows a strange variety of operations.

Multiple ‘slices’ can be combined for iv large word sizes. I’m describing the with active-high logic, where a high signal indicates 1, as you’d expect. Higher-order carries have more cases and are progressively more complicated.

The P and G labels on the datasheet are for active-low logic, so with active-high, they are reversed. Gordon Bell ; Allen Newell. Many computer CPUs i subsystems were based on theincluding several historically significant models. You can help by adding to it. Click image for full size.

Notify me of new comments via email. The appeared in many lates and earlys minicomputers, will be familiar to generations of EE and CS students as the device they were taught about ALUs on, if can now be found in some home-built retrocomputers.

There are even free Verilog to gcc C compilers around that 741181 auto-generate modular logic testing software source code. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here An ALU is the heart of a microprocessor, performing its operations.

The logic functions are defined in terms of Select inputs as follows: This circuit computes the G generate and P propagate signals for 71481 bit of the ALU chip’s sum.

My earlier article discusses the circuitry in detail, but I’ll include a die photo here since it’s a pretty chip.

These circuits contain interesting, pretty elegant solutions for problems of the day that some see as inspiring. I seem to remember some similar stuff in the high loop of the IFR service monitor, theand had the same one I think.


I opened up atook die photos, and reverse engineered its TTL circuitry. Even though many of the functions are strange and probably useless, there’s a reason for them. Mr Benchoff, please keep these coming! And why are the logic functions and arithmetic functions in any particular row apparently unrelated?

Virtual Machines of the Past and Future “. He explains the function required to perform this operation, and suddenly the unusual extra function makes sense. There’s actually a system behind the ‘s set of functions: In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

Why do s0 and s1 seem backwards?

Explaining The Operation Of The 74181 ALU

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. Principles and Examples PDF. I investigated the chip to find out. The next step is to examine if P and G are created when adding an arbitrary Boolean function f A, Bas in the This is called the Generate case. One of the more famous of these devices is thea cascadable 4-bit arithmetic logic unit, or ALU.

The addition outputs are generated from the internal carries C0 through C3combined with the P and G signals. For example, consider the carry in to bit 2. It implements addition, subtraction, and the Boolean functions you’d expect, but why does it provide several bizarre functions such as “A plus A and not B “?
