(a) Convert the base-10 number 53 to binary.
(b) Convert the binary number 0 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 to hexadecimal.
(c) Convert the octal number 3 7 1 5 2 6 3 4 7 7 to hexadecimal.
(d) Multiply the two hexadecimal numbers AB and CD. Do not convert to base 10 Þrst.
(e) Subtract the following two (unsigned) octal numbers.

2. A combinational circuit is used to control a 6-segment LED (Light Emitting Diode) display of directional
and other symbols as shown below. (1000 represents the ‘+’ sign, 1001 represents the ‘-’ sign, 1010
represents a diamond and 1011 represents all segments illuminated). The circuit has four binary
inputs x1 , x2 , x3 , and x4 , and six binary outputs a, b, c, d, e and f. The string x3 x2 x1 x0 represents
one of the 12 symbols. (For example, 0101 represents the direction ‘SW’.) The circuit works as follows.
If 0011 is input (representing the direction ‘SE’), then b = c = d = 1 indicating that the corresponding
segments are to be illuminated whereas a = e = f = 0 indicating these segments are to be darkened
(a) If 0100 is input (direction ‘S’), determine each of the following outputs.

Use exactly four three-state buffer gates and a single 2 − to − 4 decoder (equipped with an enable
input) to implement this circuit.
8. A certain register A has four control lines numbered c1 , c2 , c3 and c4 . The register is 8 bits wide, and
each bit is constructed with a T ßip-ßop. Assume that only one of the control lines can be equal to 1
at any one time. The input to the ith bit (that is, the ith T ßip-ßop) of the register is given by the
following formula.
¡
¢
(the notation A0i means current content)
TAi = c1 A0i + c2 + c3 xi + c4 A0i ⊕ Ii
The signal xi is deÞned as follows: x0 = 1 and for i ≥ 1, xi = xi−1 A0i−1 . The quantity Ii is the ith bit
of an external data source. Let I denote the vector of these data bits. That is, I = (I7 , I6 , . . . , I0 ).
(a) Draw the diagram for bit 0 of the register.
(b) What happens at the occurrence of a clock pulse when ci = 0 for every i.
(c) Fill in the blanks with one of the choices on the right.

(a) A
(load complement of A)
c2 : A ←
(b) I

c3 : A ←
(c) 0

c4 : A ←
(d) A + 1
(increment A)
9. A certain RAM has 8M words each having 32 bits.
(a) How many address bits are needed to read and write a RAM of this size?
(b) How wide (in bits) are the Data In and Data Out lines on this RAM?
(c) What is the memory capacity of this RAM in bytes?
(d) Suppose the RAM is to be constructed out of 128K × 32 RAM chips. How many chips are needed
to build the RAM?
(e) What size decoder is needed to generate the Chip Select signals to the rows of chips in the RAM?
10. Suppose that A and B are n-bit registers. Consider the following register transfer statements.
yz : B ← A
yz 0 : B ← A ⊕ C
(load B with A)
(load B with A exclusive-NOR C)
Construct the hardware to implement these two register-transfer statements. Use three-state buffer
gates as part of your design. Make sure to label all your wires and components.
11. Consider the ALU described in class. For each operation listed below, write down the appropriate
ALU control signals that are needed to implement that operation. For example, if the operation is
4
AC ← AC + bus, the correct answer would be 1010XX0. If the operation cannot be implemented in
one clock period, write ‘NOT POSSIBLE’.
Operation
AC ← AC
AC ← 0
AC ← AC − bus
AC ← AC + 1
AC ← bus
AC ← AC ⊕ bus
AC ← AC ∧ bus

12. For each of the following operations, formulate a sequence of instruction codes for that operation. For
example, for the operation ‘zero out the R register’, a correct answer would be 0BH (clear AC) followed

13. Answer the following questions about the computer designed in class.
(a) The bus is 16 bits wide, but some of the registers, like DR, are only 8 bits wide.
register is placed on the bus, what bus lines are used?

(b) Write a boolean expression for the signal T RBU S that enables/disables the buffer gates connected
to the outputs of the T R register.
(c) Write a boolean expression for ARLOAD that controls when the AR register is loaded.
