An improved version of the original question #2 Open-collector output gates: 2.1 It is common to use a pull-up resistance of ________________ (10 Khoums / 330 ohms) with open- collector gates. 2.2 The design below has a mother board, 4 cards called A, B, C, and D and a special card called S. A, B, C, and D produce signals called RA (Ready), RB , RC , RD . Cards A and B work as a team and have to wait on each other. So we need a signal called TABR (Team A and B are Ready). TABR = RA . RB . Similarly cards C and D work together. TCDR = RC . RD . The special card has to wait until at least one of the two teams get ready. S_GO stands for low-active Special may GO ahead . S_GO = (TABR + TCDR) . You are given this incomplete design and you are asked to finish it. Do not to forget pull-ups! Note: OC stands for open-collector output gate. 2.3 Analysis of the design (what mode of operation it supports and what mode it may not support): 2.3.1 If you pull-out one card, say A_card , of a team, say team AB , what happens to the other card? Will the B_card receive a continuously active TABR signal or will TABR be true if RB is true? ____________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________ A _ c a r d B rd C D M o th e r B oa S O OC D_card RD TCDR G T R
