Low-active signals: 1.1 An unsigned 4-bit comparator produces the following three low-active output signals: However, we needed the following three low-active output signals: Show how to produce these from the outputs of the comparator. Please try to use as few gates as possible. 1.2 Given two unsigned 4-bit comparators with the following low-active output signals, arrive at the needed additional glue logic to compare two 8-bit numbers, X and Y and produce a low-active signal "X greater or equal to Y". . .

Also given are the SOP expressions for F and F . Please fill-in the POS expressions for each of them. 2.3 Logic for driving LED connected in sinking mode: We need to light-up an LED (make it glow) whenever the above function F is a logic "1". Complete the following two implementations by labeling the inputs. 2.4 |I OH | ___________________________________________ ( should be greater than / should be less than / has no relation to ) |I OL |. 2.5 VIL is the _______________ ( minimum/maximum ) acceptable voltage at the ____________ ( output/input ) of a gate for the gate to recognize VIL as a ________________________ ( high enough/low enough ) _______________________ ( input/output ) signal. 2.6 The LH and HL in tpLH and tpHL refer to _______________________________ ( input / output / both input and output / input to output / output to input ) transitions ______________________________ _____________________ ( for all gates / for inverting gates only / for non-inverting gates only ). 2.7 A ___________________________________ ( Schmitt-trigger/Shottky/neither Schmitt-trigger nor Shottky ) input gate is used at the ________________________ ( input/output ) of an add-on card or a card connected through a ribbon cable to remove noise in the signal and also to __________________________________ ( slow down/speedup ) the 1-to-0 and 0-to-1 transitions.
