2 Functions and Functional Blocks The functions considered are those found to be very useful in design Corresponding to each of the functions is a combinational circuit implementation called a functional block . In the past, many functional blocks were implemented as SSI, MSI, and LSI circuits. Today, they are often simply parts within a VLSI circuits.

4 Multiple-bit Rudimentary Functions Multi-bit Examples: A wide line is used to represent a bus which is a vector signal In (b) of the example, F = (F 3 , F 2 , F 1 , F 0 ) is a bus. The bus can be split into individual bits as shown in (b) Sets of bits can be split from the bus as shown in (c) for bits 2 and 1 of F. The sets of bits need not be continuous as shown in (d) for bits 3, 1, and 0 of F. F (d) 0 F 3 1 F 2 F 1 A F 0 (a) 0 1 A 1 2 3 4 F 0 (b) 4 2:1 F(2:1) 2 F (c) 4 3,1:0 F(3), F(1:0) 3 A A

5 Selecting of data or information is a critical function in digital systems and computers Circuits that perform selecting have: A set of information inputs from which the selection is made A single output A set of control lines for making the selection Logic circuits that perform selecting are called multiplexers Selecting can also be done by three-state logic or transmission gates Selecting

6 Multiplexers A multiplexer selects information from an input line and directs the information to an output line A typical multiplexer has n control inputs (S n 1 , … S 0 ) called selection inputs , 2 n information inputs (I 2 n 1 , … I 0 ), and one output Y A multiplexer can be designed to have m information inputs with m < 2 n as well as n selection inputs
