Combinational Circuits: Summary A circuit element is a combinational device if: 1. it has one or more digital inputs 2. it has one or more digital outputs 3. there is a functional specification that gives the value of each output for every possible combination of valid input values 4. there is a timing specification that gives an upper bound on the required time for the device to compute the specified output values from an arbitrary set of stable, valid input values Combinational Circuits: Summary A set of interconnected elements is a combinational device if: 1. each circuit element is a combinational device 2. every input is connected to exactly one output or to some vast supply of 0s and 1s 3. the circuit contains no directed cycles3....
