Introduction to Computer Engineering TEST 2 This examination is closed book, closed notes. No calculators are allowed. Show all
of your work. State any assumptions you feel you need to make or ask for
clarification. Make sure that your final answer for each question is clearly marked.
I will provide scratch paper if needed. It must be turned in with your name on it. Question

100 Graded Name: __________________________________________________________
Student Number: __________________________________________________ 2/5 1. (10 pts) Find the decimal equivalent of 0xF1 assuming the following:
a. 2. 8-bit signed magnitude representation b. 8-bit two’ complement representation
s (15 pts) Convert 0.87510 to its equivalent IEEE 754 floating point hexadecimal representation.
• X, a floating point binary number, can be expressed by the formula X= –1S*1.F*2E-B

in the table below.
1 bit Exponent
8 bits Fraction
23 bits S = ____________ (in binary)
E = ___________________________________ (in binary)
F = ___________________________________ (in binary)
Hexadecimal representation (IEEE standard) ____________________________________ 3/5 3. (25 pts) A combinational circuit is defined by the following Boolean function:
F(A,B,C) = Σm(0,2,3,7)
a. Complete the truth table for F. ABC

register cell phi1 phi2 Complete the timing diagram. Assume that the initial value of output is one. phi1 phi2 input output 5/5 5. (15 pts) A sequential network has one input (X) and one output (Z). The output is Z=1 iff the
sequence 1111 is detected. Overlapping sequences are accepted. A sample is shown below:
X= 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 0

Complete the state diagram below by adding all required transition arcs with appropriate input and
output annotation. 00 6. 01 10 11 (20 pts) Circle the appropriate response, fill in the blank, or provide a short answer, as indicated.
a. Adding 0x7B to 0x84 results in the following: ( overflow / carry / neither / both ), assuming 8-bit
unsigned binary notation. b. There are two types of sequential circuits. Name one. __________________________________ c. In general, a demultiplexer has ___________ input line(s), _____________ output line(s), and
___________ select line(s). d. Enable inputs are often used in the implementation of circuits. Describe the behavior of a circuit
with an Enable input when:
i. ii. e. Enable is high Enable is low When we say a latch is transparent, what do we mean? ...
