Unformatted text preview: 3. Report The report should be concise and include the following components (in a font above 9 pt): i) a description of your adder architecture (provide a block diagram or schematic). (1 page) (10%) ii) a careful analysis critical path (slowest path) in the adder. Provide a calculation of the mini-mum clock period. (2 pages) (20%) iii) if you find a critical path, detail how you can make the circuit faster. Providing a before/after picture of the improvement lends to creativity in the maximizing speed (1 page) (20%) iv) simulations that demonstrate the correct operation. I will provide you with a reference number generator. Please show the 8b output from the accumulator and the carry-out pin that indicates overflow. (1 page) (20%) v) Quality of report (30%) (i.e. written content, legibility, neatness, schematics) 10 points will be added to the fastest accumulator....
