If you find yourself writing more than a few words or a simple drawing, your answer is probably wrong. Part A (5 points): Using an 8bit 2s complement data type, what is the smallest positive number that generates an overflow when added to itself? Part B (5 points): How many positive integers are represented in a 13bit 2s complement data type? Part C (5 points): Using one or more LC3 instructions, implement a branch if positive (BRp) to an address outside the range of the branch instruction. Assume that the address to which you want to branch is stored in R5. Write your instruction(s) in binary. Note: you may not need all the lines provided below. Address Instruction x3000: ______________________________ x3001: ______________________________ x3002: ______________________________ x3003: ______________________________ Part D (5 points): The current LC3 memory contains a total of 1 Megabit (2 20 bits). If we were to make the memory byteaddressable (a byte is 8 bits) without changing its size, and without changing the size of the instructions (16 bits), how many bits would be necessary in the following registers? MAR IR Name: ____________________________________________ 3 Problem 2 (20 points): Logic Circuits Part A (3 points): Using exactly one logic gate whose inputs are not inverted, draw a logically equivalent circuit to the one pictured below. Part B (3 points): Using exactly one logic gate whose inputs are not inverted, draw a logically equivalent circuit to the one pictured below....
