Experiment 12 - The Full Adder

Consider the second digit of the binary number. First the inputs A and B are added. Furthermore the transfered information from the first digit, the Carry Bit, has to be added. Hence the circuit gets a third input, the Carry-IN CI. Such a logical unit is called a full adder.

CI A B Q CO
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 1 1 0
0 1 0 1 0
0 1 1 0 1
1 0 0 1 0
1 0 1 0 1
1 1 0 0 1
1 1 1 1 1

There are many ways to build a full adder using logic gates. The circuit used here consists basically of two half adders. As a result the logic can be traced through the circuit more easily.
