Edit: As this my first question in this site I was a bit confused how to pose the question. Because of the way I had put the question before has made it trouble to understand What is the fastest ...
I am building an 8bit computer from TTL, in regards to the Program Counter, sometimes I may not want it to increment on each clock pulse, with that in mind, how would I instruct it to increment? The ...
I am coming from computer science background and wanting to study process calculus for use in asynchronous circuit design. So, I am looking around the current practice on asynchronous circuits. There ...
I'm curious about how the early handheld video games from the 70's and 80's worked. You know, those small games with a LCD display with "fixed elements" meaning it was hard wired for one (or a small ...
I'm wondering what type of buffers/techniques are typically used for connecting a cpu register(flip flops?) to a cpu bus(data/address/control). Since there are many registers on a single bus, I know ...
I am toying with designing a simple 8-bit CPU out of basic logic components. I have a fairly good idea of how my ALU and registers will interact, but the one thing I feel can use some improvement is ...
It is a known fact that over time processors (or chips) are becoming smaller and smaller. Intel and AMD are in a race for the smallest standards (45nm, 32nm, 18nm, ..). But why is it so important to ...
