### Which circuit components are used in a pointer? [closed]

For a computer to do basic math, it can use logic gates like AND and OR. These logic gates can be made out of voltage sources and resistors, as seen on Wikipedia. For a computer to do multi-digit ...

### Checking Bitstring for = 0, then set a zero Bit = 1 in ALU

I am trying to model an ALU to implement a shift operation. When the shift operation is done, I should check the result for = 0. If a result = 0 was found, I want to set a single result bit = 1. I was ...

### Controllable rising edge shifting circuit using CMOS

I am building a circuit using CMOS transistors (350n technology) in which I have to delay the rising edge of a pulse but not the falling edge. The circuit I made is the following : And here is the ...

### Is it possible to chain Hall sensors? [closed]

I'm working on a hobby project that is to add sensors to a wooden chess board in order to detect if a piece is on a given square. I'm quite beginner at electronics, only experienced in programming, ...

### Phase shift a square wave

I have an application where I would like to derive a secondary square wave from a primary one but with a continuously variable phase shift. I would like to know if this is possible to achieve in a ...

### Is (BC + AD)<<16 equivalent to (BC << 16) + (AD <<16)?

Is the expression (BC + AD)<<16 equivalent to (BC << 16) + (AD <<16)? From some examples which I tried it seems to be true but not sure at all

### What are the limits to parallel shift registers in electronics (in comparison to optics)?

Brackenbury and Mason in 1988 (https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/0022-3727/21/10S/044) said, on comparing parallel shift registers in electronic and optical computing, 'When implementing such ...

### Arithmetic right shift: a paradox?

So I was asked to perform the simple task of doing a 3-bit arithmetic shift of the number 1101 (-3 in 2's complement notation). Now this is easy and it goes as 1101 -> 1110 -> 1111 -> 1111. ...

### Shifting a vector by a variable amount

Let's say I have a n level tree, where n starts from 0. Each level of the tree has 2^n elements. For the sake of an example, let's say n=4. Since we have 4 levels, we need 4 bits to hold the index of ...

### RISC-V Arithmetic Shift vs Operator "<<<"

I'm new at learning Verilog so some of my practices are based on already existing codes. I was reading the RISC-V implementation of arithmetic shift and didn't quite understand why it's that way when ...

### Why do four cascaded all-pass filters cause a 180° phase shift?

This op-amp all-pass filter is reported to introduce a 90° phase shift at the cutoff frequency of the RC network placed at the + input. (The FET is used as a controlled variable resistor to move the ...

### Question about 74LS164 8-bit serial in parallel out shift register

With the 74LS164 8 bit parallel out serial shift registers, I'm confused about a few things. In the datasheet (page3) on the logic diagram why do they suggest using an active low inverter before the ...

### Can I use a photodiode as a switch for a shift register?

Let's say I have a photodiode, a shift register (74HC595) and a 5V source, and I connect these as: 5V source -- photodiode -- shift register data input. (And other voltages to feed the register ...

### PISO shift register with first input

I have on my board two PISO shift registers in series, giving an output train of 16 bits. The problem is that the order of the bits is reversed compared to what I need. That means, the last input of ...

### I2C pullups for level shifting

If I want a breakout with two sensors on it, one operating at my MCU's voltage (3.3V) and the other requires a drop to 1.8V, do I need two sets of pullup resistors for both voltage lines? Can I do ...
