ALUs in CircuitMaker

  1. Feb 2, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    You must construct the following layout :


    and simulate it, additionally using switches and lights for data input and display.

    The simulation must carry out the operation X + Y -> X.

    Produce a table of control switch settings which carries out the operation described.

    I'm guessing that X, Y, A should be gates, and O should be the output? Do you think that's correct? Also for the ALU, how does that work? I've never used ALUs in CircuitMaker before so I'm not quite sure how they work.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    N/A, just asking a few questions

    X, Y, A, O are registers few bits
