1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Design a 4 input priority encoder with a 4 to 16 decoder and a 8 to 1 multiplexer. 2. Relevant equations Priority encoder is where when the highest priority bit is equal to a logical "1", then the rest of the lower priority input are ignored. 3. The attempt at a solution For the MUX design, since we can only use a 8 to 1 MUX, means we'll have to use at least 2 of them. But I'm not very sure on how to relate the 2 outputs into one. For the decoder design, I'm just confused. Shouldn't a priority encoder be a encoder, while a decoder is used to decode input? Is it possible that the question I have meant something else but a decoder?
