How do I develop a minimal NOR circuit that detects overflow by examining the sign bits of two addends (A and B) and their sum (S)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Doesn't this depend on how long the addends A and B are? Is there anyway I can generalize the result to n bit addends?

or perhaps I can just designate one input as 'the carry in', compare the MSB of the two addends and go from there?
