Digital Adders: Create Adder Units

Digital adders are used in the arithmetic logic units (ALU) that are a fundamental building block of CPUs and GPUs. In this lab, you will design a half adder and a full adder and combine them to form adder units of any bit size.

Create Your Model

You will create a half adder and a full adder using logic gates. These basic adders can then be used to create adder units of any bit size.

Model of a 16-bit adder that adds integers A and B.

Test Your Model

Two 16-bit integers A and B are added to obtain the sum.

Integers A and B of values 12000 and 16000 are added to obtain a sum of 28000.
