nullArray Posted March 27, 2009 Share Posted March 27, 2009 Has anyone built a processor before? I'm building one now..., I have the registers done and a 32 bit ALU..., it's a pretty complicated, tedious process. It's amazing learning about how all these things work. It really is just a bunch of gates. Some of the concepts are really intangible until you see it happening. For example (dumbed down ((as I understand it, I hope I'm right))), to add, you choose the operation (for mine I think the code is 0001), then the numbers go in and the operation is executed bit by bit and carried out to the next ALU 32 times until the result is outputted. I never would have gotten how it worked prior to doing this. Anywho, here's my ALU wiring diagram. If you've got time, it's worth attempting in Quartus or something. EDIT: No megafunctions except multiplexors!, that would be cheating! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
