What is Combinational Circuits? Combinational Circuits refers to a family of models of computations. in general terms, a combinational circuit is defined as a device taking a number of inputs at one end and producing a number of outputs at the other end.

features combinational circuit is made up of a number of interconnected components arranged in columns called stages. each component can be viewed as a simple processor. It has a constant fan-in----- that is, a constant number of input lines. These lines carry data from the outside world or from a constant number of components in a previous stage. each component also has a constant fan-out-------- that is, a constant number of components in a subsequent stage. each component, having received its inputs, computes a certain function of these inputs in one time unit and produces the result as output. No feedback: no component can be used more than once while computing the circuit’s output for a given input The Size of a combinational circuit is defined as the number of components it uses. The depth is the number of stages in the circuit----- that is, the maximum number of components on a path from input to output. The Width of a circuit is the maximum number of components in a stage. The product of the depth and width provides an upper bound on the size of the circuit.

A memory access unit for the RAM Processor MAU Memory U000 U001 U010 U011 U100 U101 U110 U111 In the RAM, there is one processor and a memory consisting of M locations.the model allows the processor to specify an arbitrary memory location from which it wishes to read or to which it wishes to write. The job of the MAU is to set up a path from the processor to the chosen memory location. a MAU for the RAM can be implemented as a binary tree of switches. The tree’s root is connected to the processor, and each of the leaves to a distinct memory location. The tree has 1+logM stages, numbered 1, 2,..,1+logM, with the root at stage 1. the tree links are assumed to be two-way communication lines, a switch can therefore send or receive a datum to or from one of its children and parents. this MAU has depth O (logM) AND width O (M), since the tree has 2M -1 switches, its size is O(M.)

The model allows each processor to specify an Arbitrary memory location to which it wishes to gain access. several processors are allowed to read from or Write into the same memory location. a MAU for the PRAM creates paths from the processors to the memory Location. Each processor is connected to the root of a binary tree with M leaves numbered 1 to M, and each Memory location U is connected to a binary tree with N leaves numbered 1 to N. the MAU has a width of O(N x M), a depth of O(logM + logN), and a size of O(N x M).

The merging circuit has no Output, take place the data inside. The MAU has a width of O(m+n), a depth of O(logN)+O(log(M+N)), a size of O(NlogN)+O((M+N)log(M+N)).

Sorting Circuits A combinational circuit for solving the sorting problem is called sorting circuit.There are two approaches can be used to design the circuit for the sorting problem. 1. Sorting by merging The sequence to be sorted is divided into two subsequences of equal length. Each of the two subsequences is now sorted recursively, finally, the two sorted subsequences are merged into one sorted sequence. 2. Sorting by splitting the sequence to be sorted is divided into two subsequences of equal length such that each element of the first subsequence is smaller that or equal to each element of second subsequence.this splitting operation is the then applied to each of the two subsequence recursively. when the recursion terminates, the sequence is in sorted order.

Sorting by merging The odd-even Merging circuit Assume to merge tow sorted sequences{x1, x2, …, xm} and {y1, y2, …, ym}, to form a single sorted sequence {z1, z2, …, z2m}. In general, a circuit for merging sequences{x1, x2, …, xm} and {y1, y2, …, ym} is obtained as follows: 1. The odd-indexed elements of the two sequences{x1, x3, …, xm-1} and {y1, y3, …, ym-1} are merged to produce a sorted sequence {u1, u2,…, um}. 2. simultaneously, The even-indexed elements of the two sequences{x2, x4, …, xm} and {y2, y4, …, ym} are merged to produce a sorted sequence {v1, v2,…, vm}. 3. Finally, the output sequence {z1, z2,…, z2m} is obtained from z1=u1, z2m =vm, z2i=min(ui+1, vi), and z2i+1=max(ui+1, vi), for i=1, 2, …, m-1

Each (m/2, m/2)merging circuit uses two (m/4,m/4) merging circuits, followed by a column of (m/2)-1 comparators An (m, m) odd-even merging circuit has the depth of O(logm), the width of O(m), the Size of O(mlogm)
