325 MULDIV unit (4-bit signed/unsigned)

325 : MULDIV unit (4-bit signed/unsigned)

How it works

Combinational multiply / divider unit (no clock in use)

Multiplier (signed/unsigned) Method uses Ripple Carry Array as ‘high speed multiplier’ Setup operation mode bits MULDIV=0 and OPSIGNED(unsigned=0/signed=1) Setup A (multiplier 4-bit) * B (multiplicand 4-bit) Expect result P (product 8-bit)

Divider (signed/unsigned) Method uses Full Adder with Mux as ‘combinational restoring array divider algorithm’. Setup operation mode bits MULDIV=1 and OPSIGNED(unsigned=0/signed=1) Setup Dend (dividend 4-bit) / Dsor (divisor 4-bit) Expect result Q (quotient 4-bit) with R (remainder 4-bit)

Divider has error bit indicators that take precedence over any result. If any error bit is set then the output Q and R should be disregarded. When in multiplier mode error bits are muted to 0. No input values can cause an overflow error so the bit is always reset.

The project was sketched out and tested with logisim-evolution https://github.com/logisim-evolution/logisim-evolution then exported direct to verilog (as if it was for a FPGA development board using the built in process).

How to test

Setup the input state expect immediate output (after gate propagation delays).
