BINARY CODED DECIMAL: B.C.D.
• ANOTHER METHOD TO REPRESENT DECIMAL NUMBERS • USEFUL BECAUSE MANY DIGITAL DEVICES PROCESS + DISPLAY NUMBERS IN TENS

IN BCD EACH NUMBER IS DEFINED BY A BINARY CODE OF 4 BITS. *** 8 – 4 – 2 – 1 MOST COMMON CODE 8 – 4 – 2 – 1 CODE INDICATES THE WEIGHT OF EACH BIT 23 – 22 – 21 – 20 E.G. 934 = 1001 0011 0100 9 3 4 FOR EACH DIGIT A BINARY [NORMAL] CODE IS ALLOCATED. OHER REPRESENTATION FORMS ARE 2-4-2-1 AND EXCESS-3

ONLY 0o9 HAVE THE CORRECT BCD CODE. • WE NEED TO CORRECT THE OTHERS

E.G. 19 = 1 9 = 0001 1001 = 11001 THUS, FOR SUMS BETWEEN 10 o 18 MUST SUBTRACT 10 AND PRODUCE A CARRY SUBTRACT 10 = 10102 COMPLEMENT = 0110 >> ADD 2’s

TO ADD TWO DIGITS FOR SUMS >9 WE NEED TO ADD 2’s COMPLEMENT of 1010 TO THE UNCORRECTED RESULT (S’3 S’2 S’1 S’0) CORRECTION IS ALSO NEEDED WHEN A CARRY OUT (C’3) IS GENERATED [NUMBERS 16 o 18] >>>> A DECODER IS REQUIRED TO DETECT WHEN CARRY OUT (CN) TO THE NEXT STAGE IS NEEDED K-MAP FOR CN S’1S’0 S’3S’2

TO IMPLEMENT A 4_BIT BCD ADDER WE NEDD TWO 4-BIT FULL ADDERS, ONE TO ADD TWO 4-BIT BCD NUMBERS AND THE OTHER FULL ADDER TO ADD 2’s COMPLEMENT OF 1010 TO THE RESULT IF CN = 1 ALSO WE NEED 2 AND GATES AND ONE OR GATE TO GENERATE CN B3 A3 B2 A2 B1 A1 B0 A0

BCD SUBTRACTION
9’s COMPLEMENT
THE 9’s COMPLEMENT OF A DECIMAL NUMBER IS FOUND BY SUBTRACTING EACH DIGIT IN THE NUMBER FROM 9 DECIMAL DIGIT 9’s COMPLEMENT

0 1 2 9

9 8 7 0

E.G. 9’s COMPLEMENT of 28 = 99 –28 = 71 9’s COMPLEMENT of 562 = 999 –562 = 437 SUBTRACTION OF A SMALLER DECIMAL NUMBER FROM A LARGER ONE CAN BE DONE BY ADDING THE 9’s COMPLEMENT OF THE SMALLER NUMBER TO THE LARGER NUMBER AND THEN ADDING THE CARRY TO THE RESULT (END AROUND CARRY). Ovidiu Ghita Page 82

Digital Electronics, 2003

WHEN SUBTRACTING A LARGER NUMBER FROM A SMALLER ONE THERE IS NO CARRY AND THE RESULT IS IN 9’s COMPLEMENT FORM AND NEGTIVE. EXAMPLES: (a) +8 -3 5 +8 +6 (1) 4 +1 5 54 78 (1) 32 +1 33 9’s COMP. OF 3

END AROUND CARRY

(b)

54 -21 33

9’s COMP. OF 3
END AROUND CARRY

(c)

15 -28 -13

15 9’s COMP. OF 3 +71 86 o -13

NO CARRY >>> NEGATIVE RESULT 86 – 99 = – 13

BCD SUBTRACTION
RECALL FOR DECIMAL SUBTRACTION: A – B = A + [9’s COMPLEMENT OF B] • SIMILARLY FOR BCD

RULES:
(a) ADD 9’s COMP. OF B TO A (b) IF RESULT > 9, CORRECT BY ADDING 0110 (c) IF MOST SIGNIFICANT CARRY IS PRODUCED [i.e. =1] THEN THE RESULT IS POSITIVE AND THE END ARROUND CARRY MUST BE ADDED. (d) IF MOST SIGNIFICANT CARRY...
