Logic Behind Lookahead Adder Problem Understand and explain the logic behind the look ahead adder Why is the look ahead adder important what benefit does it have on the adder circuit The look ahead adder has many benefits that allows for faster circuit speed over the full adder The full adder was created in a way that required a delay to find the outcome of the two inputs to see if a carry out was necessary The delay would not be a problem using 2 4 8 or even 16 bit number but when 32 or 64 bit numbers are used the delay growths The solution to this problem was the look ahead adder The idea behind the look ahead adder is that a simple gate can be added that can evaluate previous process and determine if it will carry a 1 or 0 thus eliminating the delay The entire process is trying to branch the input into another logical circuit which will tell the next adder if there is a carry if the process becomes instantaneous then there would be multiple adders working at the same time thus creating parallel processing However the look ahead adder adds five addition gates to tell the next adder if the carry out will be a 1 or 0 Is this the simplest way of doing the problem I agree that the look ahead adder is an easier way but adding four gates seams to me that it would take just as long to finish the process then the full adder The entire process forks the two inputs into OR and AND gates The OR gate then outputs the result to a AND gate in addition to the carry in The point is to see if there will be a carry out Because if either input is 1 and a carry-in is 1 then there is a carry out of 1 and
