How to Multiply in a Wet Climate, Part 2: Design Details104
In last month's article, we discussed microprocessor arithmetic and how an 8 by 8 bit tow's complement multiplier could do it faster. Specific examples, in Motorola M6800 assembly language, showed how multiple precision arithmetic and quick matrix addressing could use harware multiplication. We gave a logical block diagram of a circuit which would make the product (formed by a multiplier array) much easier to use. Ths month's article contains details needed to construct and fully test a hardware multplier for the SwTPC 6800 system using the TRW MPY-8AJ and eleven SSI and MSI TTL chips.
