Lab 9: Design a Simple 8-Bit ALU
Simple 8-bit ALU
lab covers the design and simulation of an 8-bit ALU.
Methods and Materials
Ideal ADC/DAC Library
The schematic of the ALU was created and simulated using
LTspice. All 4 modes were tested and verified. The layout was then
created and verified using DRC, NCC, and ERC.
Task 1: Create Schematic
The schematic for the ALU was first created.

An 8-bit inverted was also created, along with the layout.

It was then simulated in LTspice.

Task 2: Create and Verify Layout
The layout of the ALU was created.

DRC, ERC, and NCC was run. NCC failed...
This lab detailed the design and simulation of an 8 bit ALU. All verification methods, other than NCC, passed.
