Multiple Choice

1 . A "D" flip-flop utilizing a PGT clock is in the CLEAR state. Which of the following input actions will cause it to change states? [Hint] CLK = NGT, D = 0 CLK = PGT, D = 0 CLOCK NGT, D = 1 CLOCK PGT, D = 1 Both a and c

2 . Which statement BEST describes the operation of a negative-edge-triggered D flip-flop? [Hint] The logic level at the D input is transferred to Q on NGT of CLK. The Q output is ALWAYS identical to the CLK input if the D input is HIGH. The Q output is ALWAYS identical to the D input when CLK = PGT. The Q output is ALWAYS identical to the D input.

3 . The circuit that is primarily responsible for certain flip-flops to be designated as edge-triggered is the: [Hint] edge-detection circuit. NOR latch. NAND latch. pulse-steering circuit.

4 . As a general rule for stable flip-flop triggering, the clock pulse rise and fall times must be: [Hint] very long. very short. at a maximum value to enable the input control signals to stabilize. of no consequence as long as the levels are within the determinate range of value.

5 . Determine the output frequency for a frequency division circuit that contains twelve flip-flops with an input clock frequency of 20.48MHz. [Hint] 10.24 kHz 5kHz 30.24kHz 15kHz

6 . An active-HIGH input S-C latch has a 1 on the S input and a 0 on the C input. What state is the latch in? [Hint]

7 . What is one disadvantage of an S-C flip-flop? [Hint] It has no Enable input. It has an invalid state. It has no CLOCK input. It has only a single output.

8 . Which of the following is correct for a clocked D latch? [Hint] The output toggles if one of the inputs is held high. Q output follows the input D when the ENABLE is high. Only one of the inputs can be high at a time. The output complement follows the input when enabled.

9 . Edge-triggered flip-flops must have: [Hint] very fast response times. at least two inputs to handle rising and falling edges. a pulse transition detector. active-low inputs and complemented outputs.

10 . What is the significance of the J and K terminals on the J-K flip-flop? [Hint] There is no known significance in their designations. The J represents "jump," which is how the Q output reacts whenever the clock goes high and the J input is also high. The letters represent the initials of Johnson and King, the co-inventors of the J-K flip-flop. All of the other letters of the alphabet are already in use.

11 . If both inputs of an S-C flip-flop are low, what will happen when the clock goes high? [Hint] An invalid state will exist. No change will occur in the output. The output will toggle. The output will reset.

12 . Which of the following best describes the action of pulse-triggered FF's? [Hint] The clock and the S-C inputs must be pulse shaped. The data is entered on the leading edge of the clock, and transferred out on the trailing edge of the clock. A pulse on the clock transfers data from input to output. The synchronous inputs must be pulsed.

13 . Which of the following is a disadvantage of the S-C master-slave flip-flop? [Hint] The outputs do not change when both inputs are low. There is no complementary output. Data can only be entered on the leading edge of the clock. An invalid output state exists if both inputs are high.

14 . Which of the following is not generally associated with flip-flops? [Hint] Hold time Propagation delay time Interval time Set-up time

15 . The waveforms shown in Figure 5-1 are applied to a gated D latch, which is initially RESET. Which of the areas identified on the Q waveform is incorrect?

[Hint] a b c d

16 . What is another name for a one-shot? [Hint] Monostable Multivibrator Bistable Astable

17 . Given the waveforms for the S-C flip-flop in Figure 5-2, what is wrong with the circuit? [Hint] The Q output should be high at the beginning of the second clock pulse. The IC is defective. When both C and S are high at the same time, the output is unpredictable. Nothing is wrong with the circuit. The outputs should change on the trailing edge of the clock; the clock signal is inverted. The outputs should have toggled on the leading edge of the second clock pulse; the IC is bad.

18 . A gated S-C latch and its associated waveforms are shown in Figure 5-3. What, if anything, is wrong and what could be causing the problem? [Hint] The output is always low; the circuit is defective. The Q output should be the complement of the output; the S and R terminals are reversed. The Q should be following the R input; the R input is defective. There is nothing wrong with the circuit.

19 . Determine which of the output waveforms is correct for the master-slave D flip-flop shown in Figure 5-4.

[Hint] Qa Qb Qc Qd

20 . The 7472 AND-gated master-slave J-K flip-flop is shown in Figure 5-5 with a timing diagram. Examine the output waveform and determine what might be wrong with the circuit. The Q output is initially LOW and the PRESET and CLEAR are high. Determine whether or not a problem exists, and if so, what could be causing the problem.

[Hint] The output is correct; no problem exists. The output is incorrect; J1 is a constant HIGH. The output is incorrect; K3 is a constant LOW. The output is incorrect; Q is shorted to Vcc.

21 . A push-button switch is used to input data to a register. The output of the register is erratic. What could be causing the problem? [Hint] The power supply is probably noisy. The switch contacts are bouncing. The socket contacts on the register IC are corroded. The register IC is intermittent and failure is imminent.

22 . The circuit in Figure 5-6 fails to function; the inputs are checked with a logic probe and the following indications are obtained: C, J1, J2, J3, K1, K2, and K3 are pulsing. Q and CLR are HIGH. Q and PRE are LOW. What could be causing the problem? [Hint] There is no problem. The CLOCK should be held HIGH. The PRE is stuck LOW. The CLR is stuck HIGH.

23 . A positive edge-triggered J-K flip-flop is used to produce a two-phase clock. However, when the circuit is operated it produces erratic results. Close examination with a scope reveals the presence of glitches. What causes the glitches, and how might the problem be corrected? [Hint] The PRESET and CLEAR terminals may have been left floating; they should be properly terminated if not being used. The problem is caused by a race condition between the J and K inputs; an inverter should be inserted in one of the terminals to correct the problem. A race condition exists between the Q and Q outputs to the AND gate; the AND gate should be replaced with a NAND gate. A race condition exists between the CLOCK and the outputs of the flip-flop feeding the AND gate; replace the flip-flop with a negative edge-triggered J-K flip-flop.

24 . Four positive edge-triggered D flip-flops are used to store a 4-bit binary number as shown in Figure 5-7. Determine if the circuit is functioning properly, and if not, what might be wrong. [Hint] The circuit is functioning properly. Q2 is incorrect; the flip-flop is probably bad. The input to flip-flop 3 (D2) is probably wrong; check the source of D2. A bad connection probably exists between FF-3 and FF-4, causing FF-3 not to reset.

25 . A 555 timer is connected for astable operation as shown in Figure 5-8 along with the output waveform. It is determined that the duty cycle should be 0.5. What steps need to be taken to correct the duty cycle, while maintaining the same output frequency?

[Hint] Increase the value of C. Increase Vcc and decrease RL. Decrease R1 and R2. Decrease R1 and increase R2.

26 . In VHDL, in which declaration section is a COMPONENT declared? [Hint] Architecture Library Entity Port map

27 . In VHDL, how many inputs will a primitive JK flip-flop have? [Hint] 2 3 4 5

28 . Which is not an Altera Primitive port identifier? [Hint] clk ena clr prn

29 . In VHDL, how is each instance of a component addressed? [Hint] A name followed by a colon and the name of the library primitive A name followed by a semi-colon and the component type A name followed by the library being used A name followed by the component library number

30 . Which is not a real advantage of HDL? [Hint] Using higher levels of abstraction Tailoring components to exactly fit the needs of the project The use of graphical tools Both 1 and 2

DOWNLOADED FROM: www.freewebs.com\sbalpande\microprocessor CMOS interview questions. 1/ What is latch up? Latch-up pertains to a failure mechanism wherein a parasitic thyristor (such as a parasitic silicon controlled rectifier, or SCR) is inadvertently created within a circuit, causing a high amount of current to continuously flow through it once it is accidentally triggered or turned on. Depending on the circuits involved, the amount of current flow produced by this mechanism can be large enough to result in permanent destruction of the device due to electrical overstress (EOS) 2)Why is NAND gate preferred over NOR gate for fabrication? NAND is a better gate for design than NOR because at the transistor level the mobility of electrons is normally three times that of holes compared to NOR and thus the NAND is a faster gate. Additionally, the gate-leakage in NAND structures is much lower. If you consider t_phl and t_plh delays you will find that it is more symmetric in case of NAND ( the delay profile), but for NOR, one delay is much higher than the other(obviously t_plh is higher since the higher resistance p mos's are in series connection which again increases the resistance). 3)What is Noise Margin? Explain the procedure to determine Noise Margin The minimum amount of noise that can be allowed on the input......

E-Book Plc Programming

...Frederick D. Hackworth, Jr. Table of Contents Chapter 1 - Ladder Diagram Fundamentals Chapter 2 - The Programmable Logic Controller Chapter 3 - Fundamental PLC Programming Chapter 4 - Advanced Programming Techniques Chapter 5 - Mnemonic Programming Code Chapter 6 - Wiring Techniques Chapter 7 - Analog I/O Chapter 8 - Discrete Position Sensors Chapter 9 - Encoders, Transducers, and Advanced Sensors Chapter 10 - Closed Loop and PID Control Chapter 11 - Motor Controls Chapter 12 - System Integrity and Safety Preface Most textbooks related to programmable controllers start with the basics of ladder logic, Boolean algebra, contacts, coils and all the other aspects of learning to program PLCs. However, once they get more deeply into the subject, they generally narrow the field of view to one particular manufacturer's unit (usually one of the more popular brands and models), and concentrate on programming that device with it's capabilities and peculiarities. This is worthwhile if the desire is to learn to program that unit. However, after finishing the PLC course, the student will most likely be employed in a position designing, programming, and maintaining systems using PLCs of another brand or model, or even more likely, many machines with many different brands and models of PLC. It seems to the authors that it would be more advantageous to approach the study of PLCs using a general language that provides a thorough knowledge of programming......

...stack pointer and the program counter. They are described briefly as follows. The 8085/8080A has six general-purpose registers to store 8-bit data; these are identified as B,C,D,E,H, and L as shown in the figure. They can be combined as register pairs - BC, DE, and HL - to perform some 16-bit operations. The programmer can use these registers to store or copy data into the registers by using data copy instructions. Accumulator The accumulator is an 8-bit register that is a part of arithmetic/logic unit (ALU). This register is used to store 8-bit data and to perform arithmetic and logical operations. The result of an operation is stored in the accumulator. The accumulator is also identified as register A.

...Most I/O devices interface to the CPU in a fashion quite similar to memory. Indeed, many devices appear to the CPU as though they were memory devices. To output data to the outside world the CPU simply stores data into a "memory" location and the data magically appears on some connectors external to the computer. Similarly, to input data from some external device, the CPU simply transfers data from a "memory" location into the CPU; this "memory" location holds the value found on the pins of some external connector. An output port is a device that looks like a memory cell to the computer but contains connections to the outside world. An I/O port typically uses a latch rather than a flip-flop to implement the memory cell. When the CPU writes to the address associated with the latch, the latch device captures the data and makes it available on a set of wires external to the CPU and memory system (see Figure 7.1). Note that output ports can be write-only, or read/write. The port in Figure 7.1, for example, is a write-only port. Since the outputs on the latch do not loop back to the CPU's data bus, the CPU cannot read the data the latch contains. Both the address decode and write control lines must be active for the latch to operate; when reading from the latch's address the decode line is active, but the write control line is not. Figure 7.1 A Typical Output Port Figure 7.2 shows how to create a read/write input/output port. The data written to the output port......

A Co-Evolution Model of Competitive Mobile Platforms

...2011; accepted 18 May 2011 Abstract A model depicting competitive technoeconomics of business structures specific to mobile-platforms is developed. The underlying co-evolution of large, competing enterprises of mobile-platforms that face customerchurning due to application-preferences and pricing structures in the deregulated ambient is viewed in the perspectives of nonlinear logistic systems akin to that of biological ecosystems. Relevant considerations are decided by and embodied with several stochastically-interacting subsystems. Hence, the temporal dynamics of competition/co-evolution of known competitors in the mobile-platform market, like Android, Symbian and iPhone is depicted by a novel model posing dichotomy of prey-predator flip-flops in the market; and, an asymptotic projection of ex post computations of underlying technoeconomics into the ex ante region would correspond to futuristic forecasts on the performance of test platforms. Further, computed results are exemplified with a sample calculation and associated sensitivity details.

Techniques for Copying with Soft Errors

...computer architecture like failure in operating system and other hardware issues raised in our daily lives among them there is a soft error issues which is also called as semiconductor transient faults. This fault occurred by the cosmic rays or substrate alpha particle that can also have possibly corrupt the user data. A soft error event causes enough of a charge disturbance to reverse or flip the data state of a memory cell, register, latch, or flip-flop. [1] The error is called “soft” because the circuit/device itself is not permanently damaged by the radiation; if new data are written to the bit, the device will store it correctly. The soft error is also often referred to as a single event upset(SEU). If the radiation event is of a very high energy, more than a single bit maybe affected, creating a multi-bit upset (MBU) as opposed to the more likely single bit upset[2] background 1 Alpha particles and cosmic rays Alpha particles are emitted by the reaction of trace uranium and thorium impurities are added into the materials and shown cause of soft errors in DRAM devices.
