Introduction: Adder/Subtractor

Picture of Adder/Subtractor

Hello! friends

Welcome to my another Adder and Subtractor project. It's a topic of Digital And Logic Design by Morris Mano (fifth edition) with the help of this you'll know how its work in reality.

So let's get started.

Step 1: Circuit Diagram

Picture of Circuit Diagram

With the help of this diagram we build our Adder/Subtractor project.

Step 2: Materials

Picture of Materials

You'll need

Some pieces of wire

Soldering wire and solder

Vero board

Resistors: (330ohms x 13) and 1k

Ic's: lm7805, 74ls86 and 74ls38 with bases

Switches: spst x 9 and dpst x 1

Led's: red x 9 and yellow x 5

Step 3: Component Placing

Place the components according to diagram on vero board and soldering it.

Step 4: Soldering and Jumper Wires

Picture of Soldering and Jumper Wires

Here it is the soldering and jumper wires.

Step 5: Finish

Picture of Finish

After its look like this.

Step 6: Examples

Picture of Examples

When you push the switch on left side then its work as a adder and on left side as a subtractor you can see on image. I uploaded a video on next step i'm sure it will clear your concept.

Step 7: Video

Thanks for watching.

I hope you guys like it.

great project

can i place your project on my website.

i'm working on a website which is related to electrical projects.

i also mention your name.

plz reply

okay sure

The 74ls38 have only 14pin.What is ic???????

AyaanS1 (author)2015-07-31

circuit diagram is not clear,upload a clear image of it soon

Asadullah Mughal (author)AyaanS12015-08-07

k let me clear you just focus on a diagram lets get started with upper 4 led's (A0, A1, A2 and A3) will be connected with 74ls38

A0 is connecting with the pin 10 of (74ls38)

A1 is connecting with the pin 8 of (74ls38)

A2 is connecting with the pin 3 of (74ls38)

A3 is connecting with the pin 1 of (74ls38)

lower 4 led's (B0, B1,B2 and B3) will be connected with 74ls86

B0 is connecting with the pin 2 of (74ls86)

B1 is connecting with the pin 5 of (74ls86)

B2 is connecting with the pin 10 of (74ls86)

B3 is connecting with the pin 14 of (74ls86)

now let's talk about the jumper who's connected with IC to IC

(74ls86) pin no 6 connected with (74ls38) pin no 7

(74ls86) pin no 11 connected with (74ls38) pin no 16

(74ls86) pin no 13 and (74ls38) pin no 5 connected with +ve terminal of 9 volt battery and other connections are shown in a diagram clearly.

I hope it will help you.

AyaanS1 it will cleared your concept

Asadullah Mughal (author)AyaanS12015-08-03

AyaanS1 bro i'll send you later when i'm free. In mean while try to understand.

alcantara97 (author)2015-08-03

good day sir. i just would like to ask how to connect the circuit into the ic 74ls38, which has 14pins because in your finish project or circuit it has a 16pin 74ls38. i am just a newbie sir with digital electronics and i want to build this one,,, so please could you help me sir. thank you sir.

alcantara97 i'll give you a suggestion you just buy these two ic's 74ls86 and 74ls38 and build the same one.

Try a 74ls381.

Hmmm it's good idea peabody1929

Paulosutty (author)2015-07-25

Thanks. Great idea! Keep it UP!

Gugoo (author)2015-07-25

Great idea! Electronic enthusiasts

Asadullah Mughal (author)Gugoo2015-07-27

thanks Gugoo

Paulosutty (author)2015-07-25

Is it easy to use bread board?

Gugoo (author)Paulosutty 2015-07-25

i think so .but...a bit burdensome.

Paulosutty of course

AlexFW (author)2015-07-24

This is a cool project, but it's a little hard to follow the wiring diagram/soldering board layout. I would put it into Fritzing or 123d circuits and share the link.

Asadullah Mughal (author)AlexFW2015-07-25

AlexFW follow the circuit diagram it's not difficult. If you having in trouble don't worry i'm ready to help you.

Asadullah Mughal (author)AlexFW2015-07-25

Yeah AlexFW

It's not so difficult i attempted on my first try trust me.
