Binary AdderSubtractorThe Subtraction microoperation can be done easily by taking the 2's compliment of addend bits and adding it to the augend bits. Note: The 2's compliment can be obtained by taking the 1's compliment and adding one to the least significant pair of bits. The 1's compliment can be implemented with inverters, and one can be added to the sum through the input carry.The Arithmetic microoperations like addition and subtraction can be combined into one common circuit by including an exclusiveOR gate with each full adder. The block diagram for a 4bit addersubtractor circuit can be represented as:
