Bitwise Logic Operations
|p||q||(p AND q)|
and is implemented using the Boolean circuit
If eight of these Boolean circuits are used in parallel, then two eight-bit numbers,
1111 0101 1100 0011
when fed into the eight AND gates, result in one eight-bit output:
The operation is carried out as shown in Figure 10-1. In hex notation, the bytes F5H and C3H used as inputs to a one-byte AND operation have produced the output C1H. This operation can be applied ...
