Suggest 1 possible wiki link and 2 possible backlinks for "arithmetic and logical unit"[edit]

This comment has been moved here from Talk:arithmetic and logical unit.

An automated Wikipedia link suggester has some possible wiki link suggestions for the "arithmetic and logical unit" article:

  • Can link carry-out: ...es, which can be used to indicate cases such as carry-in or [[Take-out|carry-out]], overflow, or other statuses....

Additionally, there are some other articles which may be able to linked to this one (also known as "backlinks"):

  • In Combinatorial logic, can backlink arithmetic logic unit: ...natorial and sequential logic. For example, the part of an [[arithmetic and logical unit|arithmetic logic unit]], or [[ALU]], that does mathematical calculations is made fr...
  • In List of 7400 series integrated circuits, can backlink Arithmetic Logic Unit: ...: 9-bit Odd/Even Parity Generator and Checker *74181: 4-bit [[arithmetic and logical unit|Arithmetic Logic Unit]] and Function Generator...

Notes: The article text has not been changed in any way; Some of these suggestions may be wrong, some may be right.

Rationale for renaming the article to "arithmetic logic unit"[edit]

The most common terms for ALU in the computer science literature seems to be "arithmetic logic unit" and "arithmetic-logic unit"; hence the recent renaming/move from "arithmetic and logical unit". Double redirects have been removed. --Wernher 16:09, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)

74AS888 Information[edit]

{I am new to Wiki; Not sure where or how to ask so here goes.} I could not help but notice that the article includes a photo of the 74AS888 part from TI. I have been trying to find more information on this part with no success. Is anyone aware of where I might more info on this enigmatic part?

What is the size of ALU? F.e. in transistors or logic operations[edit]

It would be useful to specify. For example by specifiing ALU sizes for some processors and-or other schemes which use ALU.

Does anybody know how to find out this info? Pavel Senatorov, developer of programming language Ya (talk) 16:46, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
