Priority encoder[edit]

I want to add a bit about a priority encoder, but this page needs a bit more explanation that I don't have time to write right now. A priority encoder is an encoder for which some inputs take priority over other inputs. For example, with inputs a, b, c and d, if a is 1, then a priority encoder might disregard the inputs b, c, and d. A priority is assigned to each input so that when two or more inputs are simultaneously active, the input with the highest priority is represented on the output. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Fresheneesz (talkcontribs) 06:58, 13 Mar 2006 (UTC)


I corrected the diagram (one typo, which left one input state undefined) based on http://tams-www.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/applets/hades/webdemos/10-gates/45-priority/priority42.html. This site also gives a basic circuit diagram. It is now on its own page Priority Encoder —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.102.119.35 (talk) 23:26, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Single bit 4 to 2 encoder[edit]

This diagram is complete nonsense and should be removed! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.140.96.21 (talk) 15:49, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

It is moved to priority encoder page, where perhaps it makes more sense. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.102.119.35 (talk) 23:27, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
