A nand gate becomes ___ gate when used with negative logic ? What is the advantage of cmos over nmos ? What is the advantage of synchronous circuits over asynchronous  circuits ? What is the function of ALE in 8085 ? A voice signal sample is stored as one byte. Frequency range is 16 Hz to  20 Hz. What is the memory size required to store 4 minutes voice signal? What will the controller do before interrupting CPU? In a normalized floating point representation, mantissa is represented  using 24 bits and exponent with 8 bits using signed representation. What is  range ? The stack uses which policy out of the following-- LIFO, FIFO, Round  Robin or none of these ? Where will be the actual address of the subroutine is placed for  vectored interrupts? Give the equivalent Gray code representation of AC2H. What is the memory space required if two unsigned 8 bit numbers are  multiplied ? The vector address of RST 7.5 in 8085 processor is _______.
Ans. 003C (multiply 7.5 by 8 and convert to hex)
  Subtract the following hexadecimal numbers--- 8416 - 2A16 Add the following BCD numbers--- 1001 and 0100 How much time does a serial link of 64 Kbps take to transmit a picture  with 540 pixels Give the output when the input of a D-flip flop is tied to the output  through the XOR gate. How much time does a serial link of 64 Kbps take to transmit a picture  with 540 pixels. Give the output when the input of a D-flip flop is tied to the output  through the XOR gate
Implement the NOR gate as an inverter. What is the effect of temperature on the Icb in a transistor What is the bit storage capacity of a ROM with a 512*4 organization? What is the reason of the refresh operation in dynamic RAMs ? Suppose that the D input of a flip flop changes from low to high in the  middle of a clock pulse. Describe what happens if the flip flop is a  positive edge triggered type?
  How many flip flops are required to produce a divide by 32 device ? An active HIGH input S-R latch has a 1 on the S input and a 0 on the R  input. What state is the latch in? Implement the logic equation Y = C^BA^ + CB^A + CBA with a multiplexer.
(where C^ stands for C complement)
