ABSTRACT
Marketing demands another feature to be added to the computer system. This is often a system designer's worst nightmare. Sometimes, this feature can be accomplished through software. But this is not usually an optimal solution. Not only is the number of functions increasing, but the complexity of those functions is increasing as well. One segment that alleviates this burden is presented in this article: the discrete logic segment. Logic is now appearing in much wider bit widths. The traditional quads, hexes, and octals, which are mostly relegated to telecommunication or desktop applications, are starting to show up in portable applications.
