The 4-Bit Accumulator



This is the 4-Bit Accumulator we made at the end of last semester. An accumulator is different than an adder because it uses the result of the last operation as an input for the next operation. This one can add, subtract, and load.

Just wanted to say you guys are awesome. I'm a student at Carnegie Mellon University studying Chemical Engineering, and I applied to Olin but unfortunately was rejected. Keep up the innovation and creativity.

This is spectacular. I've been all over the web for the last 2 hours learning how logic gates work and how they related to your project. Prior to this I had no knowledge of binary or how computers worked. I knew they ran off of 1's and 0's but I never knew how they did it. I'm a sophomore in high school, and I needed something interesting like this for my engineering class. Thanks so much, this is amazing.

PS, it would be really helpful if you could post a picture of the different gates without the front cover so we can see the inner workings. but if you don't want to reveal that much, I understand.
