## How many and Gates does a 4-bit decoder have?

A 4-bit decoder has 4 input lines and 16 output lines. That is 16 decoding gates are required to decode all possible combinations of four bits.

### How many gates are in a decoder?

This simple example above of a 2-to-4 line binary decoder consists of an array of four AND gates. The 2 binary inputs labelled A and B are decoded into one of 4 outputs, hence the description of 2-to-4 binary decoder.

**What is a 4 input decoder?**

Binary to Decimal Decoder Decoders are used to get the decimal digit corresponding to a specific input combination. A BCD number needs 4 binary digits to represent the 0 to 9 decimal digits, thus it consists of 4 input lines. It consists of 10 output lines corresponding to 0 to 9 decimal digits.

**How does a 4 to 16 decoder circuit work?**

4 to 16 decoder circuit is obtained from two 3 to 8 decoder circuits or three 2 to 4 decoder circuits. When two 3 to 8 Decoder circuits are combined the enable pin acts as the input for both the decoders. When enable pin is high at one 3 to 8 decoder circuits then it is low at another 3 to 8 decoder circuit.

## What is decoder in logic gate?

A decoder is a logic circuit that converts a coded input to a “decoded” output by converting the input into a different format. Binary decoders can be used to: Convert BCD/binary value into “denary format”, “octal format” or “hexadecimal format”, Decoding the opcode of an instruction (Decode stage of the FDE Cycle).

### What is decoder in logic circuit?

A decoder is a circuit that changes a code into a set of signals. It is called a decoder because it does the reverse of encoding, but we will begin our study of encoders and decoders with decoders because they are simpler to design.

**What is a decoder in logic circuits?**

A decoder is a multiple-input, multiple-output combinational logic circuit. It converts the n bit data inputs into the coded 2n outputs. It decodes the information hidden by the encoder. While decoding, the decoder generally places a logic 1 at one of its outputs to create the exact code.

**What is a 4 line to 16 line decoder?**

The 74HC154; 74HCT154 is a 4-to-16 line decoder/demultiplexer. It decodes four binary weighted address inputs (A0 to A3) to sixteen mutually exclusive outputs (Y0 to Y15). The device features two input enable (E0 and E1) inputs.

## Which decoder is combined to get a 4 to 16 line decoder?

4 to 16 decoder circuit is obtained from two 3 to 8 decoder circuits or three 2 to 4 decoder circuits. When two 3 to 8 Decoder circuits are combined the enable pin acts as the input for both the decoders.

### How many inputs are required for a 4 16 decoder?

Here, number of outputs = 16. 16 = 24 = 2n. Thus, number of inputs is 4. 9.
