Definition of combinational circuit in US English:

combinational circuit


  • A circuit whose output depends only on the state of its inputs.

    Compare with sequential circuit
    • ‘For the combinational circuit module of the circuit, you may only use '02 and '04 devices.’
    • ‘Using this result, we develop a synthesis procedure for combinational circuits that can be tested for correctness of timing.’
    • ‘A combinational circuit is a special case of a sequential circuit whose internal state is not taken into account.’
    • ‘The half-subtracter is a combinational circuit which is used to perform subtraction of two bits.’
    • ‘This paper presents an efficient formal logic verification algorithm for combinational circuits.’
