ExtendedArithmeticThe KE8E Extended Arithmetic Element (EAE) for the PDP8/E enables the central processor to perform arithmetic operations at high speeds by incorporating the EAE components with the existing central processor logic circuitry so the two systems operate asynchronously. The option consists of two QUAD modules containing circuits that perform parallel arithmetic operations on positive binary numbers. It includes the registers and control logic circuits described in pages of the Small Computer Handbook. The engineering drawings are shown in KE8EEAE Egineering drawings.
