### Full Adder

The VHDL Code for full-adder circuit adds three one-bit binary numbers (A B Cin) and outputs two one-bit binary numbers, a sum (S) and a carry (Cout). Truth Table describes the functionality of full adder. sum(S) output is High when odd number of inputs are High. Cout is High, when two or more inputs are High. VHDL Code for full adder can also be constructed with 2 half adder Port mapping in to full adder.

### VHDL Code for Full Adder

library IEEE; use IEEE.STD_LOGIC_1164.ALL; entity full_adder_vhdl_code is Port ( A : in STD_LOGIC; B : in STD_LOGIC; Cin : in STD_LOGIC; S : out STD_LOGIC; Cout : out STD_LOGIC); end full_adder_vhdl_code; architecture gate_level of full_adder_vhdl_code is begin S <= A XOR B XOR Cin ; Cout <= (A AND B) OR (Cin AND A) OR (Cin AND B) ; end gate_level;

### Testbench VHDL Code for Full Adder

Your truth table is wrong! Please correct for others.

Thanks john, truth table is corrected now.

The truth table is still incorrect. Here is the correct truth table:

Fixed Again Thanks ðŸ™‚

This s not behavioral modeling ,This is dataflow modeling.

Yes correct. The xilinx tool automatically generate architecture name by default as behavioral.
