  • n. Plural form of operand.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Each bit position in the ALU operands is considered separate, and each such bit slice is combined to form the full width ALU.

  • If one of the operands is a memory variable of the wrong size, you either change the declaration of the variable (DB to DW or vice versa) or override the size of the variable in this instruction only, by appending a "B" or "W" to the memory operand.

  • If any of the operands is a float, then all operands are evaluated as floats, and the result will be a float.


  • Since the operands may come from anywhere, and the result may go anywhere, we will add registers to the inputs and outputs.

  • The general design of a bit slice computes all required functions of a particular bit in the operands in parallel, and then uses a multiplexer to choose between the functions:

  • Post-structuralist: By rejecting neo-Enlightment notions that privilege "light," we can conceptualize the relationship between optically-oriented envisioning and those signifiers that address interpretations of post-colonial modernism as an established text within the framework of which, intertextually, we are lead to reject any causal relationship between the operands and the motivators.

  • Vector spaces and more generally modules are restricted forms of rings in which the operands of multiplication are required to be a scalar and a vector.


  • No matter how much secrecy these companies use to shroud the actual variables and operands within their algorithms, humans will reverse engineer them eventually and game them anyway.

  • An expression can be broken down into operators and operands.
