A Large Scale Integration (LSI) data flow component is described for use as a building block, the component being capable of use singly or in combination to provide data flow paths and functions of different data widths for a processor or microprocessor. A component with an eight-bit data flow is described as a "byte slice", wherein individual byte control is provided within a multiple-byte configuration so that single data flow components within the group can operate independently of other components under control of external logic. Components may operate on a stand-alone, a multiple-byte, or nonactive-byte basis. A control scheme permits functions of one component to be influenced by actions or logic of another component to permit efficient implementation of arithmetic algorithms.
