Outline Don’t-Care Conditions NAND – NOR implementation.
Exclusive-OR Function

Don’t Care Conditions Minterms associated with a function specifies the conditions under which the function is equal to 1. The function is equal to 0 for the rest. In some applications, the function is not specified for certain combinations of the variables (e.g. BCD) Incompletely specified functions: are functions that have unspecified outputs for some input combinations. Unspecified minterms of a function are called don’t-care conditions

Don’t Care Conditions (cont.)
Don’t-care conditions can be used for further simplification. Marked with an X in the map. In choosing adjacent squares to simplify the function in a map, the don’t-care minterms may be assumed to be either 0 or 1. Example: Simplify the Boolean function: F(w,x,y,z) = ∑(1,3,7,11,15) d(w,x,y,z)= ∑(0,2,5) F=yz+w’x’ F=yz+w’z

NAND-NOR Implementation
Digital circuits uses NAND or NOR rather than AND and OR gates. Easier to fabricate with electronic components and are the basic gates used in all IC digital logic families. They are called universal gates Any Boolean function can be implemented with them.

NAND Circuit The NAND gate represents the complement of the AND operation Abbreviation of Not AND Two equivalent graphic symbols for the NAND gate: Can implement any digital systems. NOT Gate AND Gate OR Gate

NAND Circuit (Cont.) The implementation of Boolean functions with NAND gate requires that the function be in SoP form Procedure : Simplify and express the function in SoP. Draw a NAND gate for each product term containing at least 2 literal.  ( first-level gates) Draw single NAND gate in the second level with outputs of first-level gates. A term with a single literal requires inverter.

Example Implement the following functions with NAND gates F= AB+CD

Multilevel NAND Circuits
If we choose to implement the function as a mixed notation (without reducing the expression into a SoP form) The procedure is to change every AND gate to an AND-invert graphic symbol and every OR gate to an invert-OR symbol . Make sure that there are two bubbles along the same line

Implement the following functions with NAND gates.
Example Implement the following functions with NAND gates. F = A(CD + B)+ B C’ F = (AB+ AB )(C+D) (page )

NOR Implementation The NOR gate represents the complement of the OR operation Abbreviation of Not OR Two graphic symbols Can implement any digital systems

NOR Circuit (Cont.) A two-level implementation with NOR gate requires that the function be simplified into PoS form Procedure : Simplify and express the function in SoP. Draw a NOR gate (OR-invert symbol) for each sum term containing at least 2 literal.  ( first-level gates) Draw single NOR gate (invert-AND symbol)in the second level with outputs of first-level gates. A term with a single literal requires inverter.

Implement the following function with NOR gates.
Example Implement the following function with NOR gates. F = (A + B)(C + D)E

Multilevel NOR Circuits
The procedure for converting a multilevel AND-OR diagram to an all-NOR diagram is to change every AND gate to an invert-AND graphic symbol and every OR gate to an OR-invert symbol . Make sure that there are two bubbles along the same line

Implement the following functions with NOR gates.
Example Implement the following functions with NOR gates. F = (AB+ AB )(C+D) (page 111)

(XOR) Exclusive-OR function
x  0 = x x  1 = x x  x = 0 x  x = 1 Commutative and associative

XOR implementation A two-input XOR function is constructed with conventional gates Or with NAND gates

Odd Function Example : Three variables F =  (1,2,4,7)
The multiple- variable XOR is an odd function: it is equal to 1 if the inputs variables have an odd number of 1's. Example : Three variables F =  (1,2,4,7) Figure input XOR gate

(XOR) Exclusive-OR function
Only a limited number of Boolean functions can be expressed in terms of XOR operations. Nevertheless, this function is particularly useful in arithmetic operations , error detection and correction circuits. Parity Generation and Checking (page num 120)
