- Analogue signal processing is achieved by using analogue components such as:
- Resistors.
- Capacitors.
- Inductors.

- The inherent tolerances associated with these components, temperature, voltage changes and mechanical vibrations can dramatically affect the effectiveness of the analogue circuitry.

- Use of transistor as a switch
- Controlling the transistor operation in either ON and OFF state
- If use more than two logic levels, transistor needs to be operated in the active region where operating the transistor is difficult

- F(a,b,c) = a’bc + abc’ + ab + c
• Variable

– Represents a value (0 or 1), Three variables: a, b, and c

• Literal

– Appearance of a variable, in true or complemented form

– Nine literals: a’, b, c, a, b, c’, a, b, and c

• Product term

– Product of literals, Four product terms: a’bc, abc’, ab, c

• Sum‐of‐products (SOP)

– Above equation is in sum‐of‐products form.

– “F = (a+b)c + d” is not.

- Can be represented in two forms:
- Sum-of-Products (SOP)
F(A, B, C) = A’BC + BC’ + AB

- Product-of-Sums (POS)
F(A, B, C) = (A + B’ + C’).(B’ + C).(A’ + B’)

- Sum-of-Products (SOP)

- The Boolean function expressed in SOP form can implemented using two levels of basic logic gates:
- 1st level of AND gates to represent the AND terms and,
- The 2nd level of OR gates to OR the AND terms

- For example the function
F(X,Y,Z) = XZ+Y’Z+X’YZ

can be represented using 2-input AND and OR gates as shown in the Fig. 1:

Fig. - 1

- The Boolean function expressed in POS form can implemented using two levels of basic logic gates:
- 1st level of OR gates to represent the OR terms and,
- The 2nd level of AND gates to AND the OR terms

- For example the function
F(X,Y,Z)=(X+Z)(Y’+Z)(X’+Y+Z)

can be represented using 2-input AND and OR gates as shown in the Fig. 2:

Fig. - 2

- SOP or POS form of expression of Boolean logic function is called the standard form
- The other way to represent the Boolean logic function is the canonical form

- The Boolean function is represented as either
- Sum-of-Minterms (SOM) or
- Product-of-Maxterms (POM)

- It is useful to specify Boolean functions in
a form that:

– Allows comparison for equality.

– Has a correspondence to the truth tables

- Canonical Forms in common usage:
– Sum of Minterms (SOM)

– Product of Maxterms (POM)

- product term is a term where literals are ANDed.
Example: x’y’, xz, xyz, …

- Minterm: A product term in which all variables appear exactly once, in normal or complemented form
Example: F(x,y,z) has 8 minterms

x’y’z’, x’y’z, x’yz’, ...

- Function with n variables has 2n minterms
- A minterm equals 1 at exactly one input combination and is equal to 0 otherwise
Example: x’y’z’ = 1 only when x=0, y=0, z=0

- A minterm is denoted as mi where i corresponds the input combination at which this minterm is equal to 1

- Two variables (X and Y) produce 2x2=4
combinations

XY (both normal)

XY’ (X normal, Y complemented)

X’Y (X complemented, Y normal)

X’Y’ (both complemented)

- Maxterms are OR terms with every variable in true or complemented form.
X+Y (both normal)

X+Y’ (x normal, y complemented)

X’+Y (x complemented, y normal)

X’+Y’ (both complemented)

- The index above is important for describing which variables in the terms are true and which are complemented.

- Boolean function can be expressed algebraically from a give truth table
- Forming sum of ALL the minterms that produce 1 in the function

- Boolean function : Expressed algebraically from a give truth table
- By forming logical product (AND) of ALL the maxtermsthat produce 0 in the function

- Example:
- Consider the function defined by the truth table
- F(X,Y,Z) = Π M(1,3,4,6)
- Applying DeMorgan
- F’ = m + m + m + m = Σm(1 3 4 6)
- F = F’’ = [m1 + m3 + m4 + m6]’
- = m1’.m3’.m4’.m6’
- = M1.M3.M4.M6
- = Π M(1,3,4,6)

- A function can be expressed algebraically as:
• The sum of minterms

• The product of maxterms

- • Given the truth table, writing F as
• Σmi – for all minterms that produce 1 in the table,

or

• ΠMi – for all maxterms that produce 0 in the table

- Mintermsand Maxterms are complement of each other.

POS SOP

F =(A’+B)(A’+C)(C+D)

=( A’+BC)(C+D)

= A’C+A’D+BCC+BCD

= A C+A D+BC+BCD

= A’C+A’D+BC

SOP POS

F = AB + CD

= (AB+C)(AB+D)

= (A+C)(B+C)(AB+D)

= ( A+C)(B+C)(A+D)(B+D)

- An implementation of a Boolean Function requires the use of logic gates.
- A smaller number of gates, with each gate (other then Inverter) having less number of inputs, may reduce the cost of the implementation.
- There are 2 methods for simplification of Boolean functions.

- Algebraic method by using Identities & Theorem
- Graphical method by using KarnaughMap method
–The K‐map method is easy and straightforward

–A graphical method of simplifying logic equations or truth tables

-Also called a K map

- A K‐map for a function of n variables consists of 2n cells, and,
- in every row and column, two adjacent cells should differ in the value of only one of the logic variables
- Theoretically can be used for any number of input variables, but practically limited to 5 or 6 variables.

- Gray code is a binary value encoding in which adjacent values only differ by one bit

- The truth table values are placed in the K map
- Adjacent K map square differ in only one variable both horizontally and vertically.
- The pattern from top to bottom and left to right must be in the form
- A SOP expression can be obtained by Oring all squares that contain a 1.
A’B’, A’B, AB, AB’

00, 01, 11, 01

- In a K‐map, physical adjacency does imply gray code adjacency
F =A’B’ + A’B = A’ F = A’B + AB = B

- Combinational circuit
– Output depends on present input

– Examples: F (A,B,C), FA, HA, Multiplier, Decoder, Multiplexor, Adder, Priority Encoder

Y = F (a,b)

Propagation delay

Y(t+tpd)=F(a(t), b(t))

- Reception counter : When you reach a Academic Institute
– Receptionist Ask: Which Dept. to Go ?

– Receptionist Redirect you to some building according to your Answer.

- Decoder : knows what to do with this: Decode
• N input: 2N output

• Memory Addressing

– Address to a particular location

- 2‐input decoder: four possible input binary numbers
- So has four outputs, one for each possible input binary number

- Using a n‐to‐2n decoder and OR gates any functions of n variables can be implemented.
• Example:

S(x,y,z)= Σ(1,2,4,7) , C(x,y,z)=Σ(3,5,6,7)

• Functions S and C can be implemented using a 3‐to‐8 decoder and two 4‐input OR gates

- Mux: Another popular combinational building block
– Routes one of its N data inputs to its one output, based on binary value of select inputs

- 4 input mux needs 2 select inputs to indicate which input to route through
- • 8 input mux 3 select inputs
- • N inputs log2(N) selects
– Like a rail yard switch

- Output depends not just on present inputs
- But also on past sequence of inputs (State)
• Stores bits, also known as having “state”

• Simple example: a circuit that counts up in binary

- Flight attendant call button
– Press call: light turns on

• Stays on after button released

– Press cancel: light turns off

– Logic gate circuit to implement this?

- We need some sort of feedback
– Does the right S Q circuit on do what we want?

• No: Once Q becomes 1 (when S=1), Q stays forever – no value of S can bring back to 0
