4.1Switching Algebra

1. Introduction

• Logic circuits are classified into two types:
• Combinational: whose outputs depend only on its current inputs.
• Sequential: depend not only on the current inputs but also on the past sequence of inputs, possibly arbitrarily far back in time.
• Analysis and Synthesis:
• Analysis start with a logic diagram and proceed to a formal description of the function performed by that circuit, such as a truth table or a logic expression.

5. Duality

• Principle of Duality: Any theorem or identity in switching algebra remains true if 0 and 1 are swapped and · and + are swapped throughout.
• Examples

(Covering)

x+x·y=x

x·(x+y)=x

x·y+x·z+y·z=x·y+x ·z

(Consensus)

(x+y) ·(x+z) ·(y+z)= (x+y) ·(x+z)

(DeMorgan’s theorems)

4.1Switching Algebra
• Consider the following statement

x+x·y=x (T9)

x·x+y=x (According the principle of duality)

x+y=x (According theorem T3’)

How absurd it is! Where did we go wrong?

The problem is in operator precedence.

Actually x+x·y=x+(x·y) ∴ x·(x+y)=x

Operator precedence: ( ), AND, OR

Sum-of-products expression: is a logic sum of product terms. (e.g. z+w·x·y+x·y·z)

• Product-of-sums expression : is a logic product of sum terms.

[ e.g. z·(w+x+y)·(x+y+z) ]

6. Standard Representations of Logic

Functions

• Truth table: The brute-force representation simply lists the output of the circuit for every possible input combination.

Normal term: is a product or sum term in which no variable appears more than once.

e.g. z, w·x·y, x·y·z, w+x+y, x+y+z

4.1Switching Algebra
• Minterm: An n-variable minterm is a normal product term with n literals. There are 2n such product terms..
• Maxterm: An n-variable maxterm is a normal sum term with n literals. There are 2n such sum terms.

4.1Switching Algebra
• We have now learned five possible representations for a combinational logic function:
• A truth table
• An algebraic sum of minterms, the canonical sum.
• A minterm list using the ∑ notation.
• An algebraic product of maxterms, the canonical product.
• A maxterm list using the ∏ notation.
