Input/output Spec Table:

• Let us look at the pencil-and-paper assignment which was due today:
• Describe a physical implementation of gadget which takes two inputs and one output.Each of the inputs can either take the value YES or the value NO.The same goes for the output. The gadget is specified by the input-output table to the left. Describe how the values NO and YES are represented in your physical system for the inputs as well as for the output.

Combinational Logic Units

After the previous prelude we will discuss the following points:

• Combinational Logic Units
• Specifying a CLU with a Input/Output Tables
• Reading off a Logic Diagram of a CLU from its 0-1 Specification Tables
• Specifying a CLU with an Algebraic Expression of the Switching Algebra

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Combinational Logic UnitsSome Definitions
• Combinational logic: a digital logic circuit in which logical decisions are made based only on combinations of the inputs. e.g. an adder.
• Sequential logic: a circuit in which decisions are made based on combinations of the current inputs as well as the past history of inputs. e.g. a memory unit.
• Finite state machine: a circuit which has an internal state, and whose outputs are functions of both current inputs and its internal state. e.g. a vending machine controller.

Combinational Logic Units
• Combinational logic: a digital logic circuit in which logical decisions are made based only on combinations of the inputs. e.g. an adder.

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Combinational Logic Unit

• Translates a set of inputs into a set of outputs according to one or more mapping functions.
• Inputs and outputs for a CLU normally have two distinct (binary) values: high and low, 1 and 0, 0 and 1, or 5 v. and 0 v. for example.
• The outputs of a CLU are strictly functions of the inputs, and the outputs are updated immediately after the inputs change. A set of inputs i0 – in are presented to the CLU, which produces a set of outputs according to mapping functions f0 – fm

Specifying Combinational Logic Unit

Enough if you know how to handle the case of ONE output and arbitrary number of inputs:

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

SpecifyingCombinational Logic Unit
• CLU (with one output )is completely specified by an input/output table; if you have more than one output you will have an input/output table for each output
• Since the inputs and outputs assume only two values: say 0 or 1 (low voltage or high voltage etc) a CLU can be specified by 0-1 Table or Truth Table

from spec table to (LD) for a CLU

Given the Truth table we can implement a circuit as follows:

For each input provide a line(wire) and a negated wire (by using inverters)

Draw a multi-AND gate (that is, n-AND gate where n equals the number of inputs) for each 1 in the output column

Wire the AND gates to the appropriate inputs (see next slides)

Feed the output of all the AND gates into an OR gate

In the next slides we show in detail how the above algorithm works.

from spec table to LD for (CLU)
• Does our 4-step algorithm produce the right Logic Diagram for the Combinational Logic Unit? Why?
• This algorithm will generally not produce the most frugal combinational logic unit.
• Despite the previous remark this algorithm is still very important! Why?
• This algorithm convinced us that for each input/output table (0/1-table) there exists an LD ( or for that matter a CLU) satisfying it. Besides the LD (or for that matter also the CLU) produced by the algorithm there are, of course, many more LDs satisfying the 1/0-table (some of them will in general be more efficient)
• Secondly: once you can translate your task into an input/output table you are home free (we can worry later about optimizing the circuit)

Boolean Algebra

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Boolean Algebra
• Actually a special kind of Boolean Algebra namely, Switching Algebra

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Intro to Boolean Algebra; Specifying
• Sofar we can specify a CLU either by a Logic Diagram of NOT, AND and OR gates or by a 1/0-table
• There is at least a third way of specifying CLU namely via Algebra (algebraic equations/expressions)
• What is the advantage of Algebraic specifications? Among others: can simplify circuits by manipulating expressions with “pencil and paper” or computer programs

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Boolean Algebra

• In order to analyze and design digital combinational logic units we need a mathematical system.
• Binary logic system called Boolean Algebra is used.
• George Boole (1815-1864): “An investigation of the laws of thought” – a book published in 1854 introducing the mathematical theory of logic.
• Boolean Algebra deals with binary variables that take 2 discrete values (0 and 1), and with logic operations.
• Binary/logic variables are typically represented as letters: A,B,C,…,X,Y,Z or a,b,c,…,x,y,z.
• Three basic logic operations:
• AND, OR, NOT(complementation or negation).

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Basic Logic Operations

• AND operation is represented by operators “•” or “ ” or by the absence of an operator.
• Z = X•Y or Z = X Y, or Z = XY is read “Z is equal to X AND Y” meaning that:
• Z = 1 if and only if X = 1 and Y = 1; otherwise Z = 0.
• AND resembles binary multiplication:

0 • 0 = 0, 0 • 1 = 0,

1 • 0 = 0, 1 • 1 = 1

• OR operation is represented by operators “+” or “ ”.
• Z = X+Y or Z = X Y is read “Z is equal to X OR Y” meaning that:
• Z = 1 if X = 1 or Y = 1, or if both X = 1 and Y = 1. Z = 0 if and only if X = 0 and Y = 0.
• OR resembles binary addition, except in one case:

0 + 0 = 0, 0 + 1 = 1,

1 + 0 = 1, 1 + 1 = 1 (≠ 102)

• NOT operation is represented by operator “ ’ ” or by a bar over a variable.
• Z = X’ or Z = X is read “Z is equal to NOT X” meaning that:
• Z = 1 if X = 0; but Z = 0 if X = 1
• NOT operation is also referred to as complement operation.

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Basic Identities of Boolean Algebra

Let X be a boolean variable and 0,1 constants

1. X + 0 = X -- Zero Axiom

2. X • 1 = X -- Unit Axiom

3. X + 1 = 1 -- Unit Property

4. X • 0 = 0 -- Zero Property

5. X + X = X -- Idempotence

6. X • X = X -- Idempotence

7. X + X’ = 1 -- Complement

8. X • X’ = 0 -- Complement

9. (X’)’ = X -- Involution

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Boolean Algebra Properties

Let X,Y, and Z be boolean variables

• Commutative

10. X + Y = Y + X 11. X • Y = Y • X

• Associative

12. X + (Y+Z) = (X+Y) + Z 13. X•(Y•Z) = (X•Y)•Z

• Distributive

14. X•(Y+Z) = X•Y + X•Z 15. X+(Y•Z) = (X+Y) • (X+Z)

• DeMorgan’s Theorem

16. (X + Y)’ = X’ • Y’ 17. (X • Y)’ = X’ + Y’

• In general for DeMorgan,
• ( X1 + X2 + … + Xn )’ = X1’ • X2’ • … • Xn’,
• ( X1 • X2 • … • Xn )’ = X1’ + X2’ + … + Xn’

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

The Duality Principle

• The dual of an expression is obtained by exchanging (• and +), and (1 and 0) in it, provided that the precedence of operations is not changed.
• Cannot exchange x with x’.
• Example:
• Find the dual of expression: x’yz’ + x’y’z
• Answer: (x’ + y + z ’) •(x ’ + y’ + z)
• Dual expression does not always equal the original expression.
• If a Boolean equation/equality is valid, its dual is also valid.

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

The Duality Principle (cont.)

With respect to duality, Identities 1 – 8 and Properties 10 – 17 have the following relationship:

1. X + 0 = X 2. X • 1 = X (dual of 1)

3. X + 1 = 1 4. X • 0 = 0 (dual of 3)

5. X + X = X 6. X • X = X (dual of 5)

7. X + X’ = 1 8. X • X’ = 0 (dual of 7)

10. X + Y = Y + X 11. X • Y = Y • X (dual of 10)

12. X + (Y+Z) = (X+Y) + Z 13. X•(Y•Z) = (X•Y)•Z (dual of 12)

14. X•(Y+Z) = X•Y + X•Z 15. X+(Y•Z) = (X+Y) • (X+Z) (dual of14)

16. (X + Y)’ = X’ • Y’ 17. (X • Y)’ = X’ + Y’ (dual of16)

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Absorption Property (Covering)

• X + X•Y = X -- (absorption property)
• X•(X+Y) = X -- (dual absorption property)
• Proof:X + X•Y = X•1 + X•Y = X • (1 + Y) = X • 1 = X
• Can you prove the dual absorption property?

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Principle of duality:The dual of a Boolean function is gotten by replacing AND with OR and OR with AND, constant 1s by 0s,and 0s by 1s

Occam’s Razor for Boolean Algebras

A(A’+B) = AB A+A’B=A+B elimination of complement

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

A more formal definition Boolean Algebras
• A Boolean algebra is a set B on which two binary operations + and • and one unary operation ′ are defined and in which there are two distinct elements 0 and 1 such that the following properties hold for all x, y, z ∈ B:

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

A more formal definition of Boolean Algebras (continued)

1a. x + y = y + x 1b. x • y = y • x (commutative properties)

2a. (x + y) + z = x + (y + z) 2b. (x • y) •z = x • (y • z) (associative properties)

3a. x + (y • z) = (x + y ) • (x + z)

3b. x • (y + z) = (x • y) + (x • z) (distributive properties)

4a. x + 0 = x 4b. x • 1 = x (identity properties)

5a. x +x’ = 1 5b. x • x’ = 0 (complement properties)

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

The specific Boolean Algebra we use

Example Let B = {0,1} ( the set of integers 0 and 1) define binary operations + and • on B by

x + y = max(x,y ),

x • y = min(x,y )

Then we can illustrate the operations of + and • by the tables

• 0 1 + 0 1

0 0 0 0 0 1

1 0 1 1 1 1

A unary operation ′ can be defined as follows

0 1

1 0 Thus 0′ = 1 and 1′ = 0. [B, +, •, ′, 0, 1] is a Boolean algebra We can verify the 10 properties by checking all possible cases

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Remark on Boolean Algebras
• idempotent property: x + x = x
• This holds in any Boolean algebra since

x + x = (x + x) • 1 (4b)

= (x + x) • (x + x′ ) (5a)

= x + (x • x′) (3a)

= x + 0 (5b)

= x (4a)

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Non-Example on Boolean Algebra
• The operations on integers share many of the properties of the operations for boolean algebras.
• Idempotency is a property which is not shared.
• Thus the set of integers is not a boolean algebra (aside from needing a complementation operation)

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

Transition from 1/0 table to LD to Boolean expression
• Combinational Logic Units with one output can be specified by
• A Boolean equation
• A Logical Diagram
• 1/0 table
• We already saw how to get a Logic Diagram (LD) from a 1/0 table; it is clear that from the Logic Diagram you can read off a 1/0 table
• It is also clear how you get a Boolean expression from a 1/0 table:

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

From 1/0 table to Boolean expression

S = A ′ B ′ C + A ′ B C ′ + AB ′ C ′ +ABC

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

From Boolean expression to 1/0 table?

F= A ′ B ′ C + B

Digital Techniques Fall 2007 André Deutz, Leiden University

To remember:

With Boolean expressions (BE), or Logic Diagrams(LD) or Truth tables(TT) you can specify CLU with one output.

The transition between any of the two of ( BEs, TTs or LDs) can be readily done
