### Boolean Algebra and Logic Gates

CE 40 B

18 June 2003

Basic Definitions
• Common Postulates
• Closure
• Associative Law
• Commutative Law
• Identity Element
• Inverse
• Distributive Law
• Field
• set of elements with two binary operators
Axiomatic Definition of Boolean Algebra
• George Boole
• Two binary operators (+ and ·)
• Huntington Postulates
• Closure, Identity, Commutative, Distributive, Complement
• Show that Huntington Postulates are valid for B = {0,1}
Basic Theorems and Properties of Boolean Algebra
• Duality
• Expression remains valid even after operators and identity elements are interchanged
• Some theorems
• x + xy = x
• (x + y)’ = x’y’
Boolean Functions
• Logical relationship between binary variables
• Can be represented by a truth table
• Can be transformed into a logic diagram
• Example: f = x + y’z
Canonical and Standard Forms
• Maxterms and Minterms
• Canonical Forms
• Sum of Minterms
• Product of Maxterms
• Standard Forms
• Sum of products
• Product of sums
Other Logic Operations
• Formed from combination AND, OR, and NOT.
• 16 possible functions for 2 binary variables
Integrated Circuits
• IC
• Silicon chip containing electronic components for constructing digital gates
• Different Levels of Integration
• Circuit complexity
• Number of logic gates in one package
• SSI, MSI, LSI, VLSI
Integrated Circuits
• Digital Logic Families
• Circuit technology – how the logic gates are constructed
• TTL, ECL, MOS, CMOS
• Characteristics
• Fan-out
• Fan-in
• Power dissipation
• Propagation delay
• Noise margin
Integrated Circuits
• Computer-Aided Design
• Complex designs require computers
• Electronic Design Automation (EDA)
• Hardware Description Language (HDL)
• Verilog, VHDL
