 Name: Digital Logic Worked Example: Optimal construction of Boolean logic function with simple operators ID: m36290 Language: English (en-us) Summary: This module represents a "worked example" of a digital logic design problem that is either commonly seen in conventional education on the subject or would be constructive in building one's understanding in a certain area of digital logic. Specifically, it deals with the procedural synthesis/optimization of a Boolean logic function using only one type of "basic" logic operator (i.e. NAND/NOR); this module will outline (both algebraically and by gate-level analysis) the procedure and reasoning behind creating XNOR logic from only NORs.
