Min and Max Terms Minterm: The “product term” corresponding to each row of the inputs of a TT, that makes that row and only that row result in a “1”. Maxterm: The complement (inverse) of the minterm. Inputs Output minterm symbol maxterm symbol X Y Z F 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 Maxterm is a “sum term”corresponding to each row of the inputs of a TT, that makes that row and only that row results in a “ ”. Note: minterm and maxterm are independent of the output as you can see from the table. 2/4 Lecture 5 Atousa Hajshirmohammadi

Unformatted text preview: Min and Max terms (cont.) How can we write the Boolean equation using the minterms? How can we write the Boolean equation using the maxterms? Lets put some values in our previous TT: Inputs Output minterm symbol maxterm symbol X Y Z F 1 m M 1 m 1 M 1 1 m 2 M 2 1 1 m 3 M 3 1 1 m 4 M 4 1 1 1 m 5 M 5 1 1 m 6 M 6 1 1 1 m 7 M 7 Using minterms: F = Using max terms: F = 3/4 Lecture 5 Atousa Hajshirmohammadi Another Example X Y Z F 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 4/4 Lecture 5 Atousa Hajshirmohammadi...
