IntroductionIndividual logic gates are limited in what they can do. However, circuits that consist of multiple gates canmake decisions, work through mathematical computations, control other circuits, and perform manyother complex operations. Even the most advanced and complicated microprocessors consist of manyinterconnected basic gates. Combinational logic circuits are circuits that combine logic gates so that thestate of the inputs alone determines the state of the output. The binary-to-octal and binary-to-hexadecimal converters are examples of combinational logic circuits. The value on the output displaydepended only upon the state of the input switches.In Part 1 of this experiment, you will examine how to design and implement a 2-of-3 voting circuit by 1)defining the relationship between the input and output states with a truth table, 2) translating the truthtable entries into a Boolean expression, and 3) verifying the circuit implementation for the Booleanexpression by simulating the circuit in Multisim. In Part 2, you will examine how to simplifycombinational logic using Boolean algebra and graphical tools called a Karnaugh map and verify thesimplified expression for the 2-of-3 voting circuit.ReadingKleitz, Digital Electronics: A Practical Approach with VHDL, 9th Edition, Chapter 5.

A project will advance to the next level if at least two of the judges approve the project with a “Yes” vote. A project will not advance if at least two of the judges reject the project with a “No” vote.
