Student Name: Page 2 of 17 Question 1: Boolean Logic Theory (15 marks) Consider the following Boolean function: f(b,d,f,g,e) = bdg+b’dfg+b’d’g+bd’eg. a) Find the minimal SoP form of function f using the Quine-McCluskey method. Clearly state which are the essential prime implicants and prime implicants. b) Perform the factorization of the minimized SoP from part b). Try to get as small a form as possible. c) Perform the decomposition of the minimized function from part b). Solution a) We need to express f in terms of minterms. f(b,d,f,g,e) = bdg+b’dfg+b’d’g+bd’eg = bd(f+f’)g(e+e’) + b’dfg(e+e’) + b’d’(f+f’)g(e+e’) +bd’(f+f’)ge = bdfg(e+e’) + bdf’g(e+e’) + b’dfge + b’dfge’ + b’d’fg(e+e’) + b’d’f’g(e+e’) +bd’fge + bd’f’ge = bdfge + bdfge’ + bdf’ge + bdf’ge’ + b’dfge + b’dfge’ + b’d’fge + b’d’fge’ + b’d’f’ge + b’d’f’ge’ +bd’fge + bd’f’ge = Σ m(11111, 11110, 11011, 11010, 01111, 01110, 00111, 00110, 00011, 00010, 10111, 10011) = Σ m(00010, 00011, 00110, 00111, 01110, 01111, 10011, 10111,11010, 11011, 11110, 11111)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
