• The Karnaugh map (K map) is a graphical tool usedto simplify a logic equation or to convert a truthtable to its corresponding logic circuit in a simple,orderly manner. The truth table gives the value of output x for each combination of input values. If two cells have the same value and are next to each other, the terms are adjacent. Single cells or groups that could be part of a larger groupare known as implicants A group that is as large as possible is a prime implicant. (Cannot be combined with withanother term to eliminate avariable). Any set of implicants that encloses (covers) all values (1’s) is “sufficient ”; • If a prime implicant has any cell containing 1 (i.e. a minterm) that cannot be covered by any other prime implicant , it is an “essential prime implicant” • If a prime implicant is not essential it is a “secondary prime implicant”. Do not care :For expression minimization, don’t care values (x) can be assigned either 0 or 1

    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.
