CMPT 150 Combinational Circuits Page 1 Design Process b Typically the design process is performed top- down b This means the circuit function is specified by a text description plus constraints on cost, performance, and reliability b Hardware Description Languages such as VHDL allow designers to describe the circuit function using a kind of programming language b CMPT 150 Combinational Circuits Page 2 Steps in the Design Process b Specification : Write a specification for the circuit. b Formulation : Derive the truth table or initial Boolean equations that define the required relationship between inputs and outputs. b Optimization : Use k-maps to come up with a logic diagram for the resulting circuit using ANDs, ORs, and inverters. b Technology Mapping

CMPT 150 Combinational Circuits Page 3 Example: Design of a BCD-to-Excess-3 Code Converter b Specification: The excess-3 code for a decimal digit is the binary combination corresponding to the decimal digit plus 3. The circuit should convert a BCD digit to an excess-3 digit.
