Problem 6.1 We have a ROM that has N entries of M bits each. We are interested in using it to implement a logic function. (a) How big is this ROM in bytes? Express your answer in terms of N and M. a. ࡺൈࡹ (b) How many bits are needed to address the ROM? Express your answer in terms of N and M. a. ܔܗ܏ ሺࡺሻ (c) How many distinct N-variable functions with 1-bit outputs can we implement with this ROM? Express your answer in terms of N and M. Copied from an email to Michael: The answer to the problem is: ࡺכࡹ . I got this by diving the total number of bits we have (N times M) by the number of bits it takes to represent a single N-variable function, 2^N. We need to floor this because it doesn't make much sense to represent some fraction of a function. (d) Let N = 32 and M = 2. Can we implement an arbitrary Boolean function f of 6 variables using the ROM and at most 4 logic gates? If so, draw the circuit. If not, why not?

    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.
