## Study Notes

### Boolean Analysis of Logic Circuits

#### Combinational Logic Circuits

• Can be analyzed by writing the expression for each gate and combining the expressions according to the rules for Boolean algebra
• Each gate is represented by a Boolean expression
• The output of each gate is a function of the inputs

#### Steps to Write the Boolean Expression for a Given Combinational Logic Circuit

1. Label the inputs and outputs: Identify the inputs and outputs of the circuit and label them accordingly
2. Identify the gates: Identify each gate in the circuit, including the type of gate (AND, OR, NOT, etc.)
3. Write the Boolean expression for each gate: Using the rules of Boolean algebra, write the Boolean expression for each gate
• AND gate: A ∧ B = AB
• OR gate: A ∨ B = A + B
• NOT gate: ¬A = A'
4. Combine the expressions: Combine the Boolean expressions for each gate according to the circuit structure
• Use the rules of Boolean algebra to simplify the expression
5. Simplify the expression: Simplify the final Boolean expression to its most concise form

#### Example

• Consider a simple combinational logic circuit with two inputs (A and B) and one output (Y)
• The circuit consists of an AND gate and an OR gate
• The Boolean expression for each gate is:
• AND gate: A ∧ B = AB
• OR gate: A ∨ B = A + B
• The combined Boolean expression is: Y = (A ∧ B) ∨ (A ∨ B) = AB + A + B
• Simplifying the expression: Y = A + B

### Key Concepts

• Boolean algebra: a mathematical system for manipulating logical operations
• Boolean expression: a mathematical expression that represents a logical operation
• Combinational logic circuits: digital circuits that can be analyzed using Boolean algebra
