The problem of choosing a standard circuit package with which to realize a given logic design can be solved for threshold logic design by the use of majority gates. However, the use of asymmetric threshold gates allows substantial improvements in the amount of logic done per signal pin of the circuit package. Examples are given, illustrating savings in logic design effort, total cost of integrated circuit packages, and total cost of printed circuit boards.
Asymmetric gates, building blocks, logic implementation, majority gates, pin/gate ratio, threshold gates, universal gates.
