The emitter function iogic (EFL) structure is a bipolar integratable circuit suitable for large-scale-integration (LSI). The structure is a development of current-mode logic and it permits the LSI realization of complex logic functions with similar silicon area and power dissipation to a single conventional ECL gate. In order to use the structure in logic design, some of its properties are developed and a logic design technique is given with examples.
Cellular arrays, emitter function logic (EFL), large-scale integration (LSI), logic design, prime implicants, row-coincidence tables, universal logic modules. search Council of Canada under Grant A9334.
