Computer-Aided Synthesis or Multiple-Output Multilevel NAND Networks witk Fan-in and Fan-out Constraints
Issue No. 12 - December (1971 vol. 20)
A straightforward efficient computer algorithm for synthesizing multiple-output NAND (NOR) switching networks is presented which takes practical fan-in and fan-out limitations of logic gates into account. The algorithm is highly iterative and hence is very suitable for realizing large-size switching functions by a digital computer. The algorithm has been programmed in Fortran and a great deal of statistical data has been obtained to demonstrate its efficiency in terms of gate count as well as computing time. It is also efficient for hand execution
