There are a number of methods which use a clause table to generate the prime implicants of a switching function. This paper describes a technique for extending the clause table approach to the minimization of multi-terminal networks. The specific extension described here extends the algorithm of Slagle et al. to generate the important implicants of a set of switching functions and to determine a minimum realization.
Boolean minimization, clause table, combinational logic, heuristics, multi-output network, trees.
