NOVEL APPROACH TO SYNTHESIS OF LOGIC CIRCUITS BASED ON MULTIFUNCTIONAL COMPONENTS
Adam Crha – Richard Růžička – Václav Šimek
Multifunctional logic continuously becomes an important way how to implement compact and cheap circuits with intrinsic reconfiguration features. Polymorphic electronics concept with its substantial technological independency opens a way to fulfil this objective through the adoption of emerging semiconductor technologies and advanced synthesis methods. The paper comes with a proposal of a novel synthesis method oriented on the exploitation of polymorphic electronics principles. Key part of it is based on Boolean divisor identification and function kernelling technique. The proposed method is evaluated with several test circuits.
