Generalised Reed-Muller ASIC converter.

  The paper outlines the design for a new IC for bidirectional conversion between the functional and operational domains of logic funcyions. The circuit can generate all fixed polarities of Generalised Reed-Muller expansions for a given Boolean expression. Since all polarities are computed simmultaneously, they may be compared to find the optimal polarity of the logic function. Further, the chip can convert the positive polarity coefficients of the product terms back to minterm coefficients. The chip is designed using the Mentor Graphic V8.4 and standard cell 0.7 μm CMOS.
