Karnaugh Mapping

Karnaugh Mapping

Written by Tony R. Kuphaldt, this chapter of All About Circuit's fourth volume on Digital circuits describes the Karnaugh maps, "a simplification tool applicable to digital logic." The chapter is divided into eleven sections, including an introduction, on topics including Venn diagrams and sets, Logic simplification with Karnaugh maps, and Minterm vs. maxterm solution. Each section has clear illustrations and examples, and most have a concise, bulleted review of what was covered at the end of the page. This is an excellent resource for educators in physics and electronic engineering classrooms to introduce lessons or units on Karnaugh mapping and digital logic.
