David A. Snyder, PE
This course familiarizes the reader with the use of Karnaugh maps for the purpose of optimizing digital (binary) functions. Optimization in this case means to reduce the number of logic gates or relay contacts required to implement a digital function. More than 80 illustrations and several examples are given to increase one’s understanding of the concepts presented. This course can be a refresher for readers who have already been exposed to Karnaugh maps, but it can also be a simple introduction to Karnaugh maps for readers who are not yet familiar with them. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with binary and hexadecimal numbering. Boolean algebra will be used as a checking tool in this course, but the quiz will not require any Boolean algebra.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
