Part – B (5 x 16 = 80 marks)

11 (a)(i) Simplify the following Boolean function using 4-variable map

F(w,x,y,z) = ∑(2, 3,10, 11, 12,13,14,15) (8)

(ii) Draw a NAND logic diagram that implements the complement of the following

function F(a,b,c,d) = ∑m(0,1,2,3,4,8,9,12) (8)


(b) (i) Using Quine McCluskey method simplify the boolean expression

F(x1,x2,x3,x4) = ∑(1,3,4,5,9,10,11)+d(6,8) (16)

12 (a) Design a carry look ahead adder with necessary diagram (16)


(b) .(i) Explain the operation of a 4-bit magnitude comparator circuit (16)

13 (a) Design a 3-bit binary counter using T-flip-flop that has a repeated sequence of six state

000-001-010-100-101-110. Give the state table,state diagram and logic diagram. (16)


(b) (i) Construct a counter circuit and write a HDL program module for the same. (16)

14 (a) (i) Write a short notes on FPGA (6)

(ii) Implement the following two boolean function with a PLA

F1(A,B,C)=∑m(0,1,2,4), F2(A,B,C)=∑m(0,5,6,7)



(b) (i) Design a combinational circuit using ROM. The circuit accepts a three bit

number and output a binary number equal to the square of the input number (10)

(ii) Write a short notes on RAM with a neat sketch (6)

15 (a) Develop the state diagram and primitive flow table for a logic system that has 2 inputs, x and y and an output z. And reduce primitive flow table. The behavior of the circuit is stated as follows. Initially x=y=0. Whenever x=1 and y=0 then z=1, whenever x=0 and y=1 then z=0.

When x=y=0 or x=y=1 no change in z, it remains in the previous state. The logic system has edge triggered inputs without having a clock. The logic system changes state on the rising edges of the 2 inputs.Static input values are not to have any effect in changing the z output (16)


(b) Draw the fundamental mode and pulse mode asynchronous circuit and analyze the same in detail. (16)
