Electronics and logic gate question

  1. Sep 19, 2009 #1
    I know this is probably in the wrong board, but.

    I'v just been looking into some Boolean algebra to convert truth tables into a set of logic gates representing a circuit.

    If i were attempting to represent a certain truth table, but i was limited to ONLY using NAND gates. (their the only one's i can find). How would i go about doing this.

    IM assuming i get a boolean expression for the truth table, and then attempt to factorize it into a certain form which uses only NAND gates. BUt im not exactly sure how to proceed.

    You can also do this with NOR gates, they are both very flexible.

    Is this for a particular application, or is it a classroom problem?
