Homework Help: Truth tables->logic gates

  1. Feb 1, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Is there some sort of method for converting a truth table into logic gates? The diagram contains 8 MOSFETS, 4 inputs. I have developed a truth table but have since been asked to convert to logic diagram using AND, OR, and invert gates only. Or is it trial and error? I have 16 rows, 4 inputs each, and an output, along with which MOSFETS are on or off.

    If you use a K-map to plot the truth table, and express the K-map as a sum of products (SoP), then the implementation is straightforward with NOT, AND and OR gates. Is that what you mean?
