## Description

• For this lab, only use the 74HC00 and 74HC02 ICs to implement your logic, the bar LEDs as outputs,

and the switches as inputs

• Find the minimal SOP expression of f using a Karnaugh map (you may draw the groups)

f (a, b, c, d) = Xm (0, 2, 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15)

• Convert the minimal SOP expression of f to use only two-input NAND gates using Boolean algebra

• Implement f using only NAND (74HC00) gates and demonstrate it to your lab TA

• Find the minimal representation of f using only two-input NOR gates (you may draw the groups on

any Karnaugh map used)

– Describe how you found the representation

– Provide the final boolean expression using only two-input NOR gates

• Implement f using only NOR (74HC02) gates and demonstrate it to your lab TA

• Verify your two implementations of f yield the same outputs by using a truth table

The report for this lab should include the following sections:

(b) The boolean algebra to convert to only NAND/NOR

(c) The truth table you used to test your implementations

3. Observations
