Arduino based Boolean Logic Simplifying Calculator
In this paper, we propose a calculator that can minimize Boolean expressions (up to 4 variable) to its simplified logical expression in Sum of Product (SoP) form. Boolean simplification is vital for reducing the number of literals, which allows less complex circuitry for practical implementation. The work presented features an ARDUINO NANO processor. The circuitry is designed in a PCB board for a compact form factor. The algorithm used follows the Karnaugh-map (K-map) looping approach. This is one of the most essential methods in minimizing any Boolean expression. In the digital electronics arena,Boolean simplification is highly used in chip designing. By reducing logic gates a nano-chip can be built at the lowest cost and space. This proposed tool will be handy for such Boolean simplification as it is fast, efficient and provides accurate results.
