Flip-Flop Conversion using Clustering
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis work describes the conversion of flip-flops (FF) using Clustering method to generate the Sum of Products (SOP) from the K-Maps. The approach to this work is divided into two major steps: generation of the conversion table and extraction of SOP from the K-Map using clustering. The conversion table was constructed using the characteristic table of the required FF and output obtained from the excitation table of the available FF. In the second part, a row was randomly selected with output 1 as a cluster and compared the minterms with the cluster to create groups of 4. If the matching pattern bit is 1, this step was repeated until all the output 1’s are covered in the group. The process was repeated for groups of 2 but the pattern matching bit is 2. The quality among the groups was then checked and the SOP published by adding all the maximum quality patterns. From the benchmark analysis it was found that, the approach converts the flipflops with the minimum time.
