TT-Min - the Fast SOP Minimizer




VLSI pages


System requirements:

Supported input and output format: PLA

Command line syntax:

ttmin input output [depth]

Parameter description:

Input file must be in a PLA format.

The depth parameter determines, how deep will the redundancy check step go, so the value should be a number between 0 and number of inputs of the source PLA (default value is 3). Values above 6 have only small impact on the result quality however.
By setting the depth parameter to 0, only the basic fast minimization will be performed, yielding a non-prime cover, but skipping the more complex steps of the algorithm (useful especially in cases where the off-set is too hard to compute).
