## INFORMATION

K-maps are a graphical method used to simplify Boolean algebra expressions. They provide a systematic way to minimize Boolean functions and are useful for simplifying expressions.

Karnaugh maps represent Boolean functions graphically in a tabular form. Each cell in the table corresponds to a unique combination of input variables.

The main technique used with Karnaugh maps is grouping adjacent cells with the value 1 to identify patterns that can be combined to simplify the expression.

Karnaugh maps are widely used in digital logic design.

Karnaugh maps provide a visual and systematic approach to simplifying Boolean expressions, making them an essential tool in digital logic design.

The simplified expression can be obtained in product of sums form by grouping 0's (and X's if necessary) in the map.

## INPUT FORMAT

Enter the minterm numbers to the first input box and don't care conditions to the second one. The minterms and don't care conditions should be different numbers. These numbers should be separated by commas or spaces.

### WHAT IS K-MAP SOLVER FOR MINTERMS (WITH DON'T CARES-POS)?

Karnaugh map solver for minterms,

• Constructs a Karnaugh map based on the entered minterm numbers and don't care conditions,
• Indicates the groups in different colors and
• Finds the simplified expression in product of sums form.

### HOW TO USE THE K-MAP SOLVER FOR MINTERMS (WITH DON'T CARES-POS)?

Karnaugh map solver for minterms can be used in two ways.

• #### USER INPUTS

You can enter the minterm numbers and don't care conditions to the input boxes and click on the "SOLVE" button. The result and explanations appaer below the calculator.

• #### RANDOM INPUTS

You can click on the DIE ICON next to the input boxes. If you use this property, a set of minterm numbers and don't care conditions are generated and entered to the calculator, automatically. The result and explanations appaer below the calculator. You can create your own examples and practice using this property.

• #### SELECTING THE NUMBER OF VARIABLES

The number of variables are automatically set to a number based on the entered minterms and don't care conditions. You can select the number of variables manually by clicking on the corresponding radio button under the input box.

• #### CLEARING THE INPUT BOX

To find the simplified functions corresponding to the entered minterms, you can clear the input boxes by clicking on the CLEAR button.

• You can copy the generated solution by clicking on the "Copy Text" link, appaers under the solution panel.
